Explore the exciting frontier of natural self-care. Pure aromatherapy is the practice of using pure, natural plant oils, also called essential oils, for psychological and physical well-being. Derived straight from natures wisdom, they are naturally oxygenating and nourishing for the skin, blood and cells. Essential oils, the pure essence of a plant, have been found to provide both psychological, emotional and physical benefits when used correctly and safely.
Introducing essential oils into your lifestyle can be quite easy, fun, and therapeutically beneficial.
Below are a few ways in which you can get started with pure aromatherapy. These methods are intended as guidelines only, and please do pay special attention to all safety precautions applicable for each oil that you choose.
Massage – Add up to 20 drops of essential oil to 1 ounce carrier oil such as sweet almond oil and massage onto yourself, family member or partner.
Keep away from eyes and genital areas. Do not apply essential oils to the skin without first diluting them. Be sure to also read the safety data for the essential oils you choose to use.
Bath – Add 5-7 drops essential oil to 1~2 cups of Epsom Salts. Add this blend to your running bath water and mix well before getting into the tub.
General Household Freshening – Add a few drops of oil to your trash can, laundry wash, drain, vacuum bag filter, or on a tissue for placement in your drawers.
Easy Inhalation – Place 3-4 drops of essential oil on a tissue. Place the tissue near your nose and inhale. When trying an oil for the first time, use only one drop to ensure that you do not have a sensitivity or reaction to the oil. Steam Inhalation – Boil 2 cups of water. Pour the water into a bowl and add 3-7 drops of oil to the water. Use fewer drops if you are using an oil that may cause irritation to your mucous membranes (i.e. cinnamon, eucalyptus, rosemary, pine, thyme, cajuput, etc.). Place your nose about 12” away from the bowl and inhale the steam slowly and carefully. Stop immediately if you notice any irritation or discomfort. Steam inhalation can help reduce the symptoms associated with colds and influenza. Use of energizing or relaxing oils can also make this method useful any time of day or night.
