How To Use

Massage Oil
Use approximately one teaspoon of our blended massage oil on the body.
When using pure essential oils, add 5 drops of essential oil to each teaspoon of vegetable oil.

To use pure essential oils with candles: Light candle and wait for wax to melt a little bit. Then, add 1-2 drops of pure essential oil to the melted wax. Avoid getting oils on the wick or in the flame, because essential oils are flammable.

Diffuser Ring - is a circle of ceramic that is placed over a light bulb, with a groove running all around the ring. To use the diffuser, place it over a cool light bulb, then place five to ten drops of our pure essential oils into the groove. If you wish, you may blend two or more oils together before adding them to the diffuser. Once you have the ring securely on the bulb, you can turn it on to begin the evaporation, or diffusing process. The heat from the bulb will cause the oils to release into the air. The aromas from your oils will soon waft through your home, filling it with a wonderful fragrance. We also offer a wide assortment of Soapstone burners in which the oils are placed in the bowl (diluted in water) and heated by a tea lite candle.

Another method of diffusing essential oils is by using a candle. All you need to do is light a candle and wait a few minutes for the top layer of wax to melt, then place one or two drops of our pure essential oils into the wax. Once the oil is added, you can light the candle again. As many essential oils are flammable, take precautions when using either type of diffusing method.

Blending Essential Oils
While every essential oil has distinct properties and brings unique benefits in terms of physical and psychological well-being, many aromatherapy users find that blending two or more oils together enhances the experience even further. At A Scent's Worth, we are dedicated to providing you with the best in pure, organic, undiluted essential oils to be used on their own or blended together to form exciting combinations.

We encourage all of our customers to experiment with blends until they find the one that works best for them. However, not all essential oils mix well together. To help you decide what combinations to try, we have listed suggestions on many of the essential oils pages on our site.

For instance, an oil such as allspice might blend well with fir, pine, needle balsam, jasmine, lavender, patchouli, and most other spice oils. Geranium essential oil, on the other hand, is used frequently with bergamot oil, lemon oil, or citronella to create a powerful and organic insect repellant. Peppermint, which can clear sinuses and is beneficial in reducing fevers, blends well with other mint oils as well as with eucalyptus, lemon, marjoram, lavender, and rosemary.

Essential oils can be blended to achieve new therapeutic mixtures, or they can be blended purely for aromatic pleasure. Whatever your goal, be sure to take appropriate safety precautions when handling the oils. And don't forget to be creative! If you have any questions about blending procedures or would like us to create a custom blend for you, please feel free to contact us.

With pure essential oils, add a maximum of 8 drops of pure essential oils to bath water. When using bath salts, add one capful to bath water. When using bath gels, add approximately 1 tablespoon of gel to cupped hand or use with a sponge.

Hot Rock Massage
Select a large, flat smooth stone, the size of your palm Heat stone in a low temperature oven until warm but not hot. Rub some scented massage oil into the stone and use this heated rock to give your partner a soothing massage. The heat from the stone relaxes and penetrates the muscles. Use up to 15 drops of essential oil per 1 oz. of unscented oil. Start with less drops, you can always add more.
