Take care of yourself this winter with this selection of essential oils plus pamper yourself with a foot scrub or bath salts kit.
Use the recipes below to create an essential oil blend, and read more about the science behind the oils chosen here.
Lavender Lavandula angustifolia oil: 5 drops Ylang ylang Canaga odorata var. genuina oil: 3 drops Bergamot Citrus aurantium var. bergamia oil: 2 drops
Clary sage Salvia sclarea essential oil: 3 drops Ylang ylang Cananga odorata var. genuina: 2 drops
DIRECTIONS (For both recipes)
Adults: Dilute the blend in 2 teaspoons (10ml) of carrier oil. Camellia Camellia oleifera and marula Sclerocarya birrea are two great choices for carrier oils. Both are nourishing and supportive for healthy skin. If you prefer you can even use a safe diluent for the bath such as whole fat milk. For the formula above use the complete amount for one full bath. Fill the bath first before you add the oil blend, give it a good swish to mix, then step into the bath. Relax and inhale.
The same formula also makes a body or massage oil. Add the blend to 2 teaspoons (10ml) of carrier oil and use this diluted preparation over a 24-hour period in 3 to 4 topical applications. Try massaging it into your feet or hands while taking a few deep breaths in and out. Adding this formula to liquid soap and using it daily in the shower is also an effective alternative.
Inhaling is another very effective way to use essential oils. If you have a diffuser add the essential oil blend without the carrier oil. When diffusing, don't exceed 30-minute intervals and diffuse in well-ventilated areas.
