I do not like a lot of oil on my body, face or hair so can this be avoided?
This is not a problem. When working these areas I would just use the minimal amount necessary to carry out the treatment. The Essential Oils used in Aromatherapy are used in conjunction with a Carrier Oil e.g., Sweet Almond Oil. It is the 2 combined together that is applied to the skin to make it more easily absorbable into the body. The Carrier Oils, like the Essential Oils, are all natural and contain nutrients, vitamins and minerals which are good for the skin.
