How to Use Your Aromatherapy Blend

As Wee Sally's resident aromatherapist, I can create a vast arrangement of blends to suit your needs. Aromatherapy has been used for thousands of years, and has a vast variety of applications. I can make your very own blend for use in a treatment for £5, or 5mL vial of essential and carrier oils to take home for the same price.

* Use in an essential oil burner. 1/3 of your blended oil bottle to 30mL of water should do the trick.

* Rub on a lightbulb! For a quick burst of scent, rub a few drops of oil directly into a low-wattage bulb.

* To cure dry feet and cracked heels, apply your oil to the soles of your feet before bedtime. Pop on a pair of cotton socks, and you'll wake up with super-soft tootsies! This also works with hands and cotton gloves: a lifesaver in winter.

* Use your oil blend on dry cuticles or elbows. Apply using small, light,  circular motions. I use sweet almond oil as a carrier base, an oil known for its deep moisturising capabilities.

*The essential oils we have in the clinic can be specially blended for your skin type. Use as part of a home facial treatment. (FYI: Rose water is also an excellent toner. Health food stores and some pharmacies usually stock it.)

*Pop a little oil on your temples or between the brows and press for 20 seconds. Breathe in and out deeply as you do so. This is a great de-stressor, and is particularly effective if you are using oils that are known for their headache-banishing properties, such as peppermint, eucalyptus, tea-tree or orange.

* Give your loved one a foot massage in front of the telly. This never fails to impress!

So there you have it, a small selection of uses for your blended oil. Pop in today and I can make you up your own 10mL blend to take home, or add an aromatherapy blend onto your treatment.
