How To Use
For the bath
For the most amazing experience, massage a few drops of oil onto your décolletage, arm and shoulder and then step into a warm bath, taking a deep inhale. Or run a bath and add a 10-12 drops or about a 1/4 a cap (5mls) to running water. The oil is highly concentrated so a little goes a long way.
For the shower
Shower normally and they add a few drops into the palm of your hands, take a mindful breath and inhale the wonderful scent before applying the oil to your neck and arms. The oil will turn into a milky consistency when it touches the water, leaving you moisturised but without a greasy film after your shower.
Not recommended during pregnancy due to high concentrations of essential oils.
