How To Use Essential Oils
Using a Diffuser/Nebulizer
In order to keep all the properties of the essential oils, the diffuser should not overheat the oils. It is better to use an electric diffuser. We recommend various electric diffusers from Aromansse Boutique
On The Skin
Use a tablespoon of virgin oil mixed with one or more than one of our essential oils or use essential oils that are made for this purpose only.
NOTE: It is NOT recommended to use pure essential oils directly onto your skin
In The Bath
Fill up your bath with water and mix five to ten drops of essential oils in the water.
In The Sauna
A few drops of essential oils mixed with a little bit of water.
Use lukewarm water mixed with a few drops of one or more than one essential oils and breathe the vapour.
One to four drops of essential oil 4 times a day mixed with half a glass of hot water (Warning: Ask your doctor or therapist, as long as that person has a very good knowledge in using essential oils)
