How can I easily bring aromatherapy into my day to day life?

Click here to find out about each of our essential oils and what it is used for.

Here are just a few ideas for you to easily incorporate aromatherapy into yours and your family’s day to day life:

 

Radiator - Using Cotton Wool

Pop 2 drops of your chosen essential oil onto a cotton wool ball. Place on a warm radiator and the heat will help the oil to evaporate to fill your room with the aroma.

 

Radiator - Magnetic Oil Diffuser

 

 

 

Pop a few drops of your oil(s) into the diffuser and when the heating is on the aroma will fill the room.

Great for miserable winter mornings - put a warming/ uplifting oil in the diffuser and you will feel cheerier! (:

Make your own Air Freshener

 

 

 

Take a plastic spray bottle/spray gun. Fill it with water almost to the top.

Add a few drops of your chosen essential oil. Shake well. You now have your own synthetic-free air freshener. Do keep away from eyes though and don’t spray on the furniture!!

Baths

 

 

 

Add 2-3 drops of your chosen oil into the bath. Though the oil will not mix with the water the heat will vaporize the oil and release the wonderful aromas into the room. Lavender is especially great for this to help promote a good night’s sleep.

 

Cold Compresses to help sprains, bruising and hangovers! / Hot compresses for tummy aches and lower back aches

 

You can do this with hot or cold water. Fill a bowl with water and add 5-8 drops of your chosen oil. Stir the water. Soak a clean cotton flannel in the water for a few minutes. Wring the flannel out and apply to the affected area.

 

Inhalations

 

 

 

Fill a bowl with hot water and add 2-3 drops of your chosen oil. Lower your head over the bowl, but not too close that it burns or is uncomfortable. Place a towel over your head and breathe in the steam. Great for clearing congestion and to ease cold and flu symptoms.

 

Oil Burner

 

 

 

Add five or six drops of your chosen oil into the burner bowl. Light the tea light. The oil will evaporate.

**Please be careful with the naked flame and never leave unattended**

 

Aromastone

Plug in your Aromastone. Add five or six drops of your chosen oil into the ceramic dish. The oil will evaporate.
