How to use Essential oils
An essential oil diffuser- drop a few drops of the oil into the diffuser.
Drop a few drops of the oil onto a dry cotton ball or pad and keep it close enough to be able to smell it.
Mix with a carrier oil and apply it directly to the area. Google the oils you want to use and read the instructions as to how much to use.
Essential oils are extremely potent and need to be treated with the utmost respect.
If you are in doubt lavender seems to cure or help everything and is safe enough to be applied neat. Neat is the application of an essential oil without blending it with a carrier oil directly onto the skin. (Do not apply unto broken skin, spots, open cuts unless you research it or ask a medical practitioner.
Steam- You can put the oils into a basin or bowl of steaming water. The oils attach to the steam molecules and rise. Place your head over the bowl with a towel over you and breath deeply. Please be careful as this can leave you feeling dizzy as essential oils are very potent and powerful.
You can use a few drops of essential oils in the bath.
