Epsom salts are made up of a naturally occurring mineral that is found in water. More properly known as magnesium sulfate.
Massages : Essential oils should never be used directly on the skin, they should always be mixed with carrier oils such as Almond oil, Grape seed oil, Apricot oil and Evening Primrose oil.
They should be diluted in the ratio of 5 to 20 drop of essential oil to 100 ml of carrier /base oil. Different essential oils have different properties.
Baths : Add 7 to 10 drops of essential oil to the bath water and enjoy a relaxing and refreshing bath.
Vaporization : A vaporizer / diffuser is used for this purpose. Water is put into the cup and a few drops of essential oil is added. A candle or oil wick is lit under the cup and the vapors of the essential oil spread into the room spreading a beautiful aroma
