What if I want to use more than one oil at once?

You can mix singles, and you can mix a blend with a single, but it is a "rule" not to mix blends with other blends. Mixing them together is going to change the frequency of the oil and it may not have the same results as they would if you did them individually. It is, however, okay to layer them. The oils absorb into the skin rapidly so you can put an oil on top of another oil. Some like to wait a few minutes in between or apply it to another part of the body

How many drops are in a 5ml and 15ml bottle?

Around 100 in a 5ml and 300 in a 15ml, depending on the viscosity of the oil.

Can I take too much or over apply?

These oils are very potent and strong (one drop of peppermint is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea), so you don't have to use a lot. If you spill a lot of oil on your body, don't worry - there are no negative side effects.

I got a new bottle of oil and it smells different than previously, is that okay?

Yes, Young Living focuses on the therapeutic constituents, not the smell, so each batch is not always going to smell the same. You can be sure that it still has the same benefits as your previous bottle.

Is it okay to put citrus oils in plastic/styrofoam?

Citrus oils eat plastic, so be careful to use glass, ceramic, or stainless steel if you're putting oil in your beverages.

I HATE the way this oil smells, why?

When you LOVE or HATE the way an oil smells, that can be an indication that your body needs it.

I am allergic to the plant; does that mean I will be allergic to the oil too?

Not necessarily. Plant allergies are to the protein of the plant: the leaf, the seed, the pollen, etc. None of that is present in the essential oil. Always do your own research and consult your doctor first.

I think I'm allergic because I have a rash.

There is a chance that all you're having is an allergic reaction to the acids in your body, and the oils are going in and hitting those acids and creating a spontaneous combustion (micro combustion) that creates an outburst on the skin. Please consult your doctor to be sure, though.

What can essential oils be used for?

Essential oils can be used in many ways. They may assist with elevating mood, fighting germs/bacteria/viruses, aiding sleep, helping and supporting emotions, boosting the immune system, aiding digestion, settling restless children at bed time, enhancing general health, cleaning and to freshen the home, increasing mental alertness and helping with cuts, burns and headaches.

Why do you need different types of essential oils?

Why not just use just one or two oils? Essential oils have many benefits, so no matter which ones you choose, it’s possible to experience some of those natural properties. However, depending on the particular plant that an essential oil is from, each oil has its own unique strengths when used with the human body. For example, marjoram oil is wonderful for relaxing muscles, wintergreen is more effective for bones, and cypress can be used for circulation.
