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 Celsius).

A little goes a long way. I've been using this to help with sleep and relaxation. It's great with the grapeseed oil as a carrier oil. Feeling refreshed and well rested like never before.

One can never go wrong with lavender, it can be used in about anything and for so many reasons. I love the calming smell and often use it when I struggle to sleep, it is a great addition to a warm bath (only whem there aren't any water restrictions) and I even use it for cleaning surfaces.

What a good quality oil - used all round, bathroom, bedroom, lounge...a firm favorite.
05/03/2018, By Tebogo
A few drops in the bath is all you need to get the best sleep ever. I even put some in my toddler's bath on the days that he's especially hyper. Works great
17/11/2017, By Lauren
With toddlers in the house we use lavender oil almost daily - current favourite is mixed into coconut oil using an electric beater for an amazing after bath oil to promote sleepy time for two very busy twins. We also put a couple of drops onto the salt lamps around the house for a pleasant diffusion. Homemade laundry powder is incomplete without Lavender and lemon essential oil :)
20/10/2017, By Tracey
Always in the bathroom cupboard. A cup of Epsom salts and some lavender oil make the best relaxation therapy.
20/10/2017, By Naomi

I find that when i use too much it becomes strong for my nose but when a use a tiny drop its very relaxing
03/10/2017, By Jani
Definitely the most versatile essential oil. I use it in bath salt, the oil burner and on a handkerchief. Calms the user down quickly and aids in a good night's sleep.
02/10/2017, By J
A little pricey, but worth it for the multiple uses it offers.
15/09/2017, By Gerda
Ek maak my eie insekwerende room vir die somer. Meng olie met 'n groot pot aquasroom. Roer goed deur en gebruik soos nodig teen muskiete en ander insekte.
01/09/2017, By Mimi
Very concentrated compared to other brands...I love it.
31/08/2017, By Anel
So lovely for massages and to burn this oil in the room before you go to sleep. Soil Essential oils are the best!
27/08/2017, By Ruth
Like all the Soil oils, this one is very high quality and does everything it is supposed to do. Great for headaches and relaxing after a hectic day, and I also put a few drops in my homemade linen spray.
04/08/2017, By Panda
I used this for acne scarring and in my bath to relief muscle pain and stress. Works wonders <3
02/08/2017, By Taryn
I put a few drops of this oil on cotton wool in a glass jar and at bedtime, I take off the lid and the scent fills the air. It's a great product for providing a calm atmosphere
02/08/2017, By RUTH
A must for my granddaughter's bath - a few drops combined with Epson salts make for a great sleep
28/07/2017, By Carrie
I love my essential oils and lavender is the one oil that is always kept in the house and used in the bath and diffuser.
12/07/2017, By Joanette
Smells lovely! I am using this in the bath with the rosemary oil as well. I did sleep very well so maybe the relaxing effect kicked in. I am also interested to see how my skin and hair will react - so far so good. Skin looks nice and hair is soft
03/06/2017, By Ruth
This is one of my favourites. Great in a diffuser for calming and relaxing kids before bedtime
29/05/2017, By Des
Soil products are always great quality & I love using lavender oil in my burner to relax. I also like how their products are labelled so that you can easily distinguish between the different oils in your collection.

Great quality product! A must have in every household. I use Lavender essential oil daily. It has a multitude of qualities such as being a natural antibiotic, anti-septic, anti-depressant, sedative and de-toxifier which promotes healing and prevents scarring. One of the best qualities is that helps with the effects of shock and is a mood tonic. It really does help you wind down and relax. Love the smell!
04/04/2017, By Jenna
Very pungent. Use sparingly.
10/11/2016, By Jenna
Absolutley love this oil - really helps with de stressing and sleeping at night. A really calming smell. Can absolutely recommend
17/08/2016, By Janine H
I always have this lavender oil, I add it to oil masks and other hair products. I started using it a few days ago on my armpits as a deodorant but it made me terribly sleepy during the day so Ive stopped. So if you
e looking for something to make you feel sleepy this is it, wont cause redness/rash/burning when applied directly to armpit.
12/07/2016, By Caron
Love this oil! Add it to my bath for a wonderful relaxing bath. I mixed a few drops with Bio Oil and use it on a bad scar I have on my calf, been doing this for a month now and the scar is definitely lighter and hardly noticeable in places.
16/04/2016, By Michelle
I love this product! I put 5-10 drops in my childrens bath water every night. I have a very active 5 year old boy, and it really helps calm him down. Great product!
26/01/2016, By ashleigh
What don I use lavender oil for!!! Excellent for so many applications and the quality is awesome.
09/10/2015, By Terry
Castile liquid with some soil Lavender essential oil and coconut oil, as a doggy shampoo, and its wonderful. It has a multitude of other uses of course, but one of my German Shepherds has rather a sensitive skin, and this is the only product that has not left him itching for days after a bath!
15/09/2015, By Kas
I regularly burn lavender essential oil in my burners. The SOIL lavender essential oil is much stronger than others I have used previously, so you need only a few drops to produce the beautiful relaxing scent through the home.
12/09/2015, By Liesl
I add a few drops to a tub of epsom salts, and add to the bath. The combination of lavender (calming) and salts relieve stress and aches and pains, preparing you for a beautiful restful sleep.
04/08/2015, By Cindy
I put a few drops of lavender oil in my daughters bath every night have done since she was a baby (she is now nearly 5) , it calms relaxes her for bedtime.
Lavender oil is also a must in your household for burns, stings and bites!! Apply directly to the burn or sting and that terrible burny sensation disapears immdediately. Your burn will heal so much quicker. My little girl has been stung by a bee twice and a couple of applications of lavender oil and it was all forgotten about within a couple of hours.
31/03/2015, By Lelanie
I love lavender and the fact that this is organic, is just an added bonus.
26/01/2015, By Sarah
I am NOT a fan of the smell of lavender oil or dried lavender, but I cannot deny that the aroma really soothes my nerves and helps me sleep well. I also use a very small dot of it on my piercings at night to keep them clean and healthy
10/03/2014, By Justine
works immediately on burns and cuts and grazes. Always in my first aid box at home and camping.
07/03/2014, By Jolene
A few drops on my pillow at night send me into a blissful sleep. Love it!

I love lavender oil. The soil brand is the best I have ever tried. All my essential oils will be soil brand from now on.
11/06/2011, By Adele
I especially love SOILs Lavender oil. Very soft and fragrant. A small amount rubbed into the temples gets rid of a headache in no time. Great for colds and flu and insomnia. Also heals wounds and pimples FAST! Continual use made a burn scar on foot fade almost completely.
