Methods of using natural essential oils:
Aromatic Baths: sprinkle 4-8 drops of essential oil on to the water’s surface after the bath has been drawn. Agitate the water to disperse the oil. The effect of such baths is to reduce tension in body and mind.
Aromatic Toweling: after washing as usual, put 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oil on a wet face cloth or sponge; run it briskly all over your body.
Atomizers: use a garden mist pump or a spray bottle to disperse the molecules (dilute in water or rose water or alcohol for best results) into the air in a fine mist.
Compress: add about 6 drops of essential oil to a bowl containing about 500 ml of water, as hot as you can comfortably bear. Place a small towel on top of the water. Wring out the excess and place the towel over the area to be treated or run the towel all over your body. A compress is a valuable way of treating muscular pain, sprains and bruises as well as reducing pain and congestion in internal organs.
Cotton Ball: Add a few drops of essential oil onto cotton ball in a small bowl, and let it slowly disperse the essential oil into the air; this is suitable for wardrobes, office desks and automobiles.
Cream and Shampoo: To enhance the therapeutic effect of your favorite cream or shampoo add a drop of suitable essential oil and feel the difference.
Diffuser: To get the most from your essential oils a diffuser is used to help disperse the molecules into the air. This enables the body to use them as you breathe in the wonderful aromas. Some use electricity and others a heating element or small lit candle under a bowl of water. In the bowl add water and a few drops of your favorite essential oil, the heat generated from the electricity or heating element or a lit candle will warm the water and help disperse the oil molecules into the air.
Foot and Hand Baths: sprinkle 5-6 drops of the appropriate essential oil in a bowl of lukewarm water. Soak feet or hands for about 10 minutes. At the end of a tiring day this can be relaxing and can even alleviate tension headaches.
Gargles and Mouthwashes: for sore throats and laryngitis add one drop of lemon or peppermint oil to a glass containing 2 teaspoonfuls of cider vinegar. Stir well to disperse the oil, and then fill the glass with warm water. Natural essential oil dissolves better in cedar vinegar and also vinegar helps reduce the build-up of tartar on the inside of teeths back.
Inhalations: to help clear nasal passages when you have a cold or flu, put 5-10 drops of essential oil on your handkerchief and inhale as required. Essential oil can also be sprinkled on your pillow to ease nasal congestion and to aid restful sleep.
Steam Inhalations: pour 500 ml of near boiling water into a bowl and then add 2-4 drops of essential oil. Inhale the vapors for 5-10 minutes. In order to trap the aromatic steam more effectively, drape a towel over your head and the bowl. Steam inhalations helps relieve respiratory problems.
