How to Use Essential Oils Safely

Essential oils are extracted from the roots, bark, leaves, branches and flowers of plants and can be 70-90 times more powerful than herbs. One smell from a bottle of a high quality essential oil will alert your senses and trigger a cascade of physiological responses. Because when we inhale oils, use them topically or if we are educated to do so, use them internally – we need to take our specific situation into consideration and use them carefully.

I love using my oils each day personally and professionally but I do so in a way that suits my body and life. Here is an excerpt from my Essential Oil Alchemy Program. Please note that you need to do your own research based on your health situation and always consult a licensed health practitioner if you are ever unsure.

Wishing you love, light and a little Lavender,

    Hi Lisa,
    For years I have used this mixture in my bath: 1 pound Epsom Salts, 1/2 cup baking soda, 2 Tbls olive oil, and about 5-8 drops lavender essential oil. In your lecture you said not to use Epsoms or baking soda while using essential oils. Would you please explain? Thanks!

      Hi Amy – I found your message! 🙂 Yes – by all means use your salts. I am glad you are using olive oil as a carrier oil. The only time there can be issues is when a carrier oil is not used because the oils are not dispersed without one :). I am so happy you love using oils!
