Aromatherapy

Essential oils are distilled from flowers, plant leaves, seeds, roots, resins, barks, or are extracted from the rinds of citrus fruits. To make one pound of essential oil, it takes almost 50 pound of plant material, but to make a single pound of oil, it takes 2,300 pounds of rose flowers. Essentials oils do not contain fatty acids, and hence are not susceptible to rancidity. However it is important to store them in dark, tightly sealed glass bottles, and away from light, air, heat and heat sources. If essential oils are properly stored, they can maintain their quality and essence for years.

Essential oils are highly concentrated, hence they need handling with caution and care. When using the essential oils, always read the warnings and instructions carefully. Keep the bottles out of reach of children, and secure them tightly. If using for cooking, use the oils that are approved for food use and never consume them undiluted. Dilute the oils with carrier oil for using on the skin. Test the oil on a small patch of skin, and dilute before using on the inner arm. Discontinue the use if irritation or redness occurs. Basil, bitter almond, hyssop, clove bud, juniper berry, sweet fennel, peppermint, myrrh, marjoram, sage, rosemary, rose, thyme, and wintergreen essential oils must be avoided during pregnancy. Tea tree, Melissa, lemon, sweet fennel, clove bud, cinnamon leaf, basil, lemon grass wintergreen, peppermint and cinnamon bark oils are especially irritating to the skin. Essential oils can be used for body care, and you can treat your skin to the benefits of chamomile, lavender, geranium, rosemary and sandalwood by adding the desired fragrance in the bottle of your favorite skin cleanser, moisturizer or toner. A teaspoon of Chamomile or rosemary oils can be added to the bottle of shampoo or conditioner. Add half tsp of lavender and rosemary oils to four ounces of jojoba oil and apply to the hair and scalp in the night. Wash thoroughly next morning and enjoy the highlights and extra body that essential oils give. It is also easy to blend the massage oils. Just combine your favorite scent with the vegetable base oil such as grape-seed, sweet almond or apricot kernel.

The lavender essential oil is extremely useful, and for many centuries, it has given some wonderful remedies to treat skin disorders. Of several lavender species, English lavender is considered the finest one. It is very useful to get rid of problems of rashes and acne.

You need to mix the lavender oil in water, and pat gently using a cotton ball. Lavender oil is great for taking care of the skin, and also helps get a sound sleep in the night.

Lavender essential oil is extensively used in aromatherapy to massage body and release stress. It offers several benefits and therapeutic gains.
