One of the best ways to fully enjoy aromatherapy air diffusion is the ultrasound mist diffuser (available in our shop). It does not alter the oil and allows efficient and rapid dissemination.
In the case of air diffusion by heating the oil with a candle or flame, do not put pure. Indeed, upon completion fluid, the bottom will burn and there you can forget the good desired odor. In addition, by heating, the essential oil will boil and be completely denatured. Prefer, in this case, the file in a little water. It does not mix but will warm more slowly.
Do not mix water indoor fountains with essential oil as a recipe for disaster. There are perfume bottles water specially adapted to this use (see our online store)
Mix the oils.
As we have already announced, you have to mix essential oils with vegetable oils for use on the skin. DO NOT USE PURE oil (except air diffusion course). We advise you to follow the dosages recommended by the various aromatherapy recipes you will find. A wrong dosage might not have the desired effect or be too strong.

Moreover, in most cases, it will be just a few drops. Do not increase the dosage by yourself. If you read 5 drops is 5 drops.
“Essential oils are mostly counter, this is not to say that there is no danger of self-medication”. The terms “natural medicine”, “alternative medicine”, “natural” or “organic” are not necessarily synonymous with harmless! “Exactly, essential oils are they harmless?” Essential oils are very powerful and very active substances, it is the concentrated power of the aromatic plant, so do not overdo the doses, regardless of the route of exposure, as any substance is potentially toxic at a high dose or repeated.
