How to Use Aromatherapy

Essential oils are absorbed through the skin or when inhaled, and high quality oils have gentle, positive effects on your moods and emotions.

A few drops in your bath, in unscented body lotions or oils, and in aromatherapy diffusers can help you relax or feel energized, depending on the oil.

Below are a few ways to use essential oils and suggestions for oils known to be effective for menopause symptoms that you may want to try for yourself.

Aromatherapy is one of many ways you can improve your troublesome menopause challenges. To learn which healthy lifestyle choices will improve your experience of menopause, consult with a menopause expert.

To Use:

For best effect, buy only the best quality essential oils. Protect the bottle from light and heat. Keep tightly closed and out of reach of children. The oils are highly concentrated and could harm a child if swallowed.

General Cautions: Do not take internally or use undiluted on skin except as indicated! Use half as many drops on children and the elderly. Use only as indicated. Do not use during pregnancy.

Relaxation – Add 6-8 drops lavender or geranium essential oil to an aromatherapy diffuser or bowl of hot water.

Insomnia – A comforting bedtime ritual is to place one or two drops of lavender or geranium essential oil on either end of your pillowslip to help you drift off to sleep.

Massage oil – Add 8-10 drops essential oil of your choice (5 drops thyme oil) to 1 tbsp (15 ml) sweet almond, grapeseed, apricot, fractionated coconut oil or even olive oil to make a hand, foot or body massage oil.

Increase Mental Alertness/Sanitize a Room – Use diffuser method above or add 20 drops: eucalyptus, thyme or ti-tree to a 50 ml atomizer and fill with purified or spring water. Shake before spraying in room (Avoid wooden surfaces).
