- Add 4-6 drops per 4 ounces of unscented lotion and stir well. Use in massage cream, lotion, or oil or body lotions (the purer the ingredients, the more you will be able to smell and enjoy the therapeutic qualities of the essential oil). Favorite scents are lavender, citrus, patchouli, and rose for a lovely smelling lubricant. Try essential oils like rosemary or tea tree for toning the skin.
- Add 4-6 drops to a 4 oz. cobalt glass spray bottle filled with distilled or filtered water and 1/8 teaspoon of witch hazel, rubbing alcohol or vodka (vodka has the least smell) for a great room or linen spray.
- Add a few drops to a nebulizer or humidifier to disperse the aroma throughout your room.
- Put about 6 drops of eucalyptus essential oil in a pot of boiling water to steam clogged sinuses (extra caution must be used to prevent steam burns or spilling the hot water).
Precautions and contra-indications are listed on the individual pages of the Wyndmere Essential Oils that are available on the MassageMarket.com website. Always ask your client or friends if they are allergic to anything before using essential oils. (Note that a lot of people think that they are allergic or sensitive to certain scents because they have experienced the synthetic or "perfumy" version of the oils; honor this first and then, if the person is willing, allow them to try the essential oil with a short exposure to it (smelling the oil in the bottle or the lubricant with which it is blended.) Never apply essential oils directly to the skin or mucous membranes. Always dilute in a carrier oil, cream or lotion to apply oils topically.
