oils take us into the realm of emotions. That's why we decide on our
sense of smell, when “something smells fishy” or
is due to the fact that our feelings are directly linked to our
olfactory bulb - and that has been formed already very early in
Thus we are bewitched by the fragrance of a perfume, but also repelled
by an unpleasant odor. In addition, we have an extensive memory for
scents. These are almost always associated with emotional moments and
memories. Therefore reflexology treatments with essential oils work on
the emotional field.
Essential oils are the finest extract of the plants and have an
intensive effect on both body and soul. This we should consider when
dealing with essential oils. In particular for reflexology we are due
to consider a few aspects of attention.
Please always dilute essential oils for your treatments with neutral
carrier oils, at least in a dilution of 1:20 (1 part essential oil: 20
parts of neutral oil). For larger areas of application a dilution of
even 1:50 is appropriate.
Always use high quality oils. Oils of poor quality can spoil your
treatments. The carrier oils can be for example jojoba oil, almond oil,
avocado oil, macadamia nut oil or sesame oil.
