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).
8 out of 8 people would recommend this product12/06/2018, By AyeshaFantastic for respiratory problems. Assisted with relief of blocked nose, put some on my pillow at night while battling a cold. Mixed some with peppermint and body butter to rub on face and keep nose and lips moisturized post sneezing. Milder than eucalyptus in smell, works just as well maybe even better.30/05/2018, By MelaniSuch a great product and very well priced28/12/2017, By ColleenIt perfect for stuffy noses.26/09/2017, By ColleenI love this product, it works so well for chest colds and flu, my daughter likes to put a drop or two on her pillow at night, as she says that it helps her to breath better at night.
Thanks31/08/2017, By SanetI find eucalyptus oil a bit overwhelming for respiratory use, so I use this instead. It's strong enough to clear the passages, but not so strong that it knocks your breath away. It's also in the same family as tea tree oil, so it can also be used for treating breakouts, cuts, or bites.05/08/2017, By LorLove the scent and very concentrated!17/07/2017, By SusanI add a few drops of this oil in the bathtub from time to time. It is very relaxing and help clears my sinuses. However I feel the smell is a bit overpowering so I add a few drops of Lemongrass oil as well. Wonderful combination!19/05/2014, By BeulahLove the fresh camphorous smell of this one. I use it for mostly for chesty coughs.
