Pure Essential OilsFor your healthy, the complementary aromatherapy of essential oils can enhance your lives and help prevent illness. By awakening the senses of smell and touch, we can relieve tension, improve sleep, enhance mood and alleviate many physical ailments. Additionally, diffusing essential oils into the air can purify and cleanse the air in your desire area, as well as provide a pleasant and calming aroma. Using essential oils in a personal diffuser or in a room diffuser can also help to improve concentration and focus. Furthermore, incorporating essential oils into your daily skincare routine can also have a positive impact on the health and appearance of your skin. There are many ways of use essential oils as following: Body Massage, Compresses, Inhalations and Facial Steam, Air Fresheners, Vaporizers and Aromatic Bath.

Compresses: Use warm compresses to ease backache or abdominal pains; cold compresses for treating headaches, swollen joints, bruises and sprains. Add up to 6 drops of essential oil to a large bowl of water. Stir, then place a face-cloth on the water's surface to collect a film of oil. Wring out and apply to the affected area for 5-15 minutes, re-soaking the cloth as needed to maintain its temperature.

Steam InhalationSteam Inhalations: Inhalations are invaluable for easing respiratory problems, catarrh, sore throats and coughs, and are an effective way to open the pores to deep clean the skin. Do not use inhalations if you suffer from asthma or broken capillaries. Fill a large bowl with boiling water or using your sink in the bathroom, add 2-3 drops of essential. Lean over the bowl and, for effectiveness, cover your head with a towel to trap the steam for 5-10 minutes - take deep breaths for feeling essential oils and shut your eyes as the molecule of essential oil in the vapour can sting. For skin problems, do not use more than once a week; for respiratory problems, use up to tree times a day. The suitable essential oils for steam inhalations are Lavender, Geranium, Roman Chamomile and Peppermint.

Air Fresheners: To deter insects from a room, rid the air of cooking smells and generally freshen up your room, add 2 drops of your favorite essential oils to 100ml of cooled, boiled water in a plant sprayer. Shake well, and spray the room. Lavender and Roman Chamomile are favorite for bedroom and Geranium, Lemongrass and Peppermint are suitable for insect-repellent.

In Vaporizers: A range of essential oil burners, made from clay, are available from health or aromatherapy related shops. Usually, a small candle is lit below a bowl containing 2-4 drops of essential oil added to the water. The candle's heat warms the bowl, and the essential oils evaporate, scenting the room. Do not let the water evaporate completely that the bowl may crack and cause fire. Keep away from children's hands.

Aromatic Bath: Essences can be added to the bath simply for pleasure, to aid restful sleep, to help skin problems, relieve muscular and other pains, or to subtly influence mood. Sprinkle four to eight drops of essential oil on to the water's surface after the bath has been drawn. Agitate the water to disperse the oil. If you add the essences whilst the water is running, much of the aromatic vapour will have evaporated before you get into the bath. If you have dry skin, you may with to mix the essences with a few teaspoonfuls of a vegetable base oil, such as sweet almond or jojoba, but only if you don't mind cleaning an oily bath afterwards. Neat essences never leave a greasy tide mark due to their tiny molecular structure. If you have irritate skin, do not use more than 2 drops in a bath.

Natural essential oil can be taken internally?

While some natural essential oils can be taken internally, it is important to use caution and follow safety guidelines. Not all essential oils are safe for internal consumption and improper use can lead to serious health risks.

Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts and can be toxic if not used properly. It's important to always use pure and natural essential oils that suitable for internal use. It's also recommended to consult with a healthcare professional, specially a qualified aromatherapist or doctor, before taking any essential oil internally, especially if you have any pre-existing health conditions or are taking any medications.

When using essential oils internally, it's important to use only very small amounts, typically no more than one to two drops. It's also important to keep in mind that not all essential oils are safe for internal use, for example, oils that are high in phenols, such as oregano, thyme, and clove, can be very harsh on the gut and should not be taken internally, also some oils such as wintergreen, camphor, and pennyroyal should not be taken internally as they are toxic in high doses.

It's always important to use caution and follow guidelines when using essential oils and to be aware of any potential risks or interactions with any medications you may be taking.

Storage guidelines & safety precautions.

Pure essential oils are highly volatile and evaporate easily. As heat, air, and light can affect the oils, they should be kept in dark glass bottles in normal to cool temperatures. Do NOT store essential oils in plastic bottles, as the oils can melt the plastic and become contaminated with petrochemical substances. Although some wood oils, such as sandalwood and rosewood, can improve with age, most oils slowly deteriorate and should be used within a couple of years after distillation. They can be stored in the bottom of the refrigerator to prolong their life. Some pure essential oils, such as rose otto, have a freezing point at refrigerator temperatures and will solidify, but don't worry, they will liquefy at room temperature without losing their therapeutic properties. Citrus oils should be used within a year due to their short shelf-life. Some oils are flammable, so keep them away from naked flames. Do not store on polished surfaces, as the oils can leave marks. Once the essential oils have been diluted in a carrier oil, the shelf life of the diluted oil is reduced to a few months.

Essential oils should always be diluted before using on the skin. It is possible to irritate the skin by using too strong a concentration of oil. The appropriate percentage of diluted essential oil is 3-5% for the body, 1-2% for facial care and sensitive areas, and below 1% for use with children or those with sensitive skin. To avoid possible irritation or allergic reactions, users should test for allergies by placing a drop of diluted essential oil (about 2.5%) on the inside of their wrist, covering it with a sticking plaster, and examining it after 12 hours. If there is any redness or itching, do not use that oil. If you have an adverse reaction to an oil, apply sweet almond or coconut carrier oil to the area, then wash with cold water.

Avoid using Pure Essential Oil during pregnancy, especially first 1-3 months.

It is generally recommended to avoid using certain essential oils during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester, because they can have an impact on hormone levels and can potentially cause contractions or other complications. Some essential oils, such as rosemary, sage, and juniper, can have a stimulating effect on the uterus and should be avoided during pregnancy. Additionally, certain essential oils, such as peppermint, can cause skin irritation and should be used with caution. It is always best to consult with a healthcare provider before using any essential oils during pregnancy.
