Ingredients (locally sourced whenever possible):
Extra Virgin Olive Oil*, Essential Oil of Lavender* (*indicates organic) Diluted to 7%. This blend is safe for everyone.
How to Use:
Aromatherapy, or the therapeutic use of essential oils, is powerful. So powerful in fact, it can harm you if you do not use them safely and properly. If it is powerful enough to heal, it can also harm.
Not all oils are safe for children, infants, immuno-compromised people, pregnant women, and the elderly. You should also never use essential oils topically on cats or birds.
Aromatherapy works by entering the bloodstream, and there are two effective ways to do that:
1. Inhalation. Gas exchange in the capillaries of the lungs ensure the fastest method of getting essential oils into your bloodstream. This can be done by inhaling directly from the package or by using a diffuser.
2. Topical application. Again, these are highly concentrated substances that need to be diluted before use. Not only are you throwing money away by applying essential oils undiluted, but you could be damaging the skin and liver. Our roll ons are already diluted to a therapeutic dose of 5%-10%.
PLEASE DO NOT INGEST essential oils. Ingestion is not only less effective in getting the constituents quickly into the bloodstream, it is also unsafe for the mucus membranes and liver (which they come into contact with in the digestive tract).
ALWAYS dilute your essential oils if they come in contact with your skin- in baths, in massages, in products. Or simply buy pre-diluted roll ons like these.
