Q: I would slightly dilute the essential oils for my diffuser that are sometimes too strong. what can I take as a product ?
R: Especially no water. Since water is not impaired with essential oils, it could obstruct the nozzle from the diffusion, or in any case disrupt the diffusion. idem with vegetable oil, it might butcher your glassware. essential oils must always be used pure, undiluted and uncut. The best thing is to mix these oils too strong to other essential oils that will reduce them. citrus fruits such as lemon or orange usually reduce the strong smell of essential oil. has you to find the right percentages between each oil.
Otherwise, limit the ranges of diffusion. 2 to 3 diffusion assignments from 15 to 20 minutes per day are sufficient.
Otherwise, the solution of the natural dispersion for essential oils remains. the alcoholic formula Dispair Ladrôme, fully vegetable, has been developed for the use of aqueous phase oils. I have never tested in a diffuser, but since this product contains vegetable oil, I do not have the guarantee that it works at 100. %.
Q: I treated the warts (on the feet and covered with a dressing) of my son with thuya gasoline. Is it possible that during the night with the windows closed, the gasoline made him sick? fever, vomiting, stomachache ?
R: Essential oil of thuya is prohibited for sale outside pharmacies for the simple reason that it is a classified essential oil dangerous and toxic what the pharmacist should have told you when you bought it. it contains other thujone; It is therefore necessary to avoid using it on a child and especially pure. Now, it may not have a relationship but in doubt, I advise you not to do it again. Contraindications: babies, young children, pregnant women. (reasonably neurotoxic, abortive, to use with extreme caution internally).
Q : in provence this summer I bought a diffuser of aromas ms 803 s . What is the principle? Are oils heated or nebulized? certain oils should not be used pure; What's going on with them? is it better to make the diffuser work 4 times a quarter of an hour as marked on the leaflet or 10 times 5 minutes for a scented atmosphere, more often ?
R: The principle is an air pump that nebulizes essential oils like a perfume or garden spray! essential oils must always be used pure undiluted uncut. those that are too strong like thyme or mint must be mixed with other essential oils; much is used for this citrus fruit. We have 15 ready-to-use mixtures. the device can work vacuum without problem it will just send air. It depends on the volume and essential oils used, but it is best to diffuse often and little, it is much more efficient and economical in essential oils. The brain after a certain time no longer perceiving the smells you have to stop spreading. testing is necessary to find the time of diffusion and the time of pause.
Q: Your essential oils are biochemically and botanically defined hebbd.
R: Hebbd is the minimum to be entitled (north afnor) to mark "essential oil" on a bottle. any serious laboratory sells essential oils hebbd. hebbd is a name that has no legal reference, it is just the laboratory that guarantees but without any external control to verify that it is true. under external control you only have organic essential oils that must respect a specifications with regular audit of the laboratory. our essential oils are of course biochemically and botanically defined with most certified organic by certipacq and in prime the nature logo and progress (2nd external control)

Q : I just bought one of your broadcasters at the kine show and I am very surprised at the price difference. Already last year I found the diffusers or kits particularly expensive but when I look at your site there is a very clear difference, could you tell me if it's normal when you're at the kine trade fair.
R: You have many shops and companies that sell our broadcasters, selling prices being free so you can find the same products with important differences. Moreover, it is necessary to know that a stand in a professional living room is quite expensive and that the person who exposes must be able to return to their costs (stand, travel, accommodation, etc.). It is therefore often normal that products sold on the internet are cheaper (very high competition, reduced fee). in our case, we apply lower margins on our products and play on the quantity.

Take in several to change and not get tired.

Q: Can we use an electric diffuser with a 4-month baby? and what oils do you recommend ?
R: One can use a diffuser in a house with a baby, but one must avoid spreading in his room when it is present, it is a matter of volume of air and quantity of essential oils, it should not breathe pure essential oils but a mixture of air and essential oils, leaving time to essential oils to mix with air (a dozen minutes). for essential oils you have the choice: in the most common, grapefruit, orange, tangerine, lavender, camomile, rose wood, geranium, ravensare, tea tree
What is the difference between Aroma-feel and the olia ?
R: The principle between broadcasters is totally different. the olia works by micro-diffusion, that is to say that all essential oils are sent into the air in the form of a fog; it allows to cover surfaces up to 100 m2. Aroma-feel is a ventilation process. only the lightest molecules are sent into the air in the form of perfume. It is rather intended for small pieces. only micro-diffusion models allow to enjoy the benefits of essential oils in the sense aromatherapy. ventilation models are rather perfume diffusers. Moreover, the aroma-feel uses felts that you will need to change every time you change essential oils.

However, you have to monitor that you do not have a reaction to these essential oils, redness type. the most indicated is the evening after cleaning your skin just before bedtime, for 2 to 3 weeks if you want to continue, wait a few weeks to resume treatment. if the result is not satisfactory we have creams and milks that are very effective for this type of treatment; you will find them in our category facial care.

Q: I read that we should not use pure essential oils but that we should always mix them with a vegetable oil or sweet almond, what do you think? I have another question, I have very often migraines, is it effective to put 2 drops of lavender oil into honey, it quickly relieves headaches. I read that it was dangerous to use essential oils in internal use, what do you think ?
R: Many essential oils can be used pure in massage but it depends on many parameters such as the agressivity of essential oil, its own tolerance, the amount used, .. it is for this reason that it is best to use essential oils mixed with vegetable oil when you do not control the subject. the origin of a migraine may depend on many factors, it is possible that lavender relieves a type of migraine of nerve origin for example. It is no more dangerous to use essential oils in internal use than medicines but like them, it requires a good knowledge of the properties of essential oils as well as counter-indications the dosages. essential oils are plant concentrates and therefore in all cases must be handled carefully.
Q: I have a slight immunodepression and according to the aromatherapy guide, niaouli in association with the ravensare seems effective for their antiviral and antiseptic properties.

I thank you for your diligence.
R: It's a very good choice. the revensare as niaouli are essential oils very powerful in the fight against viruses. Niaouli is generally used externally, although some doctors prescribe it internally, on the other hand the ravensare can be used given its very good tolerance both internally and externally. Niaouli must be handled with greater care it is not recommended to pregnant women and children. your other questions are medical and we are not sufficiently competent or empowered to answer you.

Q : officinal lavender - wild rosemary - odorant geranium - peppermint - thyme (linalol) can I use these oils internally by putting a drop in fruit juice ?
R: These essential oils are usable in internal use. with 1 drop, there is no problem, except if allergy. However, essential oils are not soluble, so they will float on fruit juice, to dilute them you need to use solvents like alcohol for example in a 1/10 min report or then our natural dispersant disp'arôme.
Q : I need to change the glassware of my air 8000 silencer, can you tell me the amphore glassware that you sell will be adapted ?

Q: Following various purchases on the net, I was able to see visus that the bottles at the price so attractive were not filled only with fresh almond oil, but with other ingredients. Can you tell me if this practice is common ?
R: I'm sorry, but I don't know what to answer. It's probably about products imported from asia. lately, we found essential lavender oil from the indes! It is important to know that in these products, the labour force represents a large part of the price and wages are not the same as in europe and especially in france, we must not forget that the work of children is also widespread in this part of the globe. Now these products can also be of very good quality but it must be borne in mind that if the pesticide regulation is relatively strict in europe all these countries have no regulations and they recover more or less all prohibited products in other countries. There are also large areas of essential oils at unbeatable prices, but when you can decipher the label it is indicated 90% alcohol 10% essential oil ! So you have to stay very attentive when buying.

Is that enough for my room? Is he silent ?
R: The Eolia-mini diffuser has an on/off button but no flow adjustment, it is an economical and robust but noisy model (old generation) compared to the newer models. On the other hand, it would be enough for your piece in terms of coverage.
Q: Do you know an essential oil or a synergy of essential oils that allow to erase or mitigate the kernels ?
R: Attention, the use of essential oils near the eyes is to be taken with great care. you can use a Roman chamomile floral water. this hydrolat is perfectly suited to reduce the kernels or calm the red eyes. otherwise, do not hesitate to consult our abedary care for essential oils
Q : we have a diffuser for several years of type rena 101 for an area of 25 m2 and a power of 5 w.

Q: Can you tell me if the he1001 model is silent because I have a model approaching that I find noisy.
R: The he1001 is part of the old generation of broadcaster with a very excellent performance/price ratio but I would lie if I said it is silent. at the performance level, the olia is about equal to the he1001, but much quieter. The last generations of 12v transfo diffusers are now much quieter!!
Q: a pity for the switch on the model I chose it means that it must always be unplugged? What happens if we forget to unplug it ?

R: A few millimeters are enough for the diffuser to work. count 15 to 20 drops minimum. any diffuser equipped with a glassware should work with this quantity. for consumption, it is necessary to foresee from 1 to 2 ml / hour following the model.
Q: Can we massage essential oils to a safe baby ?
R: Yes, you can, but you have to stay very careful with the use of essential oils on children under 5 years of age. Because their skin is very fragile, you have to choose essential oils such as rosewood or camomile and dilute them strongly.
Q: I would like to make essential oils at home can you tell me how to proceed. Thank you
R: The principle is the same as to make alcohol. a minute coconut, a serpentine cools and a glass to collect, it takes water in the coconut we put the plants in the basket above the water and we make the water boil the easiest to start is lavender. Be careful, we do not improvise distiller overnight. It is a real trade and there is a number of precautions to take into account.
Q: I am looking for essential oil of millepertuis for massage of the back have you? What price? And how do I get it ?
R: We have no essential oil of millepertuis. I don't think it exists. On the other hand, you will find this plant as an oily macera (milepertuis flowers macerated in a vegetable oil, olive most of the time).
Q: you have a very light he - or rather very fluid - that would be added to a he (or mixture) to make it more fluid and thus have a better diffusion. because I also noticed that, when the he is viscous, it spreads badly. I tried alcohol, but the smell is very strong.
R: An essential oil used in diffusion should not be mixed with anything else. it must be used pure, without addition. As you know, during a distillation, it is recovered in a container with an aqueous phase above which they float. So water doesn't work at all. In terms of alcohol, it must be used only in the maintenance of the appliance but in no case broadcast. essential oils a little viscous, thick or sticky are less diffused. The lavender can rather dilute to correct the appearance (especially the thickness), but by doing this, you will obviously no longer be on pure diffusion of the original oil. Finally, the dispersants only allow to solubilize essential oil in the water. This allows the use of he in aqueous phase (in the bath, ingestion in drinks, etc.). but, this product, designed with an alcoholic formula, should not be used either to make diffusion.
