Suggested uses:

  • Room diffuser: 3 to 6 drops in 100 ml. of water.
  • Bathtub: 8/10 drops of essential oil emulsified in coarse salt, milk, cream, or honey in hot water (it prevents the oil from evaporating due to the heat).
  • Food use: we suggest 1/2 drops every 100 gr. of food to be flavored and added at the end of cooking (we suggest to always start from the lowest recommended dose and eventually increase the drops in the future).

Warnings: Do not use in case of chronic diseases, during pregnancy and lactation. If in doubt consult a physician/pharmacist.
