How and When can I use Elevation Essential Oil?
Elevation can only be used topically and aromatically.
It is perfect to use in the morning when you first wake up to help promote self worth and empowerment.
And also helps to lessen feelings of restlessness. Just add 3-4 drops of elevation on its own or with your favourite oils to the diffuser right after you wake up.
If you have kids, Elevation is also a great oil to use to start their day.
Add 3-4 drops to the diffuser in the morning before the kids wake up to create a positive and energised environment
Elevation can also be used topically to quickly elevate mood and promote a revitalizing aroma. Just rub over heart wrists or temples.
Remember to use a carrier oil if you have experienced sensitivity.
Adding 1-2 drops to a warm bath is also an amazing way to use this oil to end the day. It helps to promote a restful uplifting experience after a long day.
You can also create a refreshing and uplifting room spray by adding 10 to 15 drops to a 200ml spray bottle and then top up with distilled water. Be sure to shake well before each use as oils and water do not mix.
Elevation can also help when someone is experiencing grief. Apply to chest and pulse points.
When feeling overwhelmed you can apply under the nose, ears and back of the neck to help feel more at ease.
With topical use apply with caution. Elevation is considered to be a photosensitive oil. Photosensitive oils are oils that don’t react well when exposed to sunlight and UV rays. These tend to mainly be the citrus oils or blends that contain the citrus oils.
Some essential oils contain furocoumarins, a special class of constituent that can cause photosensitisation of the skin.
The most commonly found furocoumarins in essential oils are bergapten and oxypeucedanin. The chemical structure of these molecules (and their metabolites) allows them to form cross-links with skin cell DNA, in turn making the skin especially susceptible to UV radiation.
When exposed to direct sunlight after topical application of a photosensitive oil, the skin may become temporarily darkly pigmented, red, or irritated.
Photosensitivity applies to the topical use of essential oils only and do not pose the same risks when used internally. When using a photosensitive essential oil topically, avoidance of sunlight is recommended for up to 12 hours after use.
As always with using essential oils exercise caution when applying topically. Avoid contact eyes, inner ears and other sensitive areas.
Although rare some oils can cause skin irritation to those with sensitive skin. Many people can use this blend with no issue but precaution is always recommended.
When using oils for the first time apply a small amount to see if your skin reacts. If any irritation occurs you can dilute the oils a little with some Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO) before applying FCO is a carrier oil used to dilute stronger oils to lessen sensitivity when applying topically.
FCO is also great for the skin leaving it feeling silky smooth.
FCO will always remain liquid unlike the thick, unrefined coconut oil you can find at grocery stores and it won’t clog your pores.
Some other great carrier oils are sweet almond oil, jojoba oil and grapeseed oil
Why I choose to support my Family with Natural Products over Chemical based Products
As a chemical scientist I have always been interested in how chemicals affect our body and what side effects or responses our body can have when heavy metals and toxic chemicals are at play.
I know now the detrimental effects of harsh chemicals on the body including cancer, auto-immune, respiratory issues, immune issues, skin problems, gut problems and the list goes on.
For this reason I am prepared to do whatever it takes to stay clear of chemical based products.
The use of dangerous artificial chemicals such as fragrances to make you or your house smell nice ‘boggles me’.
Switch the candles and air fresheners for diffusers to create a safe and clean environment for your family.
Going back to nature is what we all need to do. Everything we need is already available to us.
So our house is complete with pure, third party, tested, transparent essential oils, along with other plant based blends to support energy, vitality, help us feel good, uplift mood and support low and high feelings.
Why I choose doTERRA for my Essential Oils
There are so many different brands of essential oils that you can purchase in the world today, however many, as high as 95% of essential oils on the market are altered in some way.
If we choose an essential oil that has been altered or tampered with, it can actually affect the beneficial properties of the oil.
For this reason the essential oil will not do what we want it to do in our body.
You are sacrificing so much when you choose a cheap, inferior brand that alters its pure oil for profit. As you can see, it is so essential that you choose a pure essential oil.
Personally I use doTERRA essential oils. as already discussed for good reason.
They are one of the top quality brands worldwide. Their oils are unadulterated, meaning they are 100% pure essential oils (in true terms) and are also tested by third parties.
The testing process is very transparent and you can even check up on every single essential oil that you purchase for the makeup and composition. You can do this by going to the Source to You website.

This process gives customers confidence and reassurance that doTERRA is providing us with top quality products which are so essential for good health.
