Base Cream is an unscented base ingredient.
It can be used plain or you may like to add some essential oils of your choice. We recommend a concentration of no more than 3% essential oils. See below for dilution rates.
Try placing some of the base cream in a smaller easier to use jar or other container and add your own oils. Mix thoroughly and always perform a patch test on small area of your skin. Once you are happy with the blend then you can increase the volumes used to use the rest of the cream. To do this, place in a bigger bowl, add your essential oils and give it a really good stir. Then return to a dark glass jar and keep in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
There are many different aromatherapy recipes you can use. Simply search the internet or see our wide range of books for a plethora of suggestions.
3% = roughly 3 drops of essential for every 5mls of base cream. If you're planning to apply the cream to your face then a 1% blend is recommended (1 drop per 5ml). 0.5% for children aged between 3 & 7, 1%-1.5% for kids between 7 & 12.
Some essential oils will need to be diluted more than this and some are not suitable for application to the skin. Please check the safety information for each oil before use.
