How to Choose an Oil for the Hand Technique:
The AromaTouch® Hand Technique is not only a quick and convenient “AromaTouch On-The-Go,” but you can also choose any oil to use for the experience. If you know someone that could use a pick-me-up in the middle of the day, you can use Citrus Bliss® or Wild Orange. Use Lavender or doTERRA Serenity® in the Hand Technique for special one-on-one time with each of your kids before bedtime. You can also blend Spearmint and doTERRA Balance® to create a relaxed environment at work. The sky is the limit!
So how do you choose the right oil or blend for the person you are working with? To make it easy, we have created oil categories (found as a download below) to help you make an educated decision on which oil to use in each situation. Whether you are trying to make an oil blend or simply choose an oil, these oil categories are a great starting point for your AromaTouch Hand Technique experience.
The AromaTouch Hand Technique only takes 1–3 drops of oil applied to each hand to have an amazing oil experience. For each blend suggestion, you will need a sample vial . Put 25 drops of Fractionated Coconut Oil in the sample vial and then add the oil that you would like to use for the Hand Technique. This will help the oils blend well and readily absorb into the skin. After completing this step, apply 1–3 drops of the blend for the Hand Technique you are performing.

Fun Facts About Aroma:
• Your body contains far more receptors associated with smell (over 1,000) than it does for any other sense.
• There is a direct connection between your nose and your brain’s emotional control center: the limbic system.
• The limbic system controls our emotions, mood, and memory. This is why the “aroma” of the AromaTouch Technique is so important.
