Carrier Oils & Essential Oils
Aromatherapy is the use of essences of aromatic
plants for healing and maintaining vitality. Also known as "essential
oils" or "concentrated smells". These oils are naturally found in tiny
sacs in different parts of plants: flowers, leaves, bark, berries, stems
There are several ways of using the oils, all of them very pleasant: massage, bathing, compress, inhalation (NOTE: Never use them internally). They work by the absorption of minute quantities of the oil through the skin as well as inhalation of the aroma.
It is important to buy oils from a reputable source to guarantee purity
and quality. Essential oils are like wines in that they can have good
and bad years. Look for the words "pure essential oil" on the label, as
synthetic oils and diluted mixtures do not have the same potency. The products we sell are all high quality pure essential oils from a UK manufacturer.
The usual dosage for massage is: 3 -5 drops aromatherapy oil in 15ml (3 tsp) carrier oil.
