- Room diffuser: between 3 and 6 drops in 100ml of water.
- Bath: 8 to 10 drops of essential oil emulsified in coarse salt, milk, cream, or honey in hot water (to prevent the oil from evaporating due to the heat).
- Massage: we recommend diluting a few drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil. This essential oil can sensitize you to sunlight, so be cautious.
