How to Use Essential Oils

Aromatherapy is a very broad realm in which for the beginner, and experienced user, it can be very easy to become confused and even misguided with respect to product choices and their use.

Sina wants to help ensure that whether you are a first-time or seasoned user of essential oils that you incorporate aromatherapy safely and effectively into your daily life, and that of your family. That’s why we’ve developed the How to Use Essential Oils “library”, a searchable article database of helpful information on choosing and using essential oils. Just click on the “How to Use Essential Oils” hyperlink above or on the navigation tab at the top of our home page (www.sinaaromatherapeutics.com) to access information on different aromatherapy product formats and specific formats for different remedies.

Before introducing the pages, however, we want to provide you with one caveat: The discussions and advice that follows are specific to prediluted, ready-to-use, professionally manufactured aromatherapy blended essential oils products. There are many potential advantages to the above over the use of single essential oils and do- it-yourself (DIY) aromatherapy that include convenience, effectiveness and safety. At the same time, an informed and thus, confident ready-to-use aromatherapy user will be better able to optimize the benefits of usage. Thus, Sina’s decision to provide you with the guidelines presented below.

The article data base is, and will be, constantly evolving. Here’s what you can look to in the near future:

Essential Oils Product Formats

This section contains articles that help you understand the different technologies used to deliver the benefits of essential oils from aromatherapy body patches to aromatherapy roll-ons and aromatherapy vaporizing jars. And soon, we will be adding discussions for aromatherapy pump sprays and creams. Keep in mind, that all of our discussions focus on prediluted, ready-to-use aromatherapy formats.

The discussion of each essential oils' delivery format addresses:

  • particular benefits of the method
  • different product formats
  • how each method works
  • how to use the method

There is also discussion of, and helpful tips on, the use and application of an essential oils delivery method for specific remedies (e.g., allergies and sinus congestion, headache, sleep, stress and snoring).

General Tips on How to Use Essential Oils

Coming soon are articles which will address what to look for in purchasing different aromatherapy delivery formats and the importance of those factors in your purchase decision.

As well, an expanded section will present information which will help you understand more fully the differences between ready-to-use and DIY aromatherapy formats (our position, of course, is that for reasons of safety and efficacy, we come firmly down on the side of “ready-to-use”). There will also be discussions on the differences and relative benefits of inhalation, topical application and massage. We hope that this will be helpful guidance in choosing a method that is optimum for you and the particular ailment that you wish to address.  

Another section will present discussions and helpful tips relating to the use of essential oils by age and condition/situation. For instance, look for articles relating to usage of essential oils by children, during pregnancy, with allergies, with scent and perfume sensitivity, with medications, with specific medical conditions, and of course in specific situations such as at work, while traveling (and a specific situation involving air travel), and also in both warm and cold climates.

And last, there will be a section addressing issues of quality, ingredients and packaging. Our goal is to provide you with base-line information to enable you to make informed choices among suppliers and the use and care for essential oils. Look for articles that describe and explain the importance of Health Canada Natural Product Numbers (NPNs) and others that address issues of essential oils’ adulteration and purity; safety issues associated with different containers in which essential oils can be packaged (including issues of UV protection, container integrity, and possibility for contamination); and care and storage of your essential oils.     

Glossary of Key Aromatherapy Terms

Every industry has its own vocabulary and aromatherapy is no different. We want you to understand and be conversant with those key terms that will enable you to make more informed choices relating to your use of aromatherapy. This section will contain approximately 100 terms that we think are important to your successful use of aromatherapy.
