Essential oils are natural - distilled from herbs/flowers/spices etc.
Pure essential oils are potent and should be used with care. Always dilute with a carrier oil and NEVER EVER use neat. Some books do recommend using neat, we however would like to advise against this as you skin will sensitise over a period of time. We refer to essential oils as Natures' Perfumery as essential oils can alleviate your mood - naturally.
Essential oils are grouped into 3 notes - top - middle - base.
- Top : evaporates quickly
- Middle : lingers a bit
- Base : anchors the scent
We advise against the use of drops of essential oil and recommend that you weigh your essential oil before use. A 10ml bottle of essential oil can be enough to scent 1 litre of fluid.
