Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Lemon Essential Oil
  • Tea Tree Essential Oil

Massage – Buy a base oil: coconut, sweet almond, grape seed for example. If you have 20ml of base oil, add half the amount of Essential Oil drops. In this case, you will add 5 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of Tea Tree, 2 drops of Lemon and 1 drop of Peppermint. Rub the mixture over the body, as required. Especially effective after a bath.

Bath – Your skin is the most absorbent part of the body. The heat of the bath assists in the absorption. There are 2 ways to do this:

  1. Diffusing 5 drops (maximum) of Essential Oils into a teaspoon of milk. Or a cup, if you would like more of a Cleopatra style bath. Use 3 drops of Lavender, 1 drop of Tea Tree and 1 drop of Lemon. Add Epsom salts.
  2. Or simply add 5ml of your massage blend.

Close all windows. Soak for 15-20 minutes minimum. Avoid splashing in the eyes.

Diffuser/Burner – Add 5 drops in total of your choice. A drop of each and 2 drops of lavender for relaxation is lovely.

Inhalation – If nausea is experienced, a drop of Peppermint onto a tissue/cloth and inhale as necessary.

Inhalation – (for relaxation). A drop of Lavender onto a tissue/cloth and inhale as necessary.

** A patch test is required – 1 drop of aromatherapy oil to 4 drops of base oil. Apply a coin size amount to a patch of skin on the inner arm **

If sensitivity occurs, apply more base oil to soothe the area. Possibly avoid use for a further 10 days. If you wish to continue, dilute to ¼ of the original amount and test on a small area of skin. If there is no further reaction, continue with that dosage.

** Oils are for external use only and must be blended with a carrier oil. Always avoid the eyes, ears and nose **

** Lavender is the safest of oils, if on a rare occasion you react, apply more base oil to the skin to soothe it and dilute the massage blend with more base oil **

** Lemon – Avoid if pregnant/lactating, Avoid sun exposure after application for 12 hours. Avoid if on prescription medication. Avoid use on children below 5 **

** Tea Tree – Avoid up to the age of 5. Can irritate the skin and be very drying on its own **

** Peppermint – Avoid use during pregnancy/lactating, or if on homeopathic remedies. Avoid use in children under 5. Use low doses, it’s a very cooling oil and strong. May irritate the skin. It is a stimulant, so do not add to the bath before bed. Safe all around for inhaling. Peppermint is very strong and potent, do not use more than 1-2 drops **
