Our oils are 100% pure therapeutic-grade and made with pure essential oil extracts, ideally used in the following ways:
The practice of administering essential oils can be in several ways which include:
- Diffused through the air:
Add 4-6 drops into an oil burner or oil diffuser.
- In a bath:
Due to the potency, a small number of drops is all that is required. The reason for this is that oil and water do not mix as you may well know. Therefore the oils will float on the top of the water and attached on the edge of the bath and onto your skin. Essential oils combined with hot water in the bath may potential cause skin irritation.A safe, effective way to use essential oils in a bath is to mix them with a liquid which will be able to combine them so that they mix and disperse within the water, such as milk or a carrier oil such as jojoba. The milk or carrier oil protects your skin, and helps the essential oils disperse through the bath water making it safer for both children and adults.
- On the skin:
Massage them into the skin by first mixing into a carrier oil base or in a skin cream base. It is recommended that you use only one or two drops in a base oil or cream for topical use and seek professional advice in order to address particular health issues such as dry or itchy skin conditions before applying.
Add a few drops to a water spray bottle and shake well before spraying onto surfaces to use with a cleaning cloth. For floors, add a few drops to a bucket of hot water.
With regards to ingestion of essential oils. Though our oils are the finest and purest oils available, we do not recommend ingestion. It is against government regulation in Australia to prescribe essential oils for medical purposes unless by a qualified health care practitioner who has knowledge of essential oil toxicology and an understanding of how essential oils interact with the body.

Where are these essential oils sourced from?
Little Innoscents pride ourselves on offering 100% pure naturally extracted essential oils and blends, all of our essential oils are sourced from either locally grown on farms in Australia, if they are native to our country, others are sourced from overseas in areas that yield the best crops where they grow naturally in their environment for that essential oil. The strength or sweetness of the smell of an oil does not always reflect on its potency or effectiveness, rather it’s the natural chemical makeup of that essential oil and how it will offer its true healing characteristics.
Why are the prices so low compared to other well-known brands?
Why is our pricing so much cheaper, could they be true essential oils you may ask? Well yes all Little Innoscents oils are 100% pure and of the highest grade essential oils, we use many essential oils in our babycare and cleaning range that was created over 11 years ago. Our ethos at Little Innoscents is to provide good quality, natural and organic products to mainstream consumers.
