They are the essence of the plant. More simply they are the smallest molecules of the plant with all proteins removed. They aren't oils as you normally think of. They were miss labeled as this because they don't mix with water.

Is the rainbow rainmate like a essential oil diffuser?


If the instructions don't say so, I would not do it. Oils can clog air purifiers that are designed for such pruposes.

How much essential oil should I add to my batch of carrier oil? I have no idea how much it needs.


You should only add a few drops of essential oil to each batch of carrier oil. They are really concentrated and a few drops is enough.

How to use lemongrass oil


Hello there,

Have a blessed day.

You can follow the instructions below on how to use the lemongrass oil.

1.Use lemongrass essential oil to heal ringworm. This is a common remedy used in many parts of India. Combine 3-5 drops of lemongrass oil with 4 ounces of carrier oil, such as sweet almond or jojoba oil. Apply directly to the affected area several times per day until the ringworm is gone.

2.Use lemongrass essential oil as a fragrance in skin care products. This oil is widely used in natural lotions, creams and soaps. Add several drops to an unscented or homemade lotion for normal to oily skin. Or add the oil to glycerin soap or liquid castile soap, and wash the skin as usual.

3.Use lemongrass essential oil to open the sinus and breathing passages. Its potent aromatic properties will improve breathing, particularly in cases of severe congestion of sinusitis. Add 3-5 drops of the oil to a bowl of steaming water, place a towel over the head and inhale the vapors. Alternately, you can simply inhale the straight essential oil, but do this sparingly.
4.Use lemongrass essential oil in homemade massage oils. This oil has calmative and antispasmodic properties, making it ideal for massage. Combine 3-5 drops with 4 ounces of high-quality carrier oil, and massage into skin. This is a useful treatment to promote restful sleep.

5.Use lemongrass essential oil as a natural insect repellent. The strong scent is unappealing to insects, similar to citronella, and they will avoid it all costs. Combine 10-20 drops lemongrass oil in 8 ounces water. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle and shake well to combine. Spray the mixture directly onto the skin to repel insects. The oil may also be combined with citronella essential oil for added strength.
Note: Lemongrass essential oil can be purchased at natural health stores, some craft and hobby stores, and can be ordered online. Make sure you are buying 100 percent pure and natural essential oil, and not fragrance oil. Fragrance oil should never be used on the skin as described above.
Lemongrass essential oil can irritate the skin if it is sensitive. It should be avoided, or used with extra care, by people with sensitive skin. Usually, small amounts will not cause irritation.


Hope it helps.

Thank you for using fixya.

How to make oregano oil?


Oregano oil is an essential oil and has to be extracted from the dried, flowering tops of the herb by steam distillation.

Here you find precise description:
http://home-distiller.com/essential-oil-distillation/

and here some info about oil:
http://beauty.indobase.com/essential-oils/oregano-essential-oil.html

If you don`t need it pure, you can use method of maceration:
For this process plants are placed into a bowl of warm vegetable oil which makes the plants oil cells rupture and absorbs the essential oils. The bowl is then agitated for several days. The resulting oil is filtered and ready for use as a massage medium.

If you need it for cookery:
3 oregano sprigs, lightly crushed
2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

In a glass measuring cup, combine the oregano and olive oil. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 and up to 2 days. Discard the sprigs before using. Source(s): http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/oregano-oil
