TLC 100% Pure Premium Essential Oils

Essential oils vary in their characteristics. Each person is different in how they may respond to using them. Although it is unusual for improper use, it is important to have an understanding of the characteristics of the various oils and any necessary precautions.

How do I use TLC Essential Oils?

TLC Essential Oils may be used in three different ways. They may be applied to the skin topically, added to a dispersant and added to a bath or inhaled. There are many different kinds of application methods. For example, you can apply essential oils topically using compresses, sprays, baths, or massaging them into the skin.

How do I choose an application method?

The application method chosen depends on the desired effect and the essential oil selected.
Wound care most often involves topical applications.
Mood effects might be addressed by either inhalation or topical application. For fast action, inhalation might be preferred.
Baths involve both inhalation and topical absorption.
Note: If you are unsure about which application method to use, consult an experienced aromatherapist.

How can I inhale TLC Essential Oils?

TLC Essential oils can be inhaled using a variety of techniques and devices.

Diffuser: TLC Essential oils may be placed in this device, sometimes with water (be sure to read the directions), and sometimes with heat so they evaporate. Some diffusers have a timer for convenience.
Essential oils should never be directly burned as the chemical structure is dramatically changed with incineration.


Dry Evaporation: Several drops of essential oil are placed on a cotton ball or tissue and allowed to evaporate into the air. If you want an intense dose, sniff the cotton ball. If a milder, more constant exposure is desired, simply keep the cotton ball in your immediate vicinity.


Steam: Drops of TLC Essential Oil are added to a bowl of steaming water, which quickly vaporizes the oil. Place a towel over your head and over the bowl of water with essential oil drop(s) and breathe deeply. This method is very direct and potent—the use of more than 1-2 drops may be overwhelming.
It is important keep the eyes closed when using this method. This is not recommended for children younger than 10 years old. Children 10 and older who use this method of aromatherapy can use swimming goggles to protect their eyes.


Spray: Drops of TLC Essential Oils are placed in a water-based solution, shaken, and sprayed into the air in order to deodorize a room or set a mood. For example, a solution of peppermint oil can be sprayed to stimulate alertness. It is important to shake the bottle before spraying in order to spray the solution and not just water.

How do I apply TLC Essential Oils topically?

TLC Essential oils can be applied to the skin using a variety of techniques. It is recommended that TLC Essential Oils be diluted with a carrier prior to being applied topically, unless treating insect bites and burns. When applying topically to larger areas you will need to dilute the oils with a carrier (see below).

How do I prepare a solution?
If you have one teaspoon (5cc) of carrier, you would add 3 drops of TLC pure premium essential oil. This would make a 3% solution that could be used on a portion of the body. For massage or for application over large areas of the body, a 1% solution (meaning, one drop of essential oil in one teaspoon of carrier) is generally a safe concentration.

What carrier oil should I use?
Common carrier oils include sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, or avocado oil. These oils do not have a strong smell of their own. They should be kept refrigerated until used and should be discarded if they smell rancid. (Oils typically keep about a year if refrigerated.)

What are the techniques?
Compress: The essential oil is diluted in a liquid carrier and applied to a dressing or directly to the affected area. Optional heat or cold can be applied.

Bath: Drops of essential oils are added to bath water immediately before stepping in. This method results in absorption through the skin, as well as inhalation of the volatilized essential oil. Remember, TLC Essential Oils are not water-soluble. They will float on top of the bath and skin passing through the oil will be exposed to full strength essential oil. Bath salts can also be used to disperse essential oils. A relaxing bath base can be made by mixing one part baking soda, two parts Epsom salts, and three parts sea salt. Add six drops of TLC 100% pure premium Lavender Essential Oil to about two tablespoons of this mixture and mix it into bath water just before entering.

Massage: Drops of TLC Essential Oils are added to a natural carrier oil and applied to skin areas with gentle rubbing. As noted earlier, massage blends should not exceed 1% concentration of essential oils (one drop in a teaspoon) for adults.

TLC Essential Oils Storage

Never leave TLC Essential Oils near a heat source as combustion/fire may occur. The safest place to store TLC Essential Oils is in an aromatherapy box or refrigerator. Never leave oils in a place where the sun will shine directly on them. Choose a cool, dark place to keep them safely away from heat and also inquisitive children – safety point number one.
During the summer months, when it is hot, it is a good idea to store your Carrier oils in the fridge as well, since they can be particularly vulnerable. Take TLC Essential Oils and carrier oils out of the fridge 12 hours before you need to use them to allow them to naturally adjust to room temperature. When stored at low temperatures, some carrier oils form fatty particles, which will need to be dissolved again before you can use them. A quick shake of the bottle is all that is needed to ensure that waxy/fatty particles are dissolved back to their normal state.

Basic Skin Test: Place a small amount of carrier oil such as coconut or olive oil, followed by a small amount of the essential oil in the palm of your hand. Use one/two fingers and mix the carrier and the 1-2 drops of an essential oil. Rotate clockwise to warm the oils. Now apply the oil on the inside of the elbow (underside of the forearm), or wrist. After approximately 1 hour, check the area(s) for any type of reaction. Most users will not react to 100% pure premium essential oils and they can be safely applied for a direct powerful effect. They can be effectively used undiluted on burns, insect bites, pimples, and other skin eruptions too. Essential oils are very powerful and are very effective, even when they are applied with a carrier. Carriers are often used during massage therapy to help lubricate larger areas.
*Not recommended for use with Babies/Children Under 10 and people with identified sensitive skin.

Use Care with Eyes, Ears, etc.: Never apply oils directly to the eyes or ear canal. After application, be attentive to things like rubbing the eyes, areas around the eyes, eyelids, handling contact lenses, or touching the interior of one’s nose. The skin is most sensitive and prone to irritation around the genitals and mucous membranes.

Use care when applying essential oils to Children Over the Age of 10: After application, the child should be supervised and areas where oils were applied should be clothed until the oils have been sufficiently absorbed to protect from cross contamination.

Pregnancy: Pregnant women are advised to consult a physician or licensed aromatherapist prior to using essential oils. If there are specific oils that pregnant women should be concerned about, it will be noted on the essential oil bottle.

Critical Health Conditions: Persons with asthma, epilepsy, high blood pressure, or other critical health conditions can benefit from essential oils, but should consult a healthcare or aromatherapy professional when addressing these serious conditions.

A Little Goes a Long Way: There is a reason for the drip hole in top of the essential oil bottles. All TLC Essential Oils are 100% pure premium concentrates. 100% pure premium essential oils are potent and smaller amounts are required.
