Tips on Using Essential Oils


If you’ve ever read my skincare posts, you know I absolutely love using oils. Oils are my favourite skincare remedy. Of course, like most of you, I was afraid using something so rich may cause acne and breakouts, yet through out the years, I realised with the right amount and ingredients, it actually does your skin wonders. They are not only the best moisturiser, but also gives you a dewy glow afterwards. 

As I’ve mentioned before, I have a soft spot for Australian products, so I’m sure you can imagine my happiness when I was approached to share a relatively new natural Aussie brand — Bondi Wash. All that said, I’ve decided to share a few tips on using essential oils, I hope you’ll find it interesting. 


值得一提的是,植物精油的用途很廣,目的也都不同;所以呢,這次透過來自澳洲的 Bondi Wash 來與你們分享四個我自己偏好的使用方式。





I learned this from the girls of my go-to facial spa. Basically, all you have to do is add 3-5 drops of essential oil in to a bowl of warm water, and then face down for around 5 minuets. Remember to cover your head with a towel so you don’t miss any of the steam. This is meant to open up your pores and boost metabolism. 

I do this once a week to clear out any build-up dirt I may have, which really helps to prevent breakouts.

相信有在定期做臉的人,一定對蒸臉不陌生。每個 Spa 在替客人進行臉部清潔後,幾乎都一定會進項此項程序。不過,在上一趟回台灣的時候,也另外學到了可以在家自己做簡易蒸臉的辦法。步驟很簡單,首先準備一盆溫熱水,滴入幾滴精油,用毛巾覆蓋頭部,接著臉部朝下吸收透過蒸氣散發出來的天然植物香。定期蒸臉,能夠促進行陳代謝,並同時清潔毛孔。




There’s nothing better than a good warm bath. I mean, why not treat yourselves every once in a while right?

Scents are so important in creating a relaxing bath, and I love adding them through essential oils. Hot water with oils can ease both mental and physical symptoms (I’m talking about the annoying shoulder problem we all got from sitting in front of the laptop all day). Of course, different oils have different benefits, and this Buddhawood & Black Currant scent is perfect for releasing stress and skin pampering.

It is is no secret that essential oils are great for massages. I personally like to whip it together with a unscented shea-butter to create a extra moisturising cream. I tend to get swollen legs after a long shoot, so at the end of the day, I massage to ease the muscle as well as revitalise the skin’s softness. Don’t forget the best way to do it is to press your way from your ankle to your thighs. 



I get super excited when skincare and wellness are combined, though I’m no professional when it comes to meditating. All I do is concentrate on my breath for 5-8 minutes while my Muji aroma diffuser is on. Basically, just add water with your preferred essential oil, and the tiny machine will produce a dry scented mist. I do this one or two times a week to envision my goals. 

Recommendation: Sydney Peppermint & Rosemary Essential Oil

    That’s some great ideas. I’ve never used essential oils for anything else than room scenting:) I will definitely try the facial steam bath.

      Room scenting is my favourite way of using essential oils as well. The facial steam is great, specially if you don’t have time to go for a proper facial spa!

  • Saw this uncompleted snowman in Daikanyama a few months back. Missing Tokyo and it’s snow..☃️
今天去了附近新開的 salon 看看,從老闆到髮型師都是是日本人,有種來到東京的感覺。好想再去啊,雖然明明才剛回來三個月。

  • The current state of my vanity - obviously this is not my whole collection, but here are some recent favourites ✨✨ (the beautiful tray is from @byvaleta via @Etsy )
雖然說梳妝台根本放不下我所有的東西,但還是想讓小窩看起來更完整一點。照片裡是我最近常用的產。特別是左邊兩罐粉底,真的是喜歡到不行,想要遮瑕力高一點用 #diorskinforever ,平常自然輕透路線就是 #nars 的瞬效裸肌密🖤 澳洲的朋友都被我推薦一輪了🙈

  • Thanks for saving my sensitive skin @fancl_official 💜
今年年初發現自己對很多東西的過敏,吃的跟用的都是😭😭 現在試用新的保養跟化妝品都都是膽戰心驚(不誇張,一發作就是紅腫乾)。卸妝油是我戒掉好一陣子的東西了,不過最近發現了 #fancl 整個像找到救星。目前用過最溫和的卸妝油,不泛紅也不長粉刺,太感人。(詳細文章籌備中)
另外,剛剛開起了專門給商攝與靜物的帳號,大家可以看看➡️ @tiffanyyangphoto 🙈🙏🏼✨目前在澳洲都好,接案量也還可以, 雖然還在摸索但終於找到自己不一樣之處還是覺得幸運。
