H O W TO U S E ESSENTIAL OILS Escape the day to day by transforming your next shower into a spa-like getaway! Turn weeknight cooking into a culinary adventure! Add a drop of elegance to your skin care regimen, or enhance your wellness with a boost from botanicals. Follow the guide below—along with label instructions—to experience the countless transformative benefits of essential oils. INTERNALLY Boost flavor, and wellness * with Vitality essential oils! Support your healthy lifestyle by diluting your favorite Vitality oils in a 1:1 ratio in a vegetarian gel capsule. Give your hydration goals a boost without adding calories by flavoring water with a drop or two. Create new flavor combinations when you add them to your favorite NingXia beverages! Use Vitality oils in lieu of ground herbs or spices to heat up your cooking. DILUTION Some essential oils may be too strong to be used internally or applied topically on their own. See individual oil labels for specific dilution instructions. Use Young Living’s V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex or other pure vegetable oil when diluting to the appropriate strength for your needs. AROMATICALLY Close your eyes and breathe deep! Rub 2–3 drops between your palms, cup them together, and inhale. Turn bath time into bliss time by adding several drops to your tub’s water. Fill every room in your home with your favorite fresh scents by diffusing essential oils. TOPICALLY Show your skin some love! Add 2–3 drops to a carrier oil during a calming or therapeutic massage. Brighten your complexion with a few drops of a floral essential oil or Frankincense added to your daily moisturizer. Essential oil safety guidelines Due to the potency of essential oils, it is important to follow safety guidelines when using them. • Read the product label for appropriate use. • Avoid putting essential oils in your eyes, ear canals, and other sensitive areas. • Stop using the oil if irritation or discomfort on the skin occurs, and do not rinse with water. Apply a carrier oil to the affected area. • Citrus-based oils and blends may cause temporary photosensitivity.
