USES OF ESSENTIAL OILS
Essential oils have many properties and utilisations. Not only attenuate our imperfections and minor diseases but also prevent them balancing a global psycho-physical well-being.
Aromatic baths Fill the bath tub with warm (28-30°C) or hot (35-38°C) water. Add 5 to 12 drops of essential oil and dive in. The temperature allows essences to act on the skin and through the vapor breathing too. Exfoliation before bathing is suggested to remove dead cells and prepare the skin to better receive active ingredients.
Foot and hand baths Fill a bowl with hot water (35-38°C) and add 8 to 10 drops of essential oil. Dive hands up to the wrists or feet up to the ankles, keeping constant the temperature. Massage Add 2 to 5 drops of essential oil to the massage oil or cream.
Fumigations Fill a bowl with boiling water and add 2 to 8 drops of essential oil. Cover the head with a towel and inhale vapour for max 3 minutes. Stop for a couple of minutes and restart until the steam is over.
Inhalations and rooms diffusers Add 2-4 drops of essential oil in a towel and deeply inhale 3 times. It is possible to mix up to 3 essential oils. Add 2-4 drops of essential oil in diffuser to perfume rooms.
