How to use your Essential Oils

  • mix with water for oil burner or room diffuser 
  • Incorporated with carrier oils to make massage oils
  • Added to water to be used as fomentations and compresses 
  • added in minute quantity to bath
  • added to alcohol to make toilet waters and perfumes
  • incorporated with a carrier to make insect repellants
  • used in shampoos, conditioners and hair tonics
  • used to strengthen the perfume of potpourri
  • used to add antibacterial and antiviral qualities to room freshener sprays
  • used in preparations for pets, to heal skin conditions and repel fleas
  • added to floor and furniture cleaners
  • should only be used internally on the advise of a qualified aromatherapist or naturopath
  • keep the essential oils out of the reach of children-they could be lethal if taken even in small quantities
  • some must be avoid during pregnancy, and others are toxic in large quantities
  • most of the essential oils should be combined with a carrier oil such as sweet almond oil or olive oil, before using on the skin as they are too strong to use alone
  • always use the appropriate proportions of the essential oils and the carrier oil. the total amount of essential oils should rarely exceed 3 or 4% of the total amount, and some oils should be used in far smaller amounts
  • the cautions and suggestions for quantities to use need to be carefully observed. The difference in action between one and two drops can be very great.
