We would suggest the following:
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Peppermint 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, 3 drops of Eucalyptus and 2 drops of Peppermint. Rub the blend over the affected facial area, 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:
- 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 Eucalyptus and 1 drop of Peppermint. Add Epsom salts.
- Or simply add 5ml of your massage blend.
Close all windows. Soak for 15-20 minutes minimum. Avoid splashing in the eyes.
Sleep – You can place 1 drop of Lavender on your pillow at night to aid sleep.
** 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.
** Eucalyptus – Avoid during pregnancy/lactation, epilepsy, on homeopathic remedies. Avoid use for children under 1 and with caution up to the age of 8 **
** 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 **
** Peppermint – Safe for inhalation all around. As for application – 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 apply before bed. It’s a very strong oil, so no more than a few drops to be used, adjust your blend to suit your skin **
