What is a pulse point oil?

A pulse point oil is a blend of essential oils that you apply to specific areas of the body, known as pulse points, where blood vessels are closest to the skin and body heat helps to diffuse the oils.

How does it work?

These oils work by leveraging the body's natural heat at pulse points to diffuse the essential oils. The warmth from these areas helps release the aromatic properties of the oils, providing benefits such as relaxation, stress relief or an energy boost, depending on the blend used.

Where do you put pulse point oil?

Areas include the wrists, temples, neck and behind the ears, where the blood vessels are closest to the skin, allowing the oils to be absorbed more efficiently.
