Advice for use

Here are some examples of use 


Use by diffusionA very popular scent with children (and adults), orange essential oil will work wonders when diffused in the bedroom, to calm restless minds and promote sleep, while purifying the air. Diffuse 30 minutes in the bedroom before bedtime and between 30 minutes and 1 hour in the living rooms to purify the atmosphere.

Use in the bathEssential oils are not soluble in water, so they must be mixed with an emulsifier before being poured into the bath. For example, they can be mixed with a liquid soap, a neutral shampoo (1 tablespoon) or our Solubol® dispersant. As a general rule, it is recommended not to exceed 10 drops per bath and not to stay in the bath for more than 20 minutes. Dispersing 4 to 5 drops of orange essential oil in a hot bath will invigorate and relax.

An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.

Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
