Modes of Application

Hot compresses:
Hot compresses can be used for migraine headaches, sinus headaches and sore muscles. Recommended oils are rosewood, peppermint and neroli. To prepare a hot compress, add a few drops of oil to a bowl of very hot water. Soak a clean cloth or bandage in the water. Wring out excess water, and place the cloth over affected area. Repeat this step as often as necessary.

Hot Bath:
A hot bath with four to six drops of oil will not only help soothe skin and relieve mucus buildup in the lungs but will also relax the mind and body and relieve tension. Recommended oils are rosemary, grapefruit, and sandalwood. Hot Bath with essential oils can have profound effects on the healing of skin disorders, alleviating muscular aches and pains, enhancing respiratory functions, reducing levels of stress, as well as increasing and supporting blood and lymph circulation.

Aromatherapy Massage:
An aromatherapy massage relieves tension and stress in the body. Recommended oils for a body massage are rosemary, basil, cedarwood, lemon and sandalwood.

Steam Inhalation:
Steam inhalation helps to clear the lungs and sinuses of congestion and infection. This method will affect the respiratory and blood supply immediately. Bring 2 cups of water to boil, reduce heat and let water cool for 5-10 minutes. Add 2-5 drops of essential oil (or a combination of 2-3 essential oils). Inhale vapors for 5-10 minutes. You can also place a towel over your head to increase concentration. Inhalations can be used 2-3 times a day in treatment of specific respiratory disorders. Recommended oils for steam inhalation are grapefruit, cinnamon, eucalyptus and tea tree oil.

NOTE: If you are using an essential oil for the first time, be sure to do a skin patch test, to avoid any allergic reaction. To test, put a drop of oil on a cotton ball and apply it to the inside of the arm, the back of your wrist or under the arm. Place a band aid over the patch and leave for 24 hours. If there is a reaction, such as itching or redness, do not continue to use.
