How do I use essential oils?

As essential oils are obtained from natural raw material, they convey a whole and complex set of information from the plant. Also, distillation of essential oils is one of the oldest skills of humanity (3000BC), they were called the quintessence of the plant and they are still with us, as potent as ever. Essential oils can be used medicinally but conventional way of application of medicines (orally) might be not the best way. Due to their physical properties, essential oils can be administered more than one way. However, excessive dosages need to be avoided.

Essential oils are made up of very small lipophilic and volatile molecules. This gives them much greater mobility into and within the body, especially skin. They are aromatic, that is why they can influence behaviour. As essential oils are different in their physical properties from conventional drugs, the best way to utilise their properties will be topical application and inhalation.

Blended oils create the most enjoyable and effective products. They are tremendously versatile and can be used for massage, skin, and hair care, and as deodorants. We can indulge into the pleasures of relaxation in bath, foot bath, and sauna. We do enjoy a naturally fragrant home with scented candles, closets, drawers, laundry, and carpets.

For topical application essential oils should be diluted in a carrier oil and used as an ointment or massage oil. Organic quality helps to avoid unwanted skin reactions. A 1-2 percent dilution of essential oil in a carrier oil is the standard suggestion for skincare and massage oils. Pure essential oils are used for inhalation and in diffusers. We suggest you add a few drops to your diffuser or a drop or two to your clothes, aromatherapy necklaces or bracelets. You can always ask a certified aromatherapist for a custom-made blend.
