How to Use Essential Oils Aromatically or Topically (on the Skin)


The sense of smell is a tool that can elicit powerful physiological, mental, and emotional responses. Essential oils are quickly absorbed by smell receptors, which are directly linked to the limbic system, the part of your brain that stores memories and emotions. Some essential oils induce uplifting or invigorating effects, while others are more calming.

Diffusing is one of the simplest ways to use essential oils aromatically. You can use an essential oil diffuser if you’d like, but using essential oils aromatically does not require special diffusing devices. Instead, you can achieve the same health benefits by simply placing a few drops of essential oil in the palm of your hand, cupping it around your nose, and breathing deeply.

You can apply the oil to a cotton pad and leave it on your nightstand, kitchen countertop, car, or bathroom.

Mix and dilute the oil and water using a bottle and spray it over furniture, linens, and closet. You may also spray some essential oils on household surfaces for cleaning purposes.

Use essential oils in your laundry room when washing and drying your clothing or bedding.


One of the best ways to experience the benefits of essential oils is topical use (on the skin), as essential oils penetrate the skin for localized benefits. This is why TC works to create therapeutic and potent essential oils that are powerful enough to promote healthy-looking skin yet gentle enough to use daily.
