— The practice of administering essential oils can be in several ways which include:
Diffused through the air:
Add 4-6 drops into an oil burner or oil diffuser.
In a bath:
Due to the potency, a small number of drops is all that is required. The reason for this is that oil and water do not mix as you may well know. Therefore, the oils will float on the top of the water and attached on the edge of the bath and onto your skin. Essential oils combined with hot water in the bath may potential cause skin irritation. A safe, effective way to use essential oils in a bath is to mix them with a liquid which will be able to combine them so that they mix and disperse within the water, such as milk or a carrier oil such as jojoba. The milk or carrier oil protects your skin, and helps the essential oils disperse through the bath water making it safer for both children and adults.
On the skin:
Massage them into the skin by first mixing into a carrier oil base or in a skin cream base. It is recommended that you use only one or two drops in a base oil or cream for topical use and seek professional advice in order to address particular health issues such as dry or itchy skin conditions before applying.
Add a few drops to a water spray bottle and shake well before spraying onto surfaces to use with a cleaning cloth. For floors, add a few drops to a bucket of hot water.
With regards to ingestion of essential oils. Though our oils are the finest and purest oils available, we do not recommend ingestion. It is against government regulation in United Kingdom to prescribe essential oils for medical purposes unless by a qualified health care practitioner who has knowledge of essential oil toxicology and an understanding of how essential oils interact with the body.
