How To Use Essential Oils

In the Bath

Add the recommended number of drops of essential oil (but no more than 10 in total) to 20 ml (one tablespoon) of neutral foam or vegetable oil and pour it under running water.

As a Massage

Blend 10-12 drops of one or more essential oils into 30 ml of a carrier massage oil.

For a Facial Moisturizer

Place two drops of essential oil in 4 ml of a neutral lotion or cream base. Avoid applying it near the eyes.

For a Body Lotion

Place five drops of essential oil in 10 ml of a neutral lotion or cream base.

In a Sauna

Add three or four drops of essential oil to a ladle of water and pour it over the hot coals.

In a Perfume Diffuser

Also known as a vaporizer. Add three or four drops of essential oil to a little water in the dish before switching it on or lighting the candle underneath.

In a Room Spray

Add two drops of essential oil to 150 ml of warm water in a clean plant mister.





When you are blending your own aromatherapy treats, look for bath and massage oils that combine skin-protective oils, such as nourishing grapeseed oil, and softening apricot kernel oil. As well as mixing your own blends, you can also enjoy using ready-made essential oil-based candles, skincare, and haircare products, soaps, foam baths, massage oils and bath salts.
