Why not try one of our pure essential oil blends, especially formulated to smell great and have specific therapeutic value. They can be used in exactly the same way as individual essential oils. For example diluted in a carrier (cream, oil, or gel); in an essential oil burner or diffuser; or by mixing a few drops with a teaspoon of honey and adding to your bath. If diluting in a carrier use 5 drops per 10ml of a fragrance-free base oil or cream.
Essential oil blends can be absorbed into the body in several ways, depending on how they’re used. Applied topically diluted in a carrier oil, cream, or gel they are absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. When aromatic molecules are inhaled they are absorbed via the lungs into the bloodstream. When aromatic molecules are detected by sensory nerve endings in the nose messages are transmitted via the olfactory nerve to the brain. There they can have a therapeutic effect on the nervous or endocrine (hormonal) systems.
