If you’re new to this, it is recommended to start light and work your way up. Very light doses begin at 1-2 drops, and this can be especially useful for light mood shifts and creative thought. If you’re looking for help with sleep, 8-10 drops is usually a nice starting point. Once you become familiar with using it, you will gain a better idea of your dosages.
It can be a good idea to regulate how often you’re taking it. You may only need to take it every few days when needed or desired. If you’re using it more regularly, such as a daily tool, it is still beneficial to take a break every few days so that your body doesn’t habituate to it too much.
There are a number of variables that will determine the degree of effect you experience. Generally, if you have a good underlying foundation of health, then you will tend to need less for desired effects- the body is a clearer vessel to receive and assimilate the benefits. On the other hand, if your organs and digestive system have a degree of sluggishness, from such things as: eating too many fatty foods, generally overeating, lack of exercise, insufficient hydration, excess coffee and/or alcohol, then you may end up requiring higher dosages for desired effects.
HOW TO USE THE PRODUCTS
The primary method for administration of these products is via ingestion.
Shake bottle well before decanting. Insert desired number of drops on top of a small glass of water or the like, and down the hatch. Be sure to retrieve any that may have stuck to the side of the cup. You can of course also add it to food, or swallow directly if you know how much to take. If taken on an empty stomach, it can generally take 60-90 minutes to take effect, after which effects are quite consistent for 4-5 hours. It may take a little longer to commence if taken straight after a meal.
The products are also very effective via skin, such as rubbing the oil directly into the skin, and adding some to your hot bath.
