Essential Oils can be used in three ways ...
Essential oils are amazingly versatile. One oil can be used for many different purposes and also in up to three different ways.
When you buy your doTERRA essential oils, the bottle will tell you how you can use that specific oil. Many of our oils can be used in all three ways!
A -- Aromatically: You can inhale a fine mist of the oil by using a diffuser or simply smell the oil by opening the bottle or put a couple drops on your hands and cup them over your nose and mouth and inhale. This can be a powerful way to affect memory, hormones and emotions. This also can be a quick and effective way to reach the sinuses, larynx, bronchial tubes and lungs.
T -- Topically: Many oils can be applied directly to the skin; some can be applied "neat" with no dilution, but I prefer to dilute all oils with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil. You can apply an oil directly to an area of concern where you are experiencing discomfort (DigestZen over your tummy or Deep Blue on your knee). You can also apply it to reflexology points on your feet, behind your ears or on your wrists for quick absorption . One to four drops is usually adequate. Oils should always be diluted when used on babies or small children.
Topical use also includes these:
I -- Internally: Only doTERRA oils should be taken internally. Oils that have been deemed GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA will have a supplement label on them, and can be consumed. My favorites:

How three great oils can be used all three ways...
Here's a neat example -- the Super Three -- Lemon, Lavender & Peppermint (LLP in oily lingo) -- can be used in all three ways...
Aromatically: I diffuse 2 drops of each -- Lemon, Lavender & Peppermint to clear the air and open and protect my airway... and smells great!!
Topically: I make an LLP blend with fractionated coconut oil. I apply this morning and evening over my cheeks and nose.
Internally: And I make my own capsules by placing 2-3 drops each of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint in a veggie cap. I take these morning and night seasonally.
