Using Essential Oils

Essential oils (eo) can be used in various ways and I’m going to discuss three general methods to help you get the best use from them.

Body Methods

  • Perfume – dissolve your eo (the strength is up to you) in oil and apply to the body as you would perfume.
  • Tissue or handkerchief – apply 1 drop and sniff as needed.
  • Inhaled as a Vapor – use 2-3 drops¬† of eo. Pour hot water into a bowl, add the oil, cover your head with a towel and lean over the bowl with your face about 10 inches away and with your eyes closed. Breath deeply through your nose for 1 to 3 minutes, take a break and do it again as needed or until the water cools.
  • Massage oil –¬† use a maximum of 5 drops to each teaspoon of carrier oil or as directed in a particular recipe. Purchase a brown glass bottle and measure out your base oil. You can use sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, shea oil, coconut oil, etc. Add the essential oil and blend it into the carrier oil by turning the bottle upside down several times and then rolling the bottle briskly between your hands. You only need about a teaspoon of this mixture poured into the palm of your hand to massage the whole body.

We will continue this blog with two other methods.
