How to Use Therapeutic Aromatic Essence Blends
  1. Aromatherapy:
    • Diffusion: Add a few drops of essential oil to a diffuser follow the instructions provided with it. Turn it on and let the aroma disperse throughout the room.
    • Inhalation: Place a drop or two of essential oil on a tissue or cotton ball and inhale deeply. You can also add a few drops to a bowl of hot water and inhale the steam.
  2. Topical Application:
    • Dilution: Essential oils are highly concentrated and should be diluted with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil, jojoba oil, or almond oil) before applying to the skin. A typical dilution ratio is 1–3 drops of essential oil per teaspoon of carrier oil.
    • Massage: Mix diluted essential oil with a carrier oil and massage onto the skin. This can help promote relaxation, ease muscle tension, and improve circulation.
    • Compress: Add a few drops of essential oil to warm water, soak a cloth in the mixture, and apply it to the affected area as a warm compress.
  3. Ingestion:
    • Dilution: When ingesting essential oils, always dilute them in a carrier oil or mix them into food or beverages. Start with a small amount and gradually increase as tolerated. Not all essential oils are safe for ingestion.
    • Caution: Qualified healthcare professional, such as an aromatherapist or a licensed naturopathic doctor, is crucial if you intend to use essential oils internally for therapeutic purposes. They can provide personalized guidance and help you establish a safe and effective protocol tailored to your specific health needs and circumstances. Internal use of essential oils carries additional risks and considerations compared to external or aromatic use, so professional guidance is highly recommended to ensure your safety and well-being.
  4. Other Uses:
    • Bathing: Add a few drops of essential oil to a warm bath for a relaxing and aromatic experience.
    • Cleaning: Essential oils with antimicrobial properties, such as tea tree oil or lemon oil, can be added to homemade cleaning products to help disinfect surfaces.
  5. Safety Precautions:
    • Patch Test: Before using a new essential oil topically, perform a patch test by applying a small amount to a discreet area of skin and waiting for 24 hours to check for any adverse reactions.
    • Keep Out of Reach: Store essential oils out of reach of children and pets. Ingestion of certain essential oils can be harmful.
