What is great about essential oils is that they can be used in a variety of ways, with benefits extending from health to household. Find out the 5 most common ways of using essential oils.
- Topical application
When using topically, Essential Oils are a great complement to any Butter (think Shea, Cocoa or Mango butter) or Carrier oil (like Argan, Almond and Coconut oil). Typically, Butters and Carrier Oils are used in greater quantities than Essential Oils. Mostly because of their moisturizing benefits. Furthermore most oils and butters are either odorless or have only a faint scent to them.
Essential Oils on the other hand, have intense aromas and provide many benefits that Butters or Carrier oils cannot provide.
The Essential oils deliver these benefits by either penetrating the skin or simply through aromatherapy (inhalation).
Because Essential oils are strong, we recommend mixing them with a Carrier Oil when applying topically. We also advise on testing them on an inconspicuous place on your body before any general application.
Adding Essential oils is a popular technique to enhance massages. Whether you need to energize your body or unravel after a long workday, Essential oils can truly enrich your experience. Just mix a few drops of your preferred Essential Oil with any of our massage Carrier Oils (our favorite is Almond Oil).
Add a few drops of your choice of Essential Oil to a bowl of warm water. Dip a washcloth in the water and apply on the desired area, such as an aching muscle, the belly or the forehead.
Very simply add a few drops to your warm bath water. Choose your Essential Oil based on your favorite scent and on the benefits you are searching for.
The most common way of using Essential oils is through inhalation, also called Aromatherapy. The recommended method is by adding a few drops of your essential oil of choice with water to a diffuser, like the one below. The aromas will evaporate and spread around the desired room.
An alternative method is to add a few drops to boiling water, cover your head with a towel and breath through your nose, keeping your eyes closed. It’s not as fancy or practical as using a diffuser, but you equally retain all the benefits.
