There are three basic ways to use essential oils: inhalation, topical application, and internal consumption.
Inhalation The inhalation of essential oils heightens the senses and can trigger numerous desired responses in the body. Below are several techniques used to inhale essential oils:
1: Direct inhalation-simply smell them.
2: Diffuse the oils using a Young Living diffuser which disperses the oil in a micro-fine vapor into the air. The Young Living diffuser will not heat the oils, thus ensuring full benefits, as extreme heat can damage important constituents in the oil.
3: Fill a humidifier with water. Put a tissue or small cloth, sprinkled with a few drops of oil, in front of the escaping steam. ( Do not put oil in your humidifier. It will float on top of the water instead of rising with the water vapor and may cause damage to your humidifier.)
4: Carefully pour hot water into a bowl and add a few drops of oil. Cover your head and bowl in a tent-like fashion with a towel. Breathe deeply and slowly.
Topical Application Apply essential oils directly onto the skin where indicated. Dilute with V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex or a pure vegetable oil (e.g., olive or almond ) before applying if dilution is indicated in the Application Chart. Dilution may protect against possible skin sensitivities. Key points of application on the body are:
To apply topically on any of these areas, follow these simple steps:
1. Carefully tip the oil bottle and drop 2-3 drops in the palm of the hand or directly on the desired application area.
2. If dropping 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, use your hand to massage the oil in a circular motion into the skin. Repeat if desired.
Attention: Essential oils are very potent, and some may be irritating to the skin. If irritation occurs, immediately apply V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex or pure vegetable oil to the area to dilute. Please read label directions for each individual oil before using.
You can also create your own massage oil blends by mixing your favorite essential oils with V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex or by using Young Living’s pre-mixed massage oil blends (e.g., Relaxation, Ortho Ease) to relax, uplift, soothe, and relieve.
Where to Topically Apply Essential Oils
- Crown of head
- Behind ears
- Upper back
- Over vital organs
- Soles and top of feet
Suggested internal consumption methods:
1: Put several drops of oil into an empty capsule and swallow with water.
2: Add 1-2 drops to a glass of water or rice milk.
3: Put 1-2 drops onto a piece of bread or add to your meals when cooking.
4: Add 1-2 drops onto a teaspoon of Blue Agave and swallow.
5: Drop directly onto the tongue and swallow. Exercise extreme caution when using this method. Many oils are very strong and should be tested by pouring a single drop onto a spoon and tasting a small portion to determine the amount of oil to be used.
Young Living essential oils are pure, which makes them powerful and effective. For the responsible use of essential oils, read the complete label on each bottle and follow the safety guidelines and tips founding the Essential Oils User’s Guide available from your Young Living Independent Distributor.

When my feet, arch, toes – whatever! Hurts or is sore I whip out the lemongrass, rub some on, and in
a few minutes I have forgotten the problem. No more pain.
Hope is so uplifting. I have a lot of favorites. Peace and Calming and Lavender calm me, Lemongrass
for sore muscles, Peppermint for pain and Frankincense to fight any cancer that may be hiding. Thieves I use
for sore thoughts and colds coming on.
I don’t want to miss any conventions in the future! It’s been so up lifting.
When I started using the ART – I noticed IMMEDIATELY the change in my skin texture. It made it feel
SO SILKY. I love it.
Using Young Living essential oils and products have helped me to totally overcome all symptoms of
I love Tender Tush because it is so versatile.We have used it for burns, cuts, scrapes, rashes and
Whenever I attend convention I always have it in my mind that I will learn something that I need to
know or be4 reminded of. This year what stood out for me was how our essential oils and NingXia Red
change our health at the cellular level.
The ART skin care was working so well on my face I decided I should be using it on my feet. I noticed
after a short time that calluses I have had for many years began to disappear. My feet looked younger just like
About four years ago, my wife had become involved with essential oils. She is a stay at home mother
and we were both looking for supplemental income to help offset the high cost of living in Flagstaff.
During these four years, Kathryn and I have had numerous experiences of pain relief, injury remedies,
sickness prevention or intervention, etc. my family that includes three lovely daughters, have benefited physically,
spiritually, mentally and emotionally from essential oils. Our favorites include Frankincense, Lavender,
Pan Away, Thieves and Di Tone. I encourage my wife to continue selling and associating with Young Living. I
try to help her by having home parties and taking care of or entertaining our little ones.
Now I do have several concerns that surely Young Living may provide direction for. One, of two of our
daughters has Asthma.We tried several remedies; however, once or twice a year our Asthma attack has
required a trip to the ER. Then, $4000 to $6,000 later they have had to be admitted for several days for treatment.
Two, close loved ones have either committed suicide or contemplated the idea. How does once convince
a loved one to turn from conventional medical treatments and consider an alternative that may cost
more as well as require more patience and faith!
Berry Young Juice is our family’s favorite. But now after convention I can only imagine it will be NingXia
Red! It gives us energy and has greatly improved our immune system. Two of our girls have asthma and the
BYJ reduces the inflammation in their lungs which reduces the their asthma attacks. Also by reducing respiratory
infections we reduce their likelihood of an asthma attack.
My husband and I enjoy the antioxidants that keep us looking and feeling young into our 40’s. ART is
what women need - Great technology that works with natural ingredients.Women use way too many chemicals
in their bodies in the name of beauty. My skin is smoother with less deep wrinkles. I’d like to use it longer.
Hands down Lavender. It is very soothing and calming for napping and sleeping – a great plus with
three little kids! Both my husband and oldest daughter have witnessed miracles when they cut their big toes
(separate incidents) halfway down the middle. Lavender numbed the toe, cleaned the wound, stopped the
bleeding and healed both toes without the loss of the nail. And of course for burns – nothing is better.
This conference has reminded to not take the oils for granted. Gary reminded us of the sacredness of
the oils. And to not take Young Living for granted. What an inspired company – sharing health and incredible
research with the world! What a blessing to hear the passion and love from the leaders of the company for the
mission and for all of us involved.
I’m so excited to have first hand knowledge from Dr. Lawrence, Dr. Rodier and Dr.Young regarding the
Wolfberry. It is timely what we are all looking for and what we need to improve every faucet of our lives.

My first experience with the oils was last winter. I bought Golden Touch I and it worked fabulously for
my son and husband a couple of times during the winter.
I also experienced how well Lavender works on burns. I had blisters on three of my fingers and the
Lavender not only took the pain away, but the blisters were gone the next day. As a test for myself, the next
time I got burned I used Aura Cacea Organic Lavender and it didn’t take the pain away or the one little blister I
had. I’m sold!
I’ve also been eating macrobiotic cooking for almost two years and that also makes a world of difference.
A day in the Boundary Waters!
My sister, daughter and I went to the Boundary Waters and decided to use YLEO Sunsation Suntan Oil.We
canoed on the water and sunny days on the water for two days. I got a beautiful tan, my sister says she usually
burns, then tans, then peels.Well, she got a tan that stayed. My daughter put the Sunsation Oil on except
for the tops of her ears. Her ears burned and blistered but was tan everywhere else.
The other thing I noticed was that the mosquitoes and bugs stayed away. Later in the evening, I mixed
Purification with the Sunsation Oil to make it even stronger. It was great to get a tan and no mosquitoes!!
So many of the products are my favorites and I love Berry Young Juice and Vitagreen together.
I used Pan Away from my essential 7 kit on a shoulder injury my husband has had for a year now. The
dull ache that his injury created prevents him from raising his arm above shoulder level at times.
Before I applied Pan Away to the affected area he was having difficulty raising his arm at all. After
applying the oil (immediately after!!) he could raise his arm all the way up with no pain at all.We were both
amazed at the effectiveness of that blend. Anytime the problem comes back we use it, but he rarely has any
problems with his shoulder anymore.
Purification and Lemon EO’s are two oils I mix with water in a spray bottle and use it to clean the
kitchen counters, bathroom sinks/counters and toilets. I just recently became aware of the Thieves cleaning
product and will definitely try that, but I love the fresh clean smell of the Purification/Lemon mix and will probably
always use it. It beats the chemical smell of 409 and other household products i9 used to use!!
Taking enzymes helps with digestive problems I used to have. To help with adrenal problems, Thromin
has helped. Ultra toothpaste has helped whiten the teeth.

Young Living products have helped me in many different levels and ways in my life.
I have used the oils many times especially on an emotional level to assist with moving forward through many
of the challenges that I’ve encountered in my life. This has been a boost for me when I’ve needed it most
Really like BYJ and am happy about the health benefits it offers me. Di-Tone has been most helpful
for any bouts I have had with “bad food” (food poisoning) or upsets in digestion.
Lavender has always been a staple for relaxation or to perk me up.
Peppermint I use for so many things: pain, breath freshener, clearing sinus, sore muscles, headaches,
it is really fantastic!
Thieves is a must for everyone who wants to be healthy and cold and flu free.
I always put Lemon in my water especially when I’m eating out – strange water, dirty glasses, etc.
I like so many of the products that it’s hard to pick just one.
Convention has given me a new outlook on my life and my business and has provided me with more
information to back up what I have to share.
I like the ART Kit and have definitely seen reduction in wrinkle and the texture of my skin.
Falls Church, VA
ART-ART-ART! I love it!
Have used it for 6 1/2 months now. My pores are smaller, my wrinkles are less pronounced and my skin is so
SOFT! (I amaze myself daily!)
Several friends – and my daughter – have comments or how great my skin looks.
P.S. during the day I follow the ART cream with the Boswellia wrinkle cream. I like the gentle shine it adds to
My favorite oils are Frankincense and Sandalwood. At six weeks ago I discovered a growth under my
breast. The growth bled when I scratched the top of it gently, so I decided to treat it as if it were cancerous.
Once or sometimes twice a day I put Frankincense and Sandalwood on it.
In these six weeks I have watched it clear – cell-by-cell. Now it is 3/4 gone and should be totally gone
in the next two weeks.
This is my 9th convention (including Nashville). Each one changes my passion for the products, Young
Living and especially for Gary and Mary’s leadership.

My son gets swimmer’s ear that use to require antibiotics now we use Lavender and Pan Away. With
Peppermint, R.C. and Ravensara we don’t need to use any over the counter drugs for colds, coughs, or sinus
stuff. Peppermint is my favorite oil. I use it to cool off, stomach indigestion, sore muscles, headaches, and
I enjoy being around so many like-minded people. It encourages me and gives me hope to continue on even
when I encounter a lot of closed minded people.

Young Living has changed our life for the better.We no longer look to medical doctors for antibiotic
cures; we get to cure ourselves at home with essential oils and the help of ESP.
Therefore, we have more time to be happy and live to do the fun things we want to do, such as swimming,
playing outside and running. Many people are not even healthy enough to walk. I am so happy I found
essential oils to keep others and us happy and healthy. I went to a Bath and Body Works class at Holdingford
Public Schools and it changed my life forever. The essential oil blend for Mastitis is the first encounter I had
and now I can cure illnesses at home. Thank you Gary Young!
Cinnamon is my favorite product. I use it on the bottom of my feet every morning. It keeps me from getting
ill. With all of its antiviral antibacterial and much more of it’s outstanding properties.
Young Living has changed my life, no antibiotics at home cures help others be happy. The lives of my
family members, friends and neighbors all changed because I attend a simple Essential Oils Bath and Body
Here’s my story. The reason I fell in love with Young Living Essential Oils… My husband and I have
four children, they are beautiful and healthy because God gave them to us. I previously worked on my dad’s
farm and was a secretary at a local high school with three children in childcare. I wanted to stay home with
our children and teach them to be properly disciplined and love them the way a mother should and watch
them develop into caring happy, healthy children of God. Therefore, I decided to get my license and be a professional
childcare provider.We had our fourth child in September of 2004 and I signed up for a Bath and
Body class to do something for myself and learn how to relax again since I seem to have forgotten in the past
seven years. I have a problem I love to do for others before I do things for myself.
The day arrives but surely I could not attend the Bath and Body class I had a fever from Mastitis. I was
worried so I called to check if someone else could take my place at the class to learn about it and give me the
The last time I had Mastitis with our third child, my husband couldn’t get away from work. I had a hard
time finding someone to care for my children while I tried to get to the medical doctor for antibiotics. (Dare I
say that word. the symptoms of Mastitis floored me literally! I had cold chills, hot flashes, nausea, swollen,
sensitive breasts and I felt like a magnet stuck to a tin floor. I just couldn’t get up. The antibiotics helped me
get through the situation but I wasn’t happy!
Now I know I had Mastitis with the fourth child. I could feel it coming on. As sick as I felt in December
of 2004 I decided to get enough energy to attend my class. I loved every informational minute of it and I didn’t
want to leave. I purchased bath salts with my first few drops of essential oil Valor. I figured it would help my
husband and I balance our lives.
I spoke to our class director Gloria Brinker. I thanked her for sharing her knowledge and mentioned I
had to leave because I had a fever from Mastitis and didn’t feel well.
Gloria took good care of me. She mixed up a blend to treat mastitis and with it I felt well. That evening
and the next day I was able to care for my family and myself again. I was cured from Mastitis after a few applications.
Now I help others and want to make a career of it.
Using Berry young Juice has given my husband, my brother positive results and myself! It has given us
more energy and keeps us health. Our children love BYJ and we have noticed when others get the flu symptoms
throughout school and the neighborhood our children (family0 are happy and healthy or they don’t get
the severe symptoms they others get from the flu.
Toe fungus can be healed with Melrose. My mother uses Sulfurzyme and BYJ for incontinence. My
daughter uses Thieves and warm water in a shot glass.
