Related to calm, mental peace and inner calm, it was commonly used to induce meditative states. Due to its regenerative qualities of the skin, its cosmetic use was also very widespread, through aromatic baths or beauty elixirs. We propose several examples to emulate these rituals of beauty and spirituality:
Aromatic baths: Add 3 drops of Sandalwood Essential Oil, 2 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil and 3 drops of Rosewood Essential Oil + 3 drops of Bergamot + 3 drops of Pink Palm, previously diluted in a little Queen of Egypt Bath Gel.
As an anti-aging facial elixir: 1 tablespoon of Carrot vegetable oil with 1 drop of Sandalwood essential oil, massage the face as a serum, one night a week, combined with your usual serum the rest of the nights. p>
Diffuser: We recommend the use of diffusers without heat, such as the ALQVIMIA Flask, since heat modifies the properties of essential oils. Use a maximum of 10 drops of Essential Oil Preparation in the diffuser.
Bath: dilute a maximum of 10-15 drops of Essential Oil Preparation in a small amount of milk (vegetable or animal), yogurt, honey, salt or Bath Gel. This is because essential oils are not soluble in water and need a vehicle to dissolve in the bath.
Steam Inhalation: apply a maximum of 5 drops of Essential Oil Preparation in a saucepan of hot water with approximately 1-2 liters of water, and perform inhalations covering the head and the saucepan with a towel, to keep the steam for longer.
Sauna: dilute a maximum of 2 drops of the Essential Oil Preparation for every 500ml used in the sauna.
Air freshener spray: the use of Alqvimia Anti-Stress Eau de Cologne is recommended.
