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).

One can almost smell the colour... ;) Beautiful in an oil burner with cinnamon in winter.22/11/2017, By AliceLong lasting, I think I might even use it as a perfume :)28/10/2017, By Maxinebeautiful long lasting aroma04/11/2016, By AdeleA potent oil, which means a little goes a long way. Very effective for restlessness. Works a charm on hyped up little people and big people, alike...31/05/2016, By MelanieI have used this product in my drinking water. It just adds a lovely refreshing flavour to plain water. Mandarin is great for blood cleansing and assists in pushing out toxins via excretions from the body. The flavour lingers on in the bottle long after you have drank the water. So when I refill the bottle with water, I still get the refreshing flavour of mandarin.26/01/2016, By ashleighI always have this on hand for my kids as it is very effective for sore tummies!
