Essential Oils

Massage – Buy a base oil: coconut oil is best here. If you have 20ml of base oil, half of the amount is the number of Essential Oil drops to use. That would make it 10 drops. In this case, you will add:

  1. 5 drops of Lavender and 5 drops of Peppermint.

Rub the blend over the temples and any areas of pain on the body, as required.

  1. 6 drops of Lavender and 4 drops of Frankincense.

Apply the blend over the body, as required, especially the shoulder, neck and chest.  A lovely evening time routine.

  1. 6 drops of Rosemary and 4 drops of Peppermint.

Apply the blend over the body, as required.  These are more stimulating oils, so they would be good for the morning routine.

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 2 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of Frankincense and 1 drop of Rosemary. Add Epsom salts.
  2. Or simply add 5ml of a massage blend.

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

Inhalation – Place 1 or 2 drops of your chosen oils onto a cloth/tissue. Inhale as necessary. Repeat throughout the day as necessary.

Diffuser – Add 5 drops into a diffuser. (2 of Lavender and 1 of each of the other oils)

* 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 **

** Rosemary – Avoid during pregnancy, HBP, Heart conditions, use with caution if on prescription medication. Avoid use with children below 5 years of age. A stimulating oil, so no high doses prior to bedtime. **

** 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 **

** Frankincense – Avoid use during pregnancy/lactating, if any bleeding disorders or on anticoagulants. Avoid with children below 5 and caution below 8 **
