Essential oils can make your commute more profitable, productive, and pleasant. In part 1 of this article, I shared about how they can help with productive thinking time, creative time, dealing with less agreeable people, fellow commuters who are coughing and sneezing, as well as helping you deal with traffic problems or relax and unwind on the commute home. Part 1 also gives suggestions for specific essential oils for these purposes, so how specifically can you use them?
1. Inhale directly from the bottle.
Some people like to carry the original 5 millimeter or 15 millimeter bottles, and other people like to pour part of the oil into small 5/8 dram bottles.
2. Inhale from an inhaler.
You will find different sorts of inhalers online. Each comes with its own wick onto which you pour several drops of the essential oil of your choice.
3. Wear as a cologne or perfume.
When you are using a therapeutic grade of essential oil, you could even be getting health benefits for body and mind.
4. Put a drop on the corner of your handkerchief.
This in much less conspicuous than getting out an oil bottle or an inhaler in the presence of others.
5. Put on the soles of your feet before leaving home in the morning.
Why? Because if you put on certain immune-building blends of essential oils, you have more protection from the coughs, colds, and flu from others. The latest research shows that essential oils, when put on the soles of the feet, go into the blood stream within 3 seconds and to the cells of the entire body within 20 minutes.
6. Add to your car's air filtration system.
Some people use the small diffusers designed especially for cars, and other people have it added to the filter of their car's filtration system.
7. Add a drop to your water bottle.
This assumes that (a) you do not re-use your plastic water bottles, (b) that you are using only therapeutic grade essential oils, and (c) that you have consulted the Essential Oils Desk Reference regarding the oils you have chosen.
Whether you commute by yourself or with others, I hope that these tips will help to make your commute more pleasant, productive, and profitable.

I encourage people to use only therapeutic grade essential oils and to consult the Essential Oils Desk Reference for their selection of oils and all aspects of usage and safety. Why? So people can experience the biggest possible benefits. Huge benefits may not be found in essential oils that contain synthetic compounds or remnants from less-than-optimal harvesting and distillation practices.
