Directions: Suspended in a base of pure Jojoba oil, this Australian Blue Cypress pure essential oil blend can be applied neat to the skin or used in massage. For other ways to use essential oils please please visit our Methods of use section. Please note: that Essential Oils blended with Jojoba do not burn as well in candle vaporisers (unless they are very well heated). The water in the candle vaporiser needs to be quite hot and the newer open style burners just don’t heat the water/oil up enough, so if you are purchasing a new vaporiser make sure you get an enclosed one.
We recommend electric diffuser that uses ultrasonic waves to diffuse the water with essential oils into tiny molecules, producing an elegant mist, releasing the essential oils in their 100% purest form and enhancing the effect of aromatherapy,
