HOW TO USE YOUR ESSENTIAL OILS
Research on odour reveals that we respond more emotionally to smell than to any of our other senses. Because of this, aromatherapy enables us to benefit from the special properties of pure essential oils which are derived from the odoriferous parts of plants. Whether we are using the oils therapeutically to enhance our wellbeing, or purely for pleasure, there are various effective ways to use them - via massage, bathing, vaporisation and inhalation:
There is nothing quite like a massage to make you feel soothed or energised. As pure essential oils should not be applied directly to the skin, they need to be diluted first. To do this, mix up to 5 drops of pure essential oil, or blend of oils, per 10mls (one tablespoon) of vegetable oil or lotion blending base.
Bathing with pure essential oils is one of the easiest and most enjoyable forms of therapy. Just before getting into a full bath, add 3-5 drops of essential oil, or blend of oils, then agitate the water to disperse. While you relax in the bath, a small amount of oil is absorbed by the skin and the rest is slowly evaporated by the heat of the water.
The evaporative properties of pure essential oils make them ideal for use in a vaporiser. To create the ambience of your choice, simply add 6-12 drops of essential oil to your vaporiser.
Some pure essential oils, such as eucalyptus with its wonderful clearing properties, are ideal for inhalation. Add 3-5 drops of pure essential oil to a bowl of very hot water (not boiling) and inhale the vapour for 5-10 minutes. If this method is not convenient, simply add 1-2 drops of essential oil to a tissue and inhale - ideal if you are out and about.
If you have a skin condition, are pregnant, have epilepsy or asthma, are on a course of treatment with prescribed medication, or are in any doubt about any condition you may have, it is important that you seek the advice of a doctor or suitable practitioner before using pure essential oils.
