Directions for use:
An easy, enjoyable way of using oils is to add 6 – 10 drops maximum to a bath. Relax and inhale the vapour. For a child’s bath or those with sensitive skin add 2 drops only and dilute in vegetable oil such as almond or grapeseed before adding to the bath. A footbath has many of the benefits of a full bath whilst saving time and water.
Add 2 to 4 drops of oil into a bowl of steaming hot water and inhale. Oils may also be inhaled by putting a few drops on a tissue.
In an oil burner the heat from a night light candle can be used to vaporise a few drops of essential oil. Depending on the size of the room and ventilation add between 5 and 15 drops to the bowl of the burner and fill with water.
Often the most effective way of using essential oils is by massage. As the oil passes through the skin into the blood stream, the therapeutic actions of the oil and the massage combine together and enhance each other’s effectiveness.
Fill a basin with water, sprinkle in 4 drops of oil, dip a cloth in the water, squeeze out and apply. Compresses may be used hot for arthritic /rheumatic pain or Cold for headaches, sprains etc.
Essential oils will keep for at least a year (and in most cases longer) provided they are stored in a cool dark place.
