The various uses of natural essential oils / BIO Folha d'Água:
Folha d'Água oils can be used to make cosmetics, soaps and perfumes. Just add a few drops of one or more essential oils in the saponification process to make a difference in the final fragrance of your soap. They are also used to make your own perfume, and the possibilities for combinations are endless.
Candle making or used in Diffusers:
Equally useful is the use of essential oils in the making of scented candles. The right time to dilute will be when the wax is melted and preferably before it is even placed in the mold to avoid waste evaporation due to the heat of the wax.
For diffusers just follow the manufacturer's instructions.
It is perfectly possible, and even widely used by professional masseurs, to dilute these essential oils with another vegetable-based oil for the practice of your massages. It is strictly inadvisable to use pure essential oils on the skin without being properly diluted with other neutral vegetable oils (base oils) or added when making massage candles (designed for this purpose). Potential allergies the user may have to some essential oils should also be considered.
Whenever there are no contraindications, the advantages of a massage made with the benefits of a specific vegetable and natural essential oil are enormous.
