Note: It should not be used on the skin prior to sun exposure as it is phototoxic.
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).
10 out of 10 people would recommend this product11/07/2017, By Pumzathe smell is really calming and helps with dark spots on my face29/06/2017, By ShanonI was so scared to try lemon oil as I have used pure lemon juice for my skin to try and lighten scars or prevent breakouts. I have not had any success in using this method and thought maybe I should try the lemon essential oil. I know that lemon is very acidic and it can burn your skin sometimes so I was very hesitant to try this but I took a leap of faith as I saw all of the good reviews. I use this after I cleanse my face with tea tree face wash. I only put one drop in my hand mix that with vitamin C serum and then gave it onto my skin. After that I put on my love is sweet dreams night cream. I have really seen a massive difference in my skin and I hardly get any break outs. I think I can really think the lemon oil as I put this only on at night and I have really noticed my acne scars being light and every day and I can see that it really is working against my breakouts. If you have acne that comes up every night as I usually had then I would really recommend adding lemon essential oil to your routine.28/05/2017, By AjFresh and uplifting scent.28/05/2017, By AjFresh and uplifting scent.11/01/2017, By ShariSmells really nice.
