How Do I Use Essential Oils In Montana?
If you’re a beginner to essential oils, in Montana there are three primary ways essential oils enter the body: applied to the skin, inhaled, or ingested. When choosing the right method to use essential oils, always keep in mind the desired result you are wanting and then determine the best application for use.
Essential oils can enter the body by being applied to the skin. This method can vary from using a compress, gargling, bath or even massage. It requires several drops of essential oils to be used topically in some manner. It is important to note that most essential oils should not be applied directly to the skin without being diluted.
Inhalation methods vary from steam, spray, dry evaporation, or diffusion. While people inhale and diffuse essential oils for a variety of reasons, it has been shown that inhalation is most effective and best suited to treat a variety of respiratory complaints. Using an atomizing essential oil diffuser is the most highly recommended inhalation method.
Although, ingestion of essential oils has had much controversy in Montana, I suggest you do the proper research yourself and use safe practices. Cases of death, organ failure and hospitalization in the history of aromatherapy have been caused by ingesting essential oils. Therefore, ask the right people the right question. Is it safe?
Montana, HELENA – Governor Steve Bullock announced today $459,638 in grants to help businesses in eleven Montana communities create 46 new jobs and plan for future expansions.
“Montana’s economy is strong and we are seeing great opportunities for businesses to grow and expand all across the state,” said Governor Bullock. “Continued investments into our growing economy open the door for businesses in communities across Montana to create more jobs and take our economy to new heights.”
The funds are being awarded through the Big Sky Economic Development Trust Fund (BSTF) and Primary Sector Workforce Training Grant (WTG) programs.
Great Falls is one of the 11 communities where BSTF funds are growing the economy through area businesses.
With an $112,500 grant awarded through Cascade County, Anderson Steel Supply, Inc. will be able to upgrade its equipment to increase production capacity by 65 percent, which will create 15 new high paid jobs. Anderson Steel fabricates complex structural steel and heavy built-up steel components for the non-residential construction industry.
“At Anderson Steel, we have a vision to build a sustainable long-term business for years to come,” said Vice President of Operations Bob Reiman. “The Big Sky Trust Fund grant allowed us to compete in a global market rather than just a local market through purchasing advanced metal fabrication technology.”
Reiman said the company’s expansion would have a ripple effect into the economy.
“This grant not only benefits Anderson Steel but also benefits many other businesses that we directly deal with, not to mention where our new employees spend their money. Thanks to the State of Montana’s public-private partnership, we can help keep Montana’s economy growing.”

Montana, The name Montana comes from the Spanish word Montaña, meaning "mountain", or more broadly, "mountainous country". Montaña del Norte was the name given by early Spanish explorers to the entire mountainous region of the west. The name Montana was added to a bill by the United States House Committee on Territories, which was chaired at the time by Rep. James Ashley of Ohio, for the territory that would become Idaho Territory. The name was successfully changed by Representatives Henry Wilson (Massachusetts) and Benjamin F. Harding (Oregon), who complained that Montana had "no meaning". When Ashley presented a bill to establish a temporary government in 1864 for a new territory to be carved out of Idaho, he again chose Montana Territory. This time Rep. Samuel Cox, also of Ohio, objected to the name. Cox complained that the name was a misnomer given that most of the territory was not mountainous and that a Native American name would be more appropriate than a Spanish one. Other names such as Shoshone were suggested, but it was eventually decided that the Committee on Territories could name it whatever they wanted, so the original name of Montana was adopted.
The topography of the state is roughly defined by the Continental Divide, which splits much of the state into distinct eastern and western regions. Most of Montana's 100 or more named mountain ranges are concentrated in the western half of the state, most of which is geologically and geographically part of the Northern Rocky Mountains. The Absaroka and Beartooth ranges in the south-central part of the state are technically part of the Central Rocky Mountains. The Rocky Mountain Front is a significant feature in the north-central portion of the state, and there are a number of isolated island ranges that interrupt the prairie landscape common in the central and eastern parts of the state. About 60 percent of the state is prairie, part of the northern Great Plains.
Between many mountain ranges are rich river valleys. The Big Hole Valley, Bitterroot Valley, Gallatin Valley, Flathead Valley, and Paradise Valley have extensive agricultural resources and multiple opportunities for tourism and recreation.
