Aromatherapy is a complementary natural therapy using essential oils. It embraces the notion of life force, whole organic food, good air, and a healthy lifestyle. It is a universal and abundant therapy that revitalises the mind, body, and spirit. We love aromatherapy here at Synthesis Organics and our founder is a qualified aromatherapist, so feel free to reach out to us with any of your aromatherapy questions. Here are some of the ways you can use aromatherapy in your daily life:
Vapourizingadd 6-8 drops of essential oil to water in a vapouriser. Apply heat, breathe deeply and enjoy the benefits.
Bathingadd 5 drops of essential oil to hot water and agitate the surface, then immerse and enjoy.
Showercover the plughole in your shower with a face cloth, dispense 5 drops onto the shower basin and shower as normal, breathing in the steam to be energised.
Spritzadd 2 drops of essential oil to a spray bottle of 100ml water. Shake and then mist your face and body with your eyes closed. Enjoy the sensation.
Compressadd 3-6 drops of essential oil in 200ml of water. Soak a washcloth, then press it into the face.
Massage / MoisturiserBody massage - we recommend 10 drops of essential oils per 20ml of massage oil. This will give you a 2.5% dilution, which is suitable for an all over body massage. Facial massage - Use 5 ml (that is a teaspoon) of massage oil and add 1 to 2 drops of essential oil. *halve dose for children and halve again for infants and when pregnant. More on this in upcoming blogs :)
Personalised Oil BlendYou can create an intuitive blend by closing your eyes and smelling each oil to feel which your body responds to. It is best to choose just 3 oils. Add a drop of each and smell, then keep adding to get the combination you like. Write down the recipe. Put the cap on and shake to blend. To use: Pump a small amount into your palms and rub together to warm and spread the oil. Massage, using long soothing strokes, into freshly cleansed skin until absorbed.
Important note on the quality of essential oils:Essential oils are graded according to their purity, quality and composition. In choosing to use only the purest unadulterated form of these essential oils in our products, we ensure that the therapeutic constituents are there to benefit the body and mind on so many levels.
