in the bath…
Adults: 6-12 drops diluted in 2 tbsps vegetable oil (such as sweet almond oil) after bath is poured.
Children: 1-2 drops diluted in 2 tbsps vegetable oil after bath is poured.
as a body oil…
Adults: 12 drops per 25ml carrier oil such as sweet almond or grapeseed. (The number of ml of carrier oil divided by 2 gives the number of drops of essential oil to be added to the carrier oil. This yields 3% essential oil in 97% carrier oil.)
Children: 3-4 drops per 25ml carrier oil. This is 1% essential oil in 99% carrier oil.
Always check sensitivity to oils by preparing the correct dilution for adult or child and then apply small amount to a part of the arm. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. The above directions for preparing essential oils are general only; individuals with very sensitive skin may want to try 1% dilutions.
6-8 drops essential oil to 25 ml of carrier oil
10 drops in 1000ml water. Ring cloth out and place on area, or for lavender only: 2-3 drops undiluted oil on gauze, place on area and wrap with plastic. Duration of compress: 20-60 min.
10 drops in basin of hot water. Place towel overhead, lean over basin & inhale for 10 min, up to 3 x per day.
20 drops of essential oil to 200 ml water
Potpourri pot filled with water add 3-5 drops of oil. Oils evaporate quickly so replace drops when scent fades.
A few drops on tissue and tuck in pillowcase or in final rinse of wash. Oils may also be added in lotions, shampoos etc. Create your own uses.
