Typically, essential oils can be used aromatically, topically (applied onto the skin), or consuming internally. However, due to the nature of Dr MySalyanie’s 100% PURE essential oil formula, it is not advised to be consumed internally via ingestion. It’s always best to use essential oils in diluted forms if you are a beginner to avoid any adverse side effects. The concentration can always be increased once you are comfortable with using essential oils.


This method of using essential oil relies on the sense of smell whereby it helps you experience the aroma of the oil. Some ways to use Dr MySalyanie essential oils aromatically are:

  • Diffusing aroma through the air using a diffuser or other devices. Refer to Diffusers…Which Should I Choose
  • Mix 2 drops of oil with 1L of water in a spray bottle and mist the mixture onto furniture, bedding, and the surrounding air.
  • Through dry evaporation by allow essential oil to evaporate from cotton balls/ fabric. Add 2-3 drops to a cotton ball and leave it in different parts of the house/ car/ bags. The aroma will evaporate off the surface of the cotton and disperse throughout the space.
  • To clear sinuses or blocked nose, fill a bowl with steaming hot water and add 5-6 drops of essential oil into the bowl. Lean over the bowl, so the face is directly above the water. Cover the head with a towel, and breathe through the nose.


This method allows the essential oil to be absorbed through the skin at the area the oil is applied.  A few suggestions on how to use Dr MySalyanie's essential oils topically are:

  • Massage diluted essential oil onto the body.
  • Create your own roll-on by mixing 6-10 drops of Dr MySalyanie 100% PURE essential oil with 1oz of carrier oil such as coconut carrier oil. Roll on oil onto the affected area.
  • Mix 2-3 drops with moisturizer and apply to the skin.
  • Mix 6-10 drops with vegetable oil and apply to desired skin areas.
  • Add 6-10 drops to a warm bath.
  • Fill a bowl with warm/cold water then add 6-10 drops of essential oil. Soak a cloth in the water mixture and apply the cloth onto the required skin area/body part.

Ensure to avoid applying these oils directly to the eyes, around the eye area, too close to the lips, nostrils, or inner ears as well as on cuts, scabs, or injured skin/post-operation scars.
