Our Jojoba Oil and Sweet Almond Oil are excellent organic carrier oils that can be used for massage by themselves, or as an organic carrier oil for pure essential oil blends. Adding essential oils gives the carrier oil an aroma which has a positive impact upon your health, depending on your choice of oils.
IMPORTANT: Please follow all safety precautions and do not use aromatherapy as a substitute for proper medical treatment.
Mixing your essential oil blends
Mix your blend well in a dark coloured glass bottle by gentling rolling the bottle between your hands. You may wish to increase the quantity by multiplying your blend by 4 or 5 times so you can use it several times.
Add the blend to your diffuser in the quantity advised according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This would usually be 5 or 6 drops.
For a relaxing soak in the bath, add 10 drops of your blend to the bath water after you have finished running the bath and prior to getting in the bath. You can also, with most essential oils, add the oils directly to the bath water. In this situation you would add 6 drops of your choice of essential oils directly to the bath water after you have finished running the bath. Adding both the essential oil and the carrier oil means you benefit from the nourishing effects of the carrier oil.
Mix the required amount (usually 15 to 20 drops) of your blend into your favourite homemade bath salt recipe.
Our Jojoba Oil and Sweet Almond Oil can be mixed with 100% essential oils to create your own blends, tailored specially to enhance your lifestyle. Mix your blend with 50ml of Jojoba Oil or 50ml Sweet Almond Oil.
