For those of you interested in improving your life through the use and application of essential oils, below are some tips for applying those topically to the skin, as well as how to get the most out of each application.
Applying essential oils to the skin is one of the most common ways people administer it. The reason that this works is that human skin is porous and permeable. The active ingredients in an essential oil can be absorbed through the skin in order to help combat an issue.
One way to increase the effectiveness of topically applied essential oils is to increase the skin’s ability to absorb. One way to do this is to massage the area you plan on applying the oil on. This usually helps to increase blood flow to the area, which will help your body absorb more oil at a faster rate. Applying heat to the skin can also increase circulation and make skin more absorptive. Places with greater concentrations of sweat glands and hair follicles also make prime sites for application, as the skin generally absorbs more in locations like the head, palms, and armpits.
