The potential benefits of these individual essential oils includes supporting the immune system, wounds, and promoting respiratory health. These pure, organic essential oils are highly concentrated, and designed to be used in room diffusers, or diluted in carrier oils if used topically.
Five Givers Essential Oil Blend can be used in a diffuser to help keep the air clear of bacteria and microbes. You can also place 1-2 drops in a bowl of hot, steaming water and inhale the vapors under a towel to help relieve congestion. It can help keep bacteria out of minor cuts and abrasions. As a purifying spray just add a few drops to water in a 4 or 8 oz. glass spray bottle, shake well, and use on doorknobs, counter tops, light switches, toilet and sink handles. (A really great thing to do during flu season.) You can also dilute it in distilled white vinegar and use on moldy surface areas. (Look for organic 30% white vinegar.) There is a lot you can do with Five Givers Essential Oil Blend.
We also offer essential oil companion products, including diffusers for home, office or automobile, and essential oil Nasal Inhalers.
These essential oils are not cheap synthetic aroma oils and are not those blended with other oils. We use quality, organic essential oils, because, although they are more costly, they are often superior to non-organic oils as they are free from any possibility of pesticide residue. (Plus, we get to support safe conditions for the earth, water, animals, and people who work with the herbs/oils!) Some essential oils are highly toxic, and some can have contraindications. We always suggest consulting with a experienced aromatherapist or your healthcare practitioner before using essential oils, especially if pregnant, nursing, or taking prescription medications. Never ingest essential oils unless a certified aromatherapist is consulted first.
Suggested Use: When using in a diffuser, add 5-8 drops of Five Givers Essential Oil Blend directly into the diffuser water, or glass nebulizer, depending on the size of your device and amount manufacturer suggests.
Note: Some people are allergic to citrus or can’t tolerate citrus essential oils. Make sure you know before diffusing around others.
When using on the body*: If you opt to rub on feet, shoulders, chest and/or neck, you must dilute it in a carrier oil first (olive, coconut, sunflower, sesame, grapeseed oil, all work fine). Use no more than 1-2 drops of Five Givers Essential Oil Blend in 1 teaspoon of carrier oil. (Or use our Five Givers Topical Oil, already diluted in Castor oil.) If diluting it yourself, always start with less and increase by 1 drop if needed. Massage in well. Dilute in a carrier oil as well, when adding to a hot bath. Add 2-3 drops in 1 Tablespoon of carrier oil, and pour into a full tub of hot water. Mix it in the water well, before getting into bathtub. (Be very careful of slipping in the tub…and wash tub after soaking with oils to prevent slippage for the next person who bathes…which might be you!) You can also add a few drops to Epsom or sea salt then add that to your bath water. Do not put undiluted essential oils directly in the bath water.
*When using pure essential oils topically (on the body): Before using, perform a patch test on your inner forearm. Just apply a small amount of diluted essential oil and cover with a bandage. If you notice any irritation, use carrier oil to further dilute the essential oil, then was well with soap and water. If no irritation or rash occurs after 48 hours, you know it is safe to use on you skin. Whenever in doubt, always add less essential oil and increase amount by one drop drop as needed. Remember that all essential oils must be properly diluted before applying them to the skin. The recommended ratio is 1%, which is especially recommended for children and the elderly. A 1% solution means using 1 drop of oil per teaspoon of carrier oil for topical use, or up to 2-4 drops per Tablespoon of carrier oil for your bath water.
