Essential Oils - directions for use


The normal, maximum concentration of essential oil to carrier oil should be 2.5%. This is equivalent to 1 drop of essential oil to each 2ml of carrier


For babies, children, pregnant women or the elderly, reduce the concentration to 0.5-1% (0.5% = 1 drop of essential oil to 10ml of carrier oil, 1% = 1 drop of essential oil in 5ml of carrier oil). For facial massages use 1-1.25% concentration.

Aromatic bath:

Add 5-10 drops of essential oil to a full bath and agitate to disperse. For an extra skin softening effect, mix 25 drops of essential oils into 50ml of base oil. Use 10ml of this oil blend in each bath. When using the Tri Nature dispersant, add 5-10 drops of essential oil to 5ml of dispersant and stir to blend. Tip into water stream and rinse into bath.


Place 8-10 drops of essential oil into your electric vaporiser dish. For candle vaporisers, add the oils to water in the vaporiser pan. For further information and warnings refer to the instruction manual of your electric vaporiser.

Ultrasonic Diffuser:

Tri Nature essential oils can be used with ultrasonic diffusers. For further information regarding the amount of essential oils to use, please refer to the instruction manual of your ultrasonic diffuser.

Essential Oil Blends: 

Step 1: Select your usage; massage, bath, vaporiser or ultrasonic diffuser.
Step 2: Follow the blending guides for your chosen usage and add the recommended number of drops to your carrier oil, vaporiser, ultrasonic diffuser, or bath.

To convert a massage formula for use in a vaporiser, simply use the same formula ratios but leave out the carrier oil.
To convert a vaporiser formula for use as in massage oil, add up the number of drops in the formula and multiply by 2. That is the amount of carrier oil (in ml) to use for the formula.


A formula for a vaporiser containing 14 drops of essential oil would be added to 28ml of carrier oil. This would result in a standard 2.5% concentration of essential oil.

20 drops of Essential Oil = 1mL
