Basic Uses for Essential Oil

Essential oils are versatile plant-based wonders. They can be soothing and relaxing, stimulating and uplifting, naturally antibacterial and antiseptic and useful for almost all areas of your daily life. I started making products with essential oils years ago to get away from chemical based products that have cause problems for our bodies and the planet.

Here are some suggestions and ways that you can use these oils.

Massage:
This is a great way to use essential oils.  Their therapeutic properties seep into your skin, relaxing and toning muscles.  Dilute the oil in a carrier oil such as Sweet Almond or Grapeseed oil, never put pure essential oils on the skin (exceptions to this are lavender and Tea Tree).

 1 drop of pure essential oil + 6 drops of carrier oil
                                             
                                         
Bath:
There's nothing like soaking in a tub of warm fragrant water to make the body feel good. The aromatherapeutic properties can ease tension and prepare the mind for a quiet night or the day ahead of you. Ex: 2 drops lavender, 2 drops rosemary, 2 drops eucalyptus

6-10 drops in a tub of warm water
                                                 

Compress:
A pad of absorbent material pressed onto a part of the body to relieve inflammation. Soak a clean cotton cloth in mixture of oils and warm water and wring out well.  Place cloth on the affected area.


5-10 drops of essential oil to 100ml warm water


Inhalation:
Place 5-10 drops of essential oil in a bowl of hot water. Cover head with a towel and inhale the vapor, for at least 3 minutes. KEEP EYES CLOSED. The oils clear chest and sinuses, clear up a foggy head & clears pores.

2 drops lavender, 2 drops tea tree, 2 drops eucalyptus

     
Or place in a diffuser and diffuse into your room.


Abrasions & Minor Burns:
Abrasion: Clean the area well with 5 drops of lavender oil diluted in a bowl of warm water. Apply one drop undiluted directly from bottle and leave to heal.


Burn: Immediately apply ice cold water for 10 minutes.  Then apply 2 drops of undiluted lavender directly from bottle.
