It is best to dilute essential oil in a carrier oil (i.e. Grapeseed) if you intend to prepare a massage oil. Don't use essential oils neat on your skin. Start with less & increase essential oil until you have desired strength. Alternatively, use only 4 drops of each oil on a tissue, in the bath or dripped onto a radiator or sink. The oils will evaporate naturally & so you can also remove the cap to diffuse the fragrance into a room.
For external use only, avoid contact with eyes. Do not use on children, or when pregnant or while using medication. Keep out of reach of children. An essential oil should not be used instead of seeing a doctor for medical advice. Never self prescribe & if in doubt please ask your doctor. Do not use on sensitive skin & always do a small test of the oil before use. The Jasmine and Blue Lotus oils contain Sweet Almond Oil which is a Nut. If an allergic reaction occurs, wash off the oil with soap & water, then seek medical attention.
We now use new 10ml green glass bottles.
These bottles are designed for pharmaceutical use, they are impact resistant but care should be taken with glass bottles on hard surfaces. The bottles weigh 23.5 grams and all bottles come with 10ml (equiv. of 10 grams) of content. Each bottle with lid weighs around 36 grams total.
A dropper cap is inside the bottle for easy usage, this can be removed if you need the oil to drip quicker.
Usually within 12 months of purchase. Some will last longer & some scents mature with age.
You will find a full guide to the oils at the back of the book we include with the order. You can also read our beginners guide to essential oils here on our blog.
