We are a unique essential oil company in that we are committed to making our products accessible, easy-to-use and to encourage responsible, proper applications. It is our belief that essential oils are beneficial to everyone. Yet, we strongly encourage you to make an informed decision for yourself on how best to use our products in your life. There are many ways to use essential oils and each oil is better suited for certain applications especially when considering the goal you are trying to reach. Please educate yourself on the proper uses of essential oils and follow all markings and directions on our essential oils.
Add 3-5 drops or more of essential oil per 100 mL of water to a PURELY™ diffuser. Diffusing is a simple and effective way to use essential oils. Oils are dispersed in a micro-fine vapor, allowing them to remain suspended in the air for extended periods of time. The diffuser disperses the oils without heating them so they retain their therapeutic benefits. When inhaled, the oils are easily absorbed through the lungs. Depending on the oil used, diffusing can cleanse the air of odor, calm overactive children, and support respiration.
Perhaps even more common than inhalation, topical application is the preferred method of use for many essential oils. However, MOST essential oils require significant dilution as they can cause skin irritation. Be sure to test for sensitivity. To use with a carrier oil please see the dilution table on page 7.
Add a couple drops of essential oil to a steamy cup of water and inhale for a method of introducing warm, moist air into the lungs via the nose and throat for therapeutic benefit. This moist air can alleviate difficult breathing and inflammation as well as increase circulation and help prevent excessive drying of mucus membranes.
Add 5-10 drops of essential oil to 1 ounce carrier oil. Add this blend to your running bath water and mix well before getting into the tub.
Oral consumption of oils is a personal choice, and we cannot make that decision for you. God gave us plants for medicinal uses, and the benefits of plant oils are amazing, however you choose to use them. Depending on what you are treating, topical application or inhalation may be more effective. We do understand that some individuals may have some reservations about the ingesting of oils, and we recommend seeking the advice of a medical professional. Educating yourself on the proper ways to safely use essential oils is very important. Always be sure to follow the directions on the labels for safe methods of use. Many people do use oils in this way while others recommend using oils topically or by inhalation.

We at PURELY™ have been asked to address our stance on the ingestion of our essential oils. Many people do use oils in this way while others recommend to only use oils topically or by inhalation. Understanding essential oils and their methods of use can be quite confusing when you begin reading books and articles, and we believe that it is important to know your oils and how to safely use them.
PURELY™ takes great pride in our Simply Pure™ promise. Our essential oils are tested to ensure their purity and that they are of the highest grade which is necessary for therapeutic uses. Although you can purchase oils from health food stores, there is no guarantee that the oils you are purchasing do not have toxic or synthetic chemicals added. If you are unsure about an oil you are using — even if labeled as pure — please do not use it.
Humans have consumed plants for centuries. On a daily basis, we all consume oils from foods that are flavored with natural flavorings. The book The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils by Kurt Schnaubelt, Ph.D., covers how our bodies process essential oils. He also explains how first-time oil users should begin with one drop of an oil, such as lemon, which begins detoxifying your body of xenobiotics (toxic chemicals): “The reader will find that basic information and a dose of common sense are a perfect foundation to safely explore the many uses of essential oils. This is not to say that there will never be an unpleasant experience. An oil might be irritating or more stimulating than expected… Compared to the hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by the wrongful application of conventional medicines and the hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by known side effects of conventional drugs, the journeys to explore essential oils are innocent and utterly harmless.” (Schnaubelt 74).
