HEALTH BENEFITS

Essential Oils are highly concentrated plant oils that are extracted from fruits, leaves, roots, flowers, and other parts of the plant. Each and every essential oil contains compounds with unique healing and therapeutic benefits. Essential oil uses range from aromatherapy, household cleaning products, skin and beauty care, all the way to Ayurvedic natural remedies. Here are a few of the DIY Essential Oil recipes that can be easily made with our essential oils and a few common household items.

HOW TO USE

Diffusing: Diffusers help disperse essential oil particles into the air. Dispersing a balanced amount of essential oils can create an aromatic and healing environment. This allows you to breathe in the therapeutic properties of pure essential oils.

 

Inhalation: For a basic inhalation method , just open your essential oil bottle and gently inhale. Another simple method is to mix 1 drop of essential oil with about 10 drops of a carrier oil into your hands, rub your hands together, and then, cup your hands under your nose and breathe in deeply.

 

Topical: Before applying to your skin, we highly advise that you use a carrier oil to dilute the essential oils. It is important to test the oil on a small patch of skin first, and only one oil at a time.

Carrier Oils such as Fractionated and Virgin Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Oil can be used as Carrier or Base oils to dilute essential oils. (10:1 ratio)
