Methods of Application



A basic overview of standard aromatherapy techniques.

Diffusing essential oils in an ionic diffuser is highly enjoyable and has many practical benefits for mood and health. A few drops of citrus oil such as Bergamot diffused with water will fill your home with a beautiful and lively scent. How does diffusing essential oils have such amazing effects? The scent alone is impactful as the aromatics from the essential oils enter the bloodstream upon inhalation. But this is just one of the ways essential oils can interact with our bodies to positively affect our being.

Topical application and Ingestion are also pathways for essential oils to directly affect the body. With these methods the essential oil enters through the skin, upper respiratory system, and/or digestive tract before entering the bloodstream, much in the same way as food, supplements and drugs. The essential oil compounds are then sorted and separated for use, filtered out by the kidney and liver, and ultimately excreted through sweat, exhalation, skin respiration and urine.

Topical application is as simple as mixing (aromatizing) 1-3 drops of an essential oil such as Lavender into a teaspoon of lotion or one of Veriditas by Pranarom’s Virgin Plant Oils. The mixture can then be applied to the skin. This kind of aromatherapy is key to unlocking many common uses for essential oils such as skin care, facial care, immunity support and more. Topical application also offers thousands of options for personally formulated body-care products.

Ingestion of essential oils is best experienced through our Pranacaps, a revolutionary line of aromatherapy capsules developed by medical doctors. These certified organic capsules contain essential oils properly blended for maximum results. Try the Pranarom Aromastress Mandarin Capsules, Resistance Oregano Capsules, Immunessence Defense Capsules, and Digestarom Digestive Capsules, following the recommendations on the packaging.

Many Veriditas by Pranarom organic essential oils and Virgin Plant Oils are ingestible; however, one must properly prepare the oils and make sure that are safe for the desired use.

Generally, essential oils are taken in a ratio of 1 drop to 1/2 teaspoon of honey, 1-3 times a day for 5-7 days. After this dosage, a break of 2-4 weeks is recommended to allow the body to respond and achieve homeostasis. Using essential oils internally should not be thought of as a daily supplement; the exception is citrus oils, which may be used ongoing. Always consult with a certified aromatherapist/qualified healthcare practitioner for safety guidelines and discontinue use if irritation occurs.

Diluting & Blending with Essential Oils

The most important skill for DIY aromatherapy products is dilution: a basic understanding of dilution will allow you to follow recipes, make homemade blends, and ensure safety. When diluted, essential oils become less concentrated and more suitable for application without the risk of irritation.

Diluting in aromatherapy involves mixing an essential oil with a carrier oil. Pranarom offers beautiful Virgin Plant Oils that make ideal carriers, including Argan oil, Avocado oil, Borage oil, Evening Primrose oil, Hazlenut oil, Calendula oil, and more. These plant oils have benefits of their own that can enhance the ability of the essential oils. Other carriers include water, alcohols, wax, food, and certain essential oils.

Here is an example:

A recipe calls for a 2% dilution of Peppermint in Jojoba oil.

First, choose how much you want to make. The amount to be made is usually determined by the bottle you will be storing your blend in. Veriditas By Pranarom offers empty 2oz amber glass bottles and 10 ml frosted roller cap bottles, but any glass or steel bottle with a cap will do.

For a single use blend, mix 1 drop essential oil in 1/2 teaspoon of carrier and rub onto the area of concern. This is equivalent to a 1-2% dilution.

For multiple applications, blend 1oz carrier oil with 18 drops essential oil. This is also a 2% dilution (see reference chart below).

A couple important notes: 

For children and areas of sensitive skin, a 0-1% dilution (1-9 drops per ounce of carrier) is recommended. For general use with adults, a 0.5-7% dilution covers most needs safely and effectively (this is 1 to 62 drops in 1oz of carrier oil).

Certain essential oils are very potent and require dilution rates below 2% to avoid irritation. These oils include Oregano, Thyme ct thymol, Cinnamon Bark and Tulsi. Other essential oils, such as Helichrysum and Lavender, are very mild and can be used without a carrier.

* 1 drop will vary in size depending on the essential oil and the orifice reducer cap. The given amounts are estimated based on average drop size.
