Direct inhalation is the easiest way to activate healing with essential oils. Essential oils are uniquely suited to cross the blood-brain barrier. They are rapidly absorbed and interact with brain receptors in the central nervous system to support healing. Reprogramming thought and emotion patterns is about to get easier.
How to use:
Place 1-2 drops of essential oil in the palm of your hands
Rub hands together
Cup hands over mouth and nose without touching face
1-2 drops may also be placed on a cotton ball and put in pillowcase to inhale while sleeping.
*Inhale before and after your healing practices. To reinforce healing, inhale throughout the day as needed.
A soothing hot bath combined with essential oils opens up the body and mind to healing by reducing physical tension, stress, and anxiety. As you relax in an essential oil bath, your mind and body will more easily release repressed emotion and toxic energy to assist your healing process.
How to use:
Get an empty glass jar
Add 6-8 drops of essential oil and 2 tablespoons of Epsom or sea salts
Replace lid and shake well to mix
Pour into bath or foot bath, and soak
Soak for at least 10 minutes
The salt acts as an emulsifier allowing the essential oil to disperse evenly into the water.
*Listen to your daily scripts and affirmations while bathing.
Topical application allows you to target specific areas of the body, such as the tapping points taught in the Healing Plan. When you apply oils to the tapping points or bottom of the feet, you access reflexology and acupressure points for the whole body. Oil travels through pores, directly enters the bloodstream, and circulates through the whole body in a matter of minutes. It also activates your energy meridian system to release repressed emotion and negative thought patterns.
How to use:
Place 1-2 drops of essential oil on bottom of feet or back of neck
For general application or for use with children and the elderly, dilute 10 drops of essential oil in 10 ml of carrier oil, such as grapeseed, avocado, or jojoba.
*Before watching a healing session, put 1-2 drops of essential oil in the palm of one hand. Dip fingertips into the blend and rub onto the fingertips of the other hand. You may also apply directly to tapping points on the body.
Diffusing. Enjoy all the same benefits as with inhalation. Diffusing extends the benefits to the whole household, while also cleaning and purifying the air with a subtle non-toxic scent.
How to use:
Add 12-15 drops of essential oil to diffuser
Diffuse for 15 minutes every 2 hours
*Diffuse during healing sessions—both while doing your daily and weekly practices and techniques, and throughout the day to reinforce your healing.
Massage. Activate deep healing from head to toe by targeting specific points of the body. By diluting with a carrier oil you can extend application to a larger area, while staying within the recommended drops. Take your Carol Tuttle Healing Oil blend to your next massage visit. As you relax into your massage, you will be able to access the benefits of the Healing Plan at a subconscious level.
How to Use:
Get 1 oz. of carrier oil, such as grapeseed, avocado, or jojoba
Mix 16 drops of essential oil in carrier oil
Massage into skin as desired
Do a self-massage of legs, feet, and shoulders. Or invite your massage therapist to use during your massage.
Do a healing session from your healing plan before each massage in order to activate the body’s healing memory.
