The application or use that I give to this oil is the same that I give to the essential oil of palo Santo.
By inhalation: it is the basic method in aromatherapy. It can be direct or not. Aromatic diffusers are used, if you do not have one you can use a pot with hot water and place 15 drops of essential oil, and you will have the same benefits. This alternative is for problems in the respiratory tract and for some skin conditions.
By massage: For this step I recommend mixing the essential oil with a normal glycerin oil, ie without essence or a little water. In a few cases, having direct contact with pure essential oils can cause a type of allergy or irritation. Perform the massage energetically or softly, depending on the ailment. This method is ideal for contractures.
Aromatic baths: this method is ideal to relax the body and eliminate stress. It is necessary to have a bathtub, which we fill with hot water and 25 to 30 drops of oils are thrown. Remember that a bath with hot water is ideal for circulation and relaxation. If you do not have a bathtub that you can fill, do not worry, you can use essential soaps that will give you the same benefits.
