One of the most versatile and useful essential oils, lavender has literally dozens of uses. Most commonly used as a sleep aid, lavender oil can also be used to soothe headaches (the easiest way to do this is to mix with witch hazel and dab onto the forehead), and also as an antiseptic. It can be dabbed directly onto cuts and bruises with a cotton bud. It is also said to affect the centre of the brain which deals with pain and to help ease nausea when inhaled.


Lavender should be avoided in early pregnancy, but is safe for use with young children.

Tea Tree.

Essential oils are pure essences of various flowers, woods, resins and leaves, and are pure and undiluted. These can be used in the same ways as our aroma oils, and can also be used in the bath or, in some cases, for first aid use. In addition, they can  be diluted for use in massage, or added to your favourite body products to fragrance them. They can be added to boiling water for use as inhalants, or can simply be inhaled from a handkerchief. They are 100% natural plant oils with nothing added, and are suitable for vegans. They are heavily concentrated and need to be diluted before contact with skin, except where indicated specifically.


Tea Tree is a powerful antimicrobial agent, effective against a wide range of bacteria, viruses and fungi - and has even been shown to kill MRSA bugs. It is toxic when taken via mouth, but is a common ingredient in skincare preparations owing to its excellent healing and cleansing properties, particularly with regard to spots and pimples. A few drops in your bath water with some salt is a great treatment for both skin infections and vaginal thrush.

Tea Tree is also toxic to animals, and so should be kept away from children and pets. Tea tree is a powerful extract, and should be well diluted before use (although it can be dabbed neat onto pimples). It is safe for use in pregnancy (but not labour)  and is safe for children over 5 when well diluted.

It’s primary usage outside of perfumery, however, is in the healing of connective tissue injuries - from tennis elbow to sprains, strains and torn ligaments. Diluted in a carrier oil, it should be massaged in to the affected area. The same diluted oil makes a good rub for varicose veins, and to rub on the stomach for digestive disorders.

Lemongrass should not be used during pregnancy. It is safe for use with children over the age of 3, but it should be well diluted (1% maximum) for children under 10.





Eucalyptus oil is a powerful decongestant, and its most popular use is as an inhalant to treat colds, winter bugs, asthma and other respiratory problems. It can also be diluted with a carrier oil and massaged in to help treat muscle aches and inflammation, as well as neuralgia. It is antimicrobial, and can be dabbed on to acne, cold sores and other sores directly with a cotton bud.


Eucalyptus is safe for use in pregnancy, as well as safe for use with children, although it shouldn’t be used (even diluted) on the skin of children under two - try a diffuser instead.
