Everything you need to get started in aromatherapy!
There are many ways to use essential oils that go beyond diffusing, or applying topically using a carrier oil. EOs can be used in salves, soaps, sprays, scrubs and much more. When creating these essential oil infused products for DIYs, we at EG typically use the same ingredients. Rather than buying necessary items with each new DIY project, we decided to release our list of aromatherapy essentials you might need for future DIYs.
A carrier is anything that dilutes an essential oil. Carriers are necessary in creating essential oil products for topical use.
Butter (Shea, Cocoa, Kombo, etc.)
Wax (Bees, Soy, Carnauba, etc.)
Everyone has bowls and measuring cups, which are essential in making aromatherapy products, but what about these materials…?
Glass Stirring Rods
Once you’ve created your product or blend, put it in the container that suits it best. Is it an allergy blend? Add it to a stock bottle and apply a few drops to a personal inhaler. Lotions can be easily used when in jars and hopefully you know where sprays go.
Lip Balm Tubes
