1. How to use essential oils like an Aromatherapist? Become an aromatherapist. It is indeed a simple solution. Love essential oils and aromatherapy, become certified. Many classes cost about the same as enrollment in a lot of MLM companies, and you have not upline. As an educator, full disclosure, I think this is the WAY to go. Getting an aromatherapy education will benefit you and last for a lifetime. It can also be a skill to assist you with a business or practice you already own or work within. We train hundreds of nurses, doctors, midwives, doulas, massage therapists, chiropractors, soapers, toiletries business owners, gardeners, parents etc.. You can fit aromatherapy into many types of work and businesses, or you can have the certification for the health of your family.
2. Above all, don’t drink essential oils. I don’t care who says it is safe. Overall and the way it has been suggested to be used, it is NOT. Look essential oils can remove paint, yes paint, varnish and even sealant from granite, why would you drink that? The more you drink, the more you use, someone is making money. Essential oil ingestion is a fad, a fad that in some areas have caused poison control calls to increase over 100%. Many of the cases have to do with ingestion or improper application on children.
3. It hurts! Then stop. Aromatherapists do not advocate the “healing crisis” theory. It is called a negative reaction. I don’t care if “Lavender is safe” is the argument, any oil, even safe ones can cause a reaction for some people, or cause reactions with improper use, some reactions can be severe, like seizures. Reactions can range from rashes, hives, breathing issues to seizures. The most serious reactions come from improper use and ingestions. If it hurts, burns, stings, stop using it. This means it is not a good fit for your body.
Signs and Symptoms
Nausea, vomiting.
Eye irritation or pain
Skin flushing, redness, or irritation
Confusion, dizziness, drowsiness, or seizures
4. Research. Aromatherapists research essential oils for what your issue is. It is not a “use this blend” from this company situation. We are all different. When you study aromatherapy, you learn how to blend for that person, not a generic illness.
5. Patch test. Make sure the essential oil you are about to use won’t cause a reaction for you. Patch testing is the application of an appropriately diluted essential oil onto a small area of skin to test for a reaction. Do patch tests for all oils you plan on using topically.
6. Safety first.
A. Keep essential oils out of reach of children and pets. Essential oil bottles usually do not have child-resistant safety caps, all should have orifice reducers. Keep up and locked away and out of the sight of children.
B. Label essential oils and blends with the name, date, and strength. Improper labeling is common. DO NOT buy essential oils that do not have the name, Latin name, country of origin, company name, contact information, and dilution or other ingredients on the label. A pure essential oil should only contain that oil. Otherwise, it is a blend.
C. Don’t use undiluted essential oils on the skin, or on mucous membranes. Make sure oils are properly diluted.
D. Consider doing a patch test to look for allergies and sensitivities before putting larger amounts on the skin.
E. Avoid ingesting essential oils.
