We would suggest the following:

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.
Inhalation – Eucalyptus – Very useful for congestion, easing catarrh and soothing the respiratory tract: The age-old method of a towel over the head. Pour boiled water into a bowl. Add 10 drops of Eucalyptus. Agitate the water. Close your eyes. Place a towel over your head. Inhale the vapours for a few minutes at a time, for up to 10 minutes, or as long as comfortable. Repeat as many times as necessary. A facial steamer can also be used, but with 3-5 drops of Essential Oil.
Cloth/tissue – Place 1 or 2 drops of Essential Oils of your choice onto a cloth/tissue. Inhale repeat throughout the day as necessary. (1 drop of Eucalyptus and 1 drop of Peppermint)
Sleep – You can place 1 drop of Lavender on your pillow at night to aid sleep.
Diffuser – Add 5 drops into a diffuser. (2 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of Eucalyptus and 1 drop of Peppermint).
** 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 **
