PostSubject: Aroma Therapy - General Info   Sat Mar 18, 2017 2:18 am

I love essential oils and many years ago learned all about them and how to use them correctly.

The range of essential oils grows and grows and it's a delightful process mixing some of these oils with a good quality Carrier Oil or Base Oil as some call it and use that for a massage.

A lot of websites say that one can add 10ml of an oil to the bath water and have a nice, relaxing bath. I have found however that by doing this the oil seems to float at the surface and leaves this oily residue on the body.

I would recommend when wanting to have an oil bath, to mix the oil with a little milk - mix it well and then pour that below the running tap.
Doing it this way will disperse the oil a lot better.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]The best way to store Essential Oils is in a wooden box.
It's easier to have them all together like that and it looks good.

The main reason for storing them like this is because the wooden box keeps the bright, warm daylight out. The darker the bottles used and then stored inside a wooden box, the longer the oils keep their qualities.


Massage Oils

I always buy Base Oil in bulk which works out so much cheaper. There is variety of base oils on the market these days and any good Cold Pressed Massage Oil will do the job.

Base or Carrier oils are cold pressed from vegetables, nuts or seeds. Because of their purity they contain many nutrients to nourish the skin.

Not only will these oils make the perfect base to create your own aromatherapy massage oils, they are also a great base to make your own skin care. The carrier oil  assists in the absorption of essential oil into the body.

Only mix small amounts of essential oils at a time, and use them quickly. You only need about 5 to 6 drops of essential oil to 10mls of carrier massage oil.

Candle Oil Burner

Add oils to water in a candle oil burner.

Now depending on the mood one's in or what season it is, one can make all sorts of blends.



Electric Oil Burner

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] If you don't want to use candles then there is the option to use an electric oil burner. You do not use water in these burners because they operate with  a low temperature and therefore are safer.

The latest rage is the Diffuser and I must say that I love this one as it's such an easy thing to use for all sorts of moods or even for breathing better when having a cold.

The diffuser has been brilliant this past winter for me as I used one just for Eucalyptus Oil and with so many people with the flu it helped me breathe easy.
