ALL ESSENTIAL OILS ARE FLAMMABLE ALWAYS DILUTE BEFORE USE
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
SUGGESTED WAYS TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS:
Baths: For safe and effective use of single oils and blends, we reccomend using 2 capfuls of Calendula Base Bath before adding 5-8 drops of essential oil to water just before stepping into bath. This helps to emulsify the oils and disperse them in the water.
FOOT BATH: Add 7 drops to a bowl of fairly hot water. Soak feet for 10 minutes.
BODY MASSAGE OIL: Add up to 50-60 drops of essential oil to 100ml of vegetable base oil. Shake well.
BODY FRAGRANCING: Add up to 50-60 drops of essential oil to 100ml of base oil.
INHALATIONS: 4-6 drops in a bowl of hot water. Place towel over head and shoulders. Breathe vapours for 1 minute then remove towel. Repeat 5-10 times.
COMPRESSES: Add 5 drops to 1/2 pint of warm water. Lay cloth on surface of water then lay over injured part of body. When compress is cool repeat once more then cover with warm towel and leave in place for 1 hour.
VAPORISER: Add 10 drops (or more, depending on room size) to water in bowl and heat with candle. Place vaporiser on heat resistance surface. Make sure candle does not soot excessively (soot can catch alight). Ensure bowl does not run dry of water. Can also be used in saunas, steam room, or sprinkled on pillows and sheets (with due caution).
Suitable for babies from 4 months to 2 years old: use 1 drop per treatment.
Children aged 2 to 7 years: use 2-3 drops;
8 to 13 years: use 3-4 drops.
Essential oils must be treated with great respect.
The following cautions relate to excessive repetitive usage. Do not abuse and you should be fine in general usage. Always consult a Practitioner if you have any doubts. We are also available to give advice.
All essential oils and essential oil blends should not be used internally.
All ingredients are now listed in either the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) name or Latin name. Scientific names are seen to be more universal, the title of a product will carry the common name.
Our essential oils are tested by our suppliers with either gas chromatography (G.C.) or mass spectrograph (M.S.). Organic essential oils have either been certified by the Soil Association or Ecocert.
Organic essential oils must be chosen with care and are not always superior. The most important thing is the effectiveness of the components of an E/O, this is its true potency and therapeutic profile.
Because essential oils and plant materials can change due to climate, soil etc. some products or essential oils may be slightly different in colour or even fragrance. This is completely natural and we inform our staff of batch numbers that, on occasion, may vary. Some oil supplies are now depleting; Sandalwood is one such oil. Rosewood is an oil that may soon disappear as the reserved amount held by our suppliers is limited.
