HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OIL BLENDS
BATH: 5-10 drops dispersed into a full bathtub. This is one of the most effective, easiest and enjoyable methods of absorbing oils through your skin. Some blends using rich dark coloured oils, such as Deep Relax, Musk Mood, Sensual, and Tropixshould be mixed with 1 tsp of milk to disperse the oils effectively and this will avoid any stains in fibreglass bathtubs. One cup of Epsom Salts stirred into the bath water increases the absorption of the oils into the skin.
SHOWER: 2-4 drops on a wet cloth. After washing, add 2-6 drops to your wet cloth, squeeze and press the cloth over your skin. Continue wetting the cloth and pressing onto your skin until the essential oil blend has dispersed. This is a beautiful way to naturally perfume your body and to enjoy the oil’s healing benefits. Use invigorating oil blends like Vitality or Clear Mind for your morning shower and relaxation blends like Balance, Rose & Jasmine or Zen for your evening shower.
