How to Use Essential Oils

Essential oils are a wonderful tool to add to your self-care and spiritual practice.  They help support your mood when you are feeling stressed, anxious, tired, frustrated, etc. They support healing by preventing colds, flu, infection and improve your immune response. Oils also help enhance your mood for a higher spiritual connection. What’s not to love?

Essential oils are a wonderful tool on their own and I feel they are even more powerful when used with other modalities for healing. I encourage each person to intuitively explore whether or not essential oils are right for them. If something does not feel right to them, I ask them to go with it. Sometimes that shows up as a resistance and  sometimes it reveals itself another way.

The uses for oils are limitless and some of the ailments and remedies listed below is a great place to start. These holistic approaches I find to be most effective. Here’s a quick list of essential oils uses from my dear friend and Young Living mentor, Sue Sides:
