BY INHALATION: pour 2 drops of essential oil on one map. Sit down and close your eyes. Inhale attentively and relaxed, first from one nostril and then from the other, and watch the thoughts and colors that arise. When you feel a feeling of well-being, you will have grasped the essence of the plant, its message.

It can be applied all over the body, or concentrated in some areas to be massaged, as Anglo-Saxon aromatherapy teaches: under the sole of the foot, on the chest, behind the nape, in the center of the forehead and in the hollow of the neck.
