In aromatherapy it is recommended to use 3 to 7 oils to obtain maximum effect with a smaller amount of product.
The synergy between the various distillates in fact allows a total resolution of the problem compared to a partial resolution in the case of using only one essential oil.
The recommended quantities of essential oil are:
- Aromatherapy diffuser: 15 drops (e.g. 3 drops from 5 different oils) for a diffuser placed in a space of 20 sqm.
- Bath: 10 drops for a full tub.
- Massages: 8% essential oil mixed with a different oil for massages.
