Qn: How will I know the dosage to use for adults, kids or the elderly? Are they the same?
Ans: Dosage varies from person to person. For kids and the elderly, we recommend that you start with a really low dosage, diluted with V-6 (Young Living organic vegetable oil). You can do a skin patch test on the soles of your feet with just 1 drop of the essential oil, diluted with V-6. You can increase the dosage gradually to suit individual's needs.

Qn: What is the difference between humidifier and a diffuser, or oil burner?
Ans:
Cold air diffuser: (Highly recommended)
This proved to be the most effectively way to disperse the oil's thousand of molecules into the air.
A cold air diffuser does not harm the molecules.

- You can create a germ free zone and therapeutic or healing zone by diffusing essential oils.
- This is a wonderful way to add fragrance to the air and it can keep insects at bay.
- This is an excellent way to get healing oils into the respiratory system of family members, especially during the cold and flu season.

Humidifier or Vaporizer: (Not recommended)
Essential oils can dissolve petrochemicals (plastic), adding drops of essential oils directly may cause it to degrade over time.

Aroma lamp, Candles or Burner: (Not recommended)
It is not recommended to use as heat will change the chemical structure of the molecules, which can render the oil therapeutically less benefit and even create toxic compounds.

Qn: How many drops for diffusing?
Ans: Start by placing 10-15 drops of oil. For 50ml of water, I would normally put about 8-10 drops.



Qn : Is there any expiry to the oils? How to keep them?
Ans: There is no expiry date for the oils.
For diluted oils, it is recommended to use them within 6 months.
Make sure you keep your oils out from the sunlight. Tighten after every usage and keep out of reach from children.

Qn: How do I know which oils to use?
One of the wonderful things about Young Living essential oils is that you can LAYER several oils if you like without risk of "overdosing".

Just apply one of the oils first. Wait 2 minutes, and apply the second oil. Wait 2 minutes, and apply another oil. By layering several oils, you are giving your body a far better chance to have the exact molecules that it needs to come to balance. It really doesn't matter whether or not you know which one or ones did the job - the important thing is that the challenge is safely eliminated.

NOTE: Remember that while the symptoms may be the same, the molecules that are needed for balance may differ greatly. That is why I sometimes hear, "The oils don't work for me any more - they used to work great, and now they don't!" The reality is that what your body needs at this moment may be in a totally different oil.

Qn: How Often Can Essential Oils Be Applied?
Ans: As often as you like.

Unlike synthetic drugs that can remain in the body indefinitely, all portions of therapeutic-grade essential oils not immediately used by the body are eliminated within 20 minutes.

Does this mean that the oils are ineffective after 20 minutes? No!

Essential oils are complex substances with hundreds of different chemical components. Our bodies know what they need to come to balance, and they select the components from the oils and eliminate the remaining ones that are not needed at that time.

Balance is the key word because the body is always searching for whatever will bring about balance - homeostasis. Even though one's symptoms may be quite similar from one time to another, the imbalances may be different. Introducing the essential oils often will give the body the chance to choose what it needs at that particular time.

If all the components that the body needs for balance are offered, then the body can quickly balance. However, if a few are missing, it may take a repeating the oils and/or introducing additional ones for the body to have all of the chemical constituents necessary for balance.

This is why I love the French model of aromatherapy which describes layering several oils and/or blends. It is not necessary for us to know what the body needs because the body is quite capable of choosing those things. We need only to make those things available to the body, and the body does the rest. Isn't that simple?

Use your oils whenever you like, and trust that your body will choose whatever portions of each one that it needs at that particular time. You "cannot do it wrong" when using Young Living's therapeutic-grade essential oils.

Qn: You have recommend me a few type of oils. But I am quite confused. As do I mixed all the oils together and apply on them? Any step by step instruction to follow?

Ans: When we apply oils as recommended by the French model of aromatherapy, we wait 2 minutes between oils. The elapsed time gives each one the opportunity to move through the body, offering its array of molecules and balancing whatever it is able to balance. This means that each remains intact with its full range of chemical components - and therapeutic benefits - to offer the body.

Do not blend or mix the oils.
For topical application. 2 minutes in between oils

For diffusing
You can diffuse one oil overnight and rotate with different oils for best results.
We don't recommend to mix as that means we are creating our own blend which may tamper with chemistry of oils.

Qn: Will I get an allergy from using the oils?
Ans: Occasionally, individuals beginning to use quality essential oils will suffer rashes or allergic reactions. This may be due to using an undiluted spice, conifer, or citrus oil, or it may be caused by an interaction of the oil with residues of synthetic, petroleum-based, personal-care products that have leached into the skin.

When using essential oils on a daily basis, it is imperative to avoid personal-care products containing ammonium or hydrocarbon-based chemicals. These include quaternariums. These chemicals can be fatal if ingested, especially benzalkonium chloride, which, unfortunately, is used in many personal-care products on the market.

Chemicals can remain trapped in fatty issues underneath the skin for several months or years until a topical substance like an essential oil starts to move them from their resting place and cause them to come out of the skin in an uncomfortable way. Besides skin irritation, you could experience nausea, headaches, and other slight temporary effects.

It is all about what chemicals were used, how much, how long, and perhaps the level of toxicity in your body.

Essential oils have been known to digest toxic substances, and so when they come in contact with chemical residue on the skin, the oils start to work against them.

The user may mistakenly assume that the threat of an interaction between oils and synthetic cosmetics used months before is small. However, a case of dermatitis is always a possibility.

Essential oils do not cause skin problems, rashes, or eruptions on the skin, but they may only indirectly as they go after the chemicals. Do not make the mistake of blaming the essential oils. Just be glad this chemical residue is coming out of your body.

You can always reduce the amount of oil you are using or stop the use of any oil for a couple of days and then start again slowly. You can also use V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex, other vegetable or massage oils, or natural creams to dilute the oils.

Qn: How long will the parcel arrive?
