Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Peppermint 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 6 drops of Lavender and 4 drops of Peppermint. Apply the blend over the bottom of the foot, as required.  Twice a day at least.  Especially effective after a bath.

** A patch test is required for application – 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 **

** 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 **

You may use a plain Lavender blend as well, for evenings, if preferred.
