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).

Works well.26/10/2018, By JessicaI used this in a burner yesterday for the first time and it filled the entire house with a very strong smell of citronella, mozzies be gone! Enjoy these essential oils very much.15/10/2018, By JessicaI have major issues with those pesky mosquito’s, I'm always getting bitten. I am new to essential oils so other than burning them or using them in the bath I'm a bit clueless, but I figured let me try and put some on me with a carrier oil which I did. Even though I smelt pretty strongly of citronella oil it was worth it since I didn't have any bites the next morning that I could see :) I like the smell and think it'll work well for nights out to keep the pesky mosquito's at bay.17/08/2018, By ASoil essential oils are totally awesome
