I'm an aromatherapy novice but have recently fallen in love with it. I've found some great recipes for blends in a book I purchased, Aromatherapy: A Complete Guide to the Healing Art
The only problem is, the recipes include carrier oils but I'd like to use them in my oil warmer. I've read other places oils should not be used in warmers for various reasons, so I'm wondering, does anyone know how to substitute water? Would it be the same ounces of water that I'd use for the blends or do I need to convert it with a particular ratio?
Thank you so much!
If you have an oil burner with the bowl above and a candle below, just fill the bowl with water and then add a few drops of your essential oil (blend) of your choice.
You can't really mess this up because if you don't like the scent, you can take the candle out, tip the water down the drain and start again.
Use the aromatherapy book you bought as a guide for getting ideas. Don't be afraid to experiment - aromatherapy is safe and gentle, and your nose will tell you what's good!
