Application Suggestions (See Essential Oil Usage for more information and a dilution chart.)
Topical: Dilute with a carrier oil and apply over the heart, on the neck or temples. This also works well in a roll-on applicator with the carrier oil of your choice. Maximum dermal use level is 3.5% due to potential skin irritation issues with Ylang Ylang.
SPRAY: Simply Calming makes a wonderful spray. To make a spray, simply decide on the appropriate dilution ratio, add the number of drops to the spray bottle, and then fill with the carrier oil of your choice. For example, for 3% Simply Calming in a 1oz bottle, put 30 drops Simply Calming blend in the bottle then fill with carrier oil. We offer cap labels with "Simply Calming" printed on them if you'd like to get a couple to identify the bottle.
1. I absolutely love Simply Calming. It is my favorite essential oil blend for helping with anxiety and sleep issues, even depression. I have tried other blends, but this is the one for me. A little pricier than some of the other blends, but worth every penny. I will never be without it. It is in my purse at all times. And the smell is amazing. - Dianne
2. Of all the oil blends we have tried, Simply Calming remains the absolute best for relieving depressive thoughts, sadness, and anxiety almost immediately for my 16-year-old daughter battling medical issues and chronic pain. It works so well for emotional struggles. When I see a hint of sadness on her face I will get Simply Calming on her right away at the base of her neck. Now whenever she's headed out to attend any function, I make sure we put it on before she leaves and that she also has some in her purse! For the toughest times of crying at night it may not relieve it totally, but it definitely helps, and within at least 20 minutes she's much better than she would have been without Simply Calming. Thank you so much for this wonderful blend! - Katy
Avoid contact with the eyes and other sensitive areas. Essential oils are both lipophilic and hydrophobic. Lipophilic means they are attracted to fat— like the membranes of your eyes and skin. They are also hydrophobic, meaning they do not like water. Flushing with water will only send the essential oil back to the eye's membranes. Applying a carrier oil will create another fat for the essential oil to be attracted to other than the membranes of the eyes or skin. Tisserand suggests: "With essential oils, fatty oil has been suggested as an appropriate first aid treatment, though the advantage of saline [eyewash] is that the eyes can be continually flushed, and this is less easy with fatty oil." We’ve not known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your health care provider.
