This Essential Base Lotion from Essential Therapeutics is a lighter version of their Base Cream. Made of the same ingredients, it works as an excellent carrier for your essential oils and other aromatherapy applications. Non-greasy and incredibly nourishing, softening, and soothing to the skin, it's also great to use on its own as a general moisturiser!

Worried about your sensitive skin? No worries, this lotion is derived from natural plant materials, non-toxic, hypoallergenic, sulfate and PEG-free. It also does not contain any animal and petrochemical products to ensure its suitability for any skin types.

Environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free, we recommend up to a 10% dilution when adding pure essential oils, massage concentrates or skin synergies.

Safety Cautions

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:

  • Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.

  • Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.

  • Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
