It is often paired with massages and other body indulgences and uses a variety of natural oils UK for the treatment.

Fortunately, getting into it for the first time will have a very short learning curve. Here is all you need to know to get started into using aromatherapy oils UK to feel relief and relaxation, stat!

Aromatherapy oil. Easy Done Right

Aromatherapy oils UK are administered in three ways: through inhalation, ingestion or by topical application on the skin. Each way has different methods; for example, if you choose to apply argan oil UK topically you can do it by direct application with your hands, by spraying it lightly or adding it to your bath.

Choosing the way of application will largely depend on the type of essential oil you will use and the effect you want to achieve. For example, if you want to clear your nasal passage you will probably want to use eucalyptus oil – an aromatherapy oil that is known for its minty aroma – in a diffuser from which you will inhale. To make things easy, let’s start with one method of administering as this is easier and less invasive than the other two: inhalation.Breathe In, Breath Out (And Relax)Inhaling essential oils is a very popular way of administering it for relaxation. But distressing does not always mean unscrewing the cap and taking a good, long snort at the oil!

Here are some ways of gently (yet effectively) inhaling essential oils:

  •  Using a diffuser: You can put several drops of aromatherapy oil into a diffuser (sometimes it is mixed with some water, for a longer burning time or to dilute the scent) and the scent is diffused in the air with heat.
  •  Dry evaporation: If you do not have a diffuser (or want a less tedious way of diffusing it), you can place several drops on a tissue or cotton ball. Place it in the area where you rest or most often are, and you will be able to inhale the scent as it evaporates. To make it more intense, you can directly sniff the cotton ball itself.
  •  Spray: A mixture of essential oils and water can be stored in a spray bottle, too. You can spray all around your room to distribute the scent whether you want to make the room more relaxing (lavender) or you want to stimulate a sense of alertness (citrus oils).
  • Steaming: A couple of drops of aromatherapy essential oils into a bowl filled with steaming water make for an instant vaporizer. Just place your head over the bowl and cover it with a towel for a potent dose of the oil’s healing powers.

Try out these methods of inhalation with your desired essential oils and remember – the fun is in figuring out which ones are your favorites!
