Today’s Aromatherapy Tip of the Day: November 10, 2013 is Methods of Use.
METHODS OF USE
We have discussed many ‘Methods of Use’ already, but we are going to discuss them again for spiritual practices. First of all, you need to know that any objects used in the process of making a spiritual connection, such as, bottles, bowls, candles, and diffusers, should be reserved for that purpose only. They should be set apart from those used in physical healing or environmental fragrancing. The objects used for spiritual practices should be aesthetically pleasing and treasured.
User’s Guide: Use 1 teaspoon of your essential oil blend.
User’s Guide: Run the bath, then add 8 to 10 drops of your essential oil blend and swish it around.
Method: Body Oils
User’s Guide: Use 1 ounce of your essential oil blend for a whole body massage.
Method: Aroma Lamps, Diffusers, Oil Burners
User’s Guide: Fill the bowl portion with water, then add 3 to 5 drops of your essential oil blend. Add a tea light candle for heat, if needed. Some are electric and will not need a candle. For a diffuser, heat your water before placing it in the diffuser, then add 3 to 5 drops of your essential oil blend if your diffuser is small. If using a large diffuser, you may add 10 to 15 drops of your blend.
Next time we will discuss more Methods of Use.
