Greetings Oil Enthusiasts,
Super News >>> A number of the Starter Kits are on sale for $10 off through August 13. If you're on the fence about getting a kit now is the time to talk to me about it.
In other news today is the start of the 2015 Young Living International Convention in Texas! With convention comes new product launches so I can't wait to see what's coming out after convention!!!
This month we're going to talk briefly about carrier oils! What are they and how do we use them?! So here we go...A carrier oil is a vegetable oil such as coconut oil or grapeseed oil that can be used to dilute EO. YL V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex is an excellent carrier oil for all applications. Carrier oils ensure that EOs applied topically are comfortable. Dilution with a carrier oil does not dilute the effect of the EO, and prevents waste due to excessive application. Vegetable shortening, butter, margarine or petroleum derivatives (petrolatum jelly) should never be used as carrier oils. Some consumers choose to avoid olive oil as a carrier oil because of its strong aroma and thick viscosity. In our house we use oils neat (straight), with coconut oil, aloe, or safflower oil.
Can these oils be used on children? Many EOs are appropriate for use with children, and they should be diluted prior to use. Some YL products are pre-diluted with carrier oil as indicated on product label and are intended for direct application on children. Children generally respond well to EO, and use of a carrier oil is recommended. One-2 drops of EO such as SleepyIze, RutaVala, Gentle Baby and Peace & Calming may be diluted in carrier oil and applied to the bottom of the feet.
