On my feet right?
WRONG! Unfortunately, this is said alot with different companies. But the truth is he palms of your hands and soles of your feet have the thickest skin and therefore absorb the oils slower and the least amount. You will have better results if using the oils over the area of concern directly. Essential oils are lipophilic and are fat soluble so they penetrate the skin easily and are taken up into the bloodstream. The thinner the skin the quicker the oil uptake. Mucous membranes are more sensitive and uptake oils quicker, proceed use with caution. There are multiple benefits of using essential oils and carrier oils on the skin:
- Can nourish the skin while addressing other areas of concern below
- Easy to use daily
- Works well for local inflammation and pain.
