The Best Method of Applying Essential Oils

by Jodi Cohen

I bet it doesn’t surprise to learn that the method of application can impact the effectiveness of the oil.  The faster it gets into our system, the faster we often feel the benefits. But it might surprise you to know that the ears are a highly effective channel of application. Learn how to apply Essential Oils to the most effective place on our bodies.


How to Apply Essential Oils

Here’s why.  The ears contain physical and emotional reflexology points corresponding to all of the meridians, internal organs, and the musculoskeletal system.

Just as you often find repeating geometrical patterns in nature, the ears serve as a microcosm of the body.  If you look closely, you can identify an upside-down human fetus in the ear, with the earlobe representing the head.  There are over 200 acupuncture points on the ear correspond to the body parts of the fetus shape.

Almost every organ and tissue has corresponding reflexive point on the ear.

Ear reflexology, acupuncture and acupressure techniques stimulate these points on the ear which often stimulates the corresponding organs and systems.

It is believed that the entire body can be effectively treated by applying stimulation on the surface of the ear.

In addition to the physical map of the ear, there is also an emotional map that corresponds to emotional and mental health challenges.  So much so, that we recommend applying all of the Emotion Balance™ blends to the ear along with the corresponding organ of the body.  To better identify the specific ear point, you can consult this chart.

I have come to believe that layering of modalities, such as the combination of essential oils and ear reflexology, optimizes the benefit of both.

Further, the permeability of the skin allows the oils to absorb more quickly into the system.  Are highly permeable and absorb essentials oil faster than other parts of the body.


How to Apply Essential Oils to the Ears

Applying mild pressure to the reflexology points aids in removing emotional and physical blocks and can help restore balance to the body.

In addition to targeting a specific reflex point, you can rub the entire ear to reduce pain, lower blood pressure, balance hormones and release endorphins into your system.

Just use your thumb and index fingers to gently massage your ear lobes in small circles.

Your ear lobes are energetically linked to your brain.  When the right ear lobe is massaged it allows the left brain and pituitary gland to become stimulated.  When the left ear lobe is massaged it allows the right brain and pineal gland to become stimulated, giving you a whole brain experience.

Rubbing your ears with essential oils a few times a day for as little as 1 minute is an easy way to return your body to balance.
