Note: Excessive use may cause nausea or headaches.
Directions for Use
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.
- Baths: Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don't escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
- Massage: add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
- Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
- Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 - 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.
Caring for Your Essential Oils
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).

Smells good and Absorbs well

I use the Almond oil with a drop or two of the Ylang Ylang Ess oil as an all over moisturiser. It absorbs well and leaves my skin feeling silky soft with a nice smell.

Beautiful oil for women

I just love the Soil range of essential oils, they are of exceptional quality and all come with a label on the lid and description on the side to make it quick and easy to find the oil you are looking for. Ylang Ylang is just such a seductive feminine oil on its own and even better when blended with Patchouli and/or Clary Sage.

I like to use a few drops of this oil as a perfume by applying them behind my ears and neck :-) I dont like regular perfumes but this is a extremely pleasant smell which uplifts the spirit, dont use too much as it can be overwhelming!
