Essential Oils: How do I use them?

Recommended uses of various organic essential oils and organic base oils By Dr Axe please click here 


MASSAGE

Massage with the use of essential oils is deeply relaxing, refreshing and improves your well being.
Add 10-15 drops of essential oil to 20 ml of NHR Organic Oils base oil or (40-70 drops to a 100ml) and massage it into the whole body or localised area. You can use a single essential oil or mix two or more together, to suit your condition. Or try using one of our synergistically blended massage oils for a truly nourishing and uplifting experience.
 
BATHS

Baths are one of the easiest and most pleasurable ways of using essential oils.
Just add 5-10 drops to a table spoon of either base oil, honey or milk, and then pour into your bath when it has finished running, stirring the water to mix the oils in.  For maximum benefit soak for at least 10 minutes. Try lighting a candle and take a few gentle deep breaths to enhance the relaxing and revitalising experience that these oils will create. After your bath apply one of NHRís ready blended massage oils on your body to prolong the benefits of the bath and nourish and moisturise your skin.

STEAM INHALATION

Place 3-6 drops of Breathe-Easy, NHRís special mixture of pure essential oils, or an essential oil of your choice, in about one pint of boiling water.
Cover your head with a towel and breath in the steam for a few minutes. Repeat 2-4 times daily.
This process of taking the essential oil directly into your nose, throat and chest has strong antibacterial, antiviral and soothing effects.
 
ROOM BURNERS

You can create whatever atmosphere you want in your home or work place by using candle burners or light bulb rings.
Rosemary, for example, helps mental concentration (good for exams), while Bergamot is uplifting and Lavender is relaxing. See order form for details of products available.

PERFUME

Essential oils and floral waters make beautiful perfumes.
Unlike the man-made perfumes bought from shops, essential oils are natural and have a more attractive aroma as well as a therapeutic and reviving effect.
Always dilute essential oils before use, see massage instructions.

SKIN AND HAIR CARE

Essential oils added to your creams, lotions and shampoos will enhance their therapeutic actions and leave your skin and hair looking healthy and vibrant.
Mix 20-30 drops of essential oil to 50ml of shampoo and 10 -20 drops for 50 ml of cream or lotions.

BABIES AND CHILDREN

(see also Floral Waters).
Children and babies can benefit greatly by using NHR pure essential oils and floral waters. When using essential oils to massage children, or in their baths, it is always important to dilute them in an NHR blended base oil, or vegetable oil first.
Use lower dilution: for children 5-10 drops, for babies 2-4 drops of essential oil per 20ml of NHR base oil. Floral waters are a very good alternative to essential oils to use with children and babies, since they are already diluted and no cautions are needed. Floral waters have similar effects to essential oils but are more gentle.
 
FLORAL WATERS
 
HOW DO I USE FLORAL WATERS?

Use 5-10 ml as face cleanser or pour in bath.
Floral waters are a very good alternative to essential oils to use in many situations. For example, you can use them:
  • As a face cleanser.
  • With children and babies as floral waters are so safe and mild. 
  • In hot or cold compresses. 
  • As a skin moisturiser and cleanser. 
  • As a refreshing body lotion. 
  • An ideal present for both men and women 
  • In your bath. 
  • In food and cooking. Many people use floral waters in their cooking to create exotic and delicious flavours.
  • As a drink for their therapeutic qualities.
