10 Facts You Need to Know about Essential Oils

#1 Plastic or Glass/Stainless Steel

Essential oils are best stored in dark glass containers. Stainless steel water bottles can be used as well. Why? Essential oils can eat away at the plastic or degrade it.

#2 Diffuser instructions

If using a cold-water diffuser, check your water well size. Most 4 hour diffusers have a 100-200 mL water fill-line capacity. You only need to use 4-6 drops per 100 mL of water, or 2-3 drops per hour of run time.

#3 Balance and Support

Essential oils help to balance and support our bodies. If you are not making the right choices in your diet, exercise, or habits, essential oils will not be able to do their job to their fullest.

#4 Caffeine addiction

If you have a caffeine addiction with coffee, you can detox from it with an essential oil regimen that will only take about 2 weeks. Ask me, and I will let you know about the regimen!

#5 Menthol

Do not use essential oils rich in menthol such as Peppermint on the throat or neck area of children under 30 months old.

#6 Eyes

Keep essential oils away from your eyes. If the oils get into your eyes, sooth with a drop of vegetable oil, NOT water.

#7 Epileptics

Epileptics and those with high blood pressure should consult their health care professional before using some essential oils.

#8 Pregnancy

Pregnant or nursing women should consult their health professional before using essential oils.

#9 Blood thinners/ Circulation

While essential oils will not interact with blood thinners, some will have a similar effect as blood thinners, so be aware of those oils. With Young Living, the oils that may cause increased circulation would be the internal use of Peppermint, Wintergreen, and Oregano. There are some oils pointed out to avoid because of their coumarins. Others are singled out due to their excitable nature. The simple fact is that oils with coumarin or oils that can increase your energy are not a major problem when used as directed. Remember though that each person responds differently, so be your own best advocate and pay attention to your body.

#10 Blood pressure

Essential oils do not lower or raise blood pressure in any major way. Essential oils can help to dilate arteries, but usually in such small amounts that you won’t notice it on your doctor’s charts. Again, remember each person responds differently, so be your own best advocate and pay attention to your body.

Research for Frankincense and Cancer

Robert Tisserand is one of the “Fathers” of aromatherapy here in the United States.

“So many people believe that frankincense oil is a proven treatment for cancer, that I receive messages every day asking me how it should be used for all kinds of malignancies. The fact is, there is no clinical research. There is not one single study published in a peer-reviewed journal, in which frankincense essential oil was successfully used to treat any kind of cancer.” 

Robert Tisserand, “Frankincense Oil and Cancer in Perspective”

FOUNDER AT TISSERAND INSTITUTE

Robert Tisserand is a speaker, educator and consultant on the science and benefits of essential oils and their safe and effective application. In 1977 he wrote the first English language book on aromatherapy. In addition to teaching online courses, in recent years he has inspired live audiences in Europe, Asia, North America and South America. He was privileged to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the AIA in Denver in 2007. In 2014 he co-authored the second edition of Essential Oil Safety, which has helped set industry safety standards.
