Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Ginger Essential Oil

Massage – Buy a base oil: Jojoba or Sweet almond oil. 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 Ginger and 2 drops of Peppermint. Rub the blend over the abdominal 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:

  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 Ginger and 1 drop of Peppermint. 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.

** 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.

 ** 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 **

** Ginger – Use low doses, a strong, warming oil. Avoid during pregnancy, HBP, Heart conditions, Cancer, Diabetes, Liver damage, Skin disorders/sensitivity. No sun direct sun exposure to any skin applications for 24hours **

** 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 be aware of using it at night time. Safe all around for inhaling **
