Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • Frankincense Essential Oil

Application (morning) – 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. This will make it 10 drops. In this case, you will add 5 drops of Eucalyptus and 5 drops of Frankincense. Apply the blend over the body, as required. Especially shoulders, chest and neck, vocal cords and apply at the base of the big toe. Especially effective after a bath/shower.

Application (evening) – 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. This will make it 10 drops. In this case, you will add 5 drops of Eucalyptus and 5 drops of Lavender. Apply the blend over the body, as required. Especially shoulders, chest and neck, vocal cords and apply at the base of the big toe. 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 Oil into a teaspoon of milk. Or a cup, if you would like more of a Cleopatra style bath. Use 3 drops of Eucalyptus and 2 drops of Lavender. 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.

Inhalation – Eucalyptus – Very useful for congestion, easing catarrh and soothing the respiratory tract: The age-old method of 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.

Diffuser – Add 5 drops into a diffuser.

** 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 **

** Eucalyptus – Avoid during pregnancy/lactation, epilepsy, on homeopathic remedies. Avoid use for children under 1 and with caution up to the age of 8 **

** Frankincense – Avoid use during pregnancy/lactating, if any bleeding disorders or on anticoagulants. Avoid with children below 5 and caution below 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 **
