The following are some ideas on how to integrate essential oils into your spa treatments.

Blend several drops into a tablespoon of unsaturated fatty oil and use as a massage oil.
Infuse several drops into a warm damp towel, or compress and use it to remove a mask.
Add a drop to a creamy facial mask, cleanser or moisturizer.
Diffuse into the air through a diffuser made for essential oils.
Add several drops to an aromatherapy steamer.
Author’s note: Essential oils normally should not be applied directly to the skin. Instead they should be added to a carrier substance, such as distilled water or a vegetable oil, and be sure to keep them away from the eyes.
