Aromatherapy involves using essential oils extracted from
plants, for psychological and physical well-being.
Aromatherapy is defined as the use of pure, therapeutic grade essential oils to
facilitate the health of body, mind and spirit.
Scent is the most enduring of our senses.
It has the power to transform our emotions, and heal our bodies. It can take us to another place and time.
Aromatherapy and Essential Oils
Aromatherapy is the inhalation of plant oils, called essential oils, for improved physical,
mental, and emotional well-being. Essential oils are the pure essence of the plant—often
referred to as nature's living energy—and can provide both psychological and physical
benefits when used correctly. Essential oils can be used on their own for aromatherapy
or with complementary natural ingredients, such as vegetable or carrier oils.
Aromatherapy for Improved Health and Wellness
Aromatherapy is one of many ways you can enjoy the therapeutic benefits of essential oils.
When practicing aromatherapy it's vital that only pure, undiluted essential oils are used.
Synthetic, perfume-grade products lack the necessary level of beneficial constituents and
offer little or no positive effect.
Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ (YLTG) Essential Oils Aromatherapy is the inhalation of plant oils, called essential oils, for improved physical,
Only by diffusing pure Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ (YLTG) essential oils can
you create a proper mood, state of mind, or improve your physical well-being.
The highest-grade aromatherapy oils on the market today are manufactured by Young Living.
The Science of Aromatherapy
When a YLTG essential oil is diffused, it is inhaled and processed through the
which then sends the therapeutic benefits of the aroma to the brain. Depending on the specific
constituents in the oil, you may begin to feel the release of negative emotions, the soothing
of undue muscle tension, or experience the cleansing effect of the oils as your body eliminates toxins.
How to Use YLTG Essential Oils in Aromatherapy
When inhaling oils for aromatherapy, here are some commonly used techniques:
Inhale essential oils directly—simply smell them straight from the bottle.
Diffuse essential oils using a device that disperses the oil into the air in a micro-fine vapor. Young Living offers a line of essential oil diffusers that effectively spreads the aromatic benefits of essential oils through the air without damaging their important constituents.
Use essential oils with a humidifier. Sprinkle a few drops of essential oil on a tissue or small cloth and place in front of the escaping steam. Avoid putting the oil directly into your humidifier, as it will float on top of the water instead of dispersing with the water vapor.
Pour hot water into a bowl and add a few drops of essential oil. Lower your face a few inches over the bowl and cover your head and the bowl with a towel, then breathe deeply and slowly.
Essential oils can be applied directly to the skin.
Be sure to read the label before using oils topically, as some oils must be first
diluted with a carrier oil — like Young Living's V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex — prior to use.
Key areas for topical application are:
Crown of head
Over vital organs
Soles and tops of feet
Steps for topical application are:
Place 2–3 drops of oil in the palm of your hand or directly on the desired area.
If placing oil in your hand, rub palms together in a circular motion and then
massage oil onto the desired point of application. If applying directly to the
desired area, massage the oil into your skin using a circular motion. Repeat as desired.
Note: Essential oils are very potent and some may be irritating to the skin.
If irritation occurs, immediately apply a carrier oil or pure vegetable oil to the
area to dilute. Please read label direction for each individual oil before using.
