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).

It helps to detox the skin and heal old scars. The best way to apply is to mix up your own skin healing facial oil. In a 30ml amber glass dropper bottle, add 4 drops of Frankincense essential oi, 3 drops of Lavender essential oil and 2 drops of Tea Tree oil. Top up with Grapeseed oil, shake vigorously and store in a cool dark place. Apply just 2 or 3 drops in the palms of your hands, rub your palms together to warm, and press the serum on your whole face and neck every night before bed.04/04/2016, By JanineIve added 20 drops of frankincense and 20 drops of lavender oil to my 100ml tamanu oil for the oil cleansing method and Im happy with the scent and how relaxed I feel when breathing it in from my facecloth.
