Essential Oil Blending
Using Essential Oils in a Bath –
- Add the essential oils to a bath salt. (Pink Himalayan Salt and Epsom Salts are nice.)
- Add 8-10 drops total of your favorite essential oil to each ounce of salt.
- Use 1 tablespoon of that blended salt in a full bath.
- Add 3-4 total drops of essential oil to 1 cup of milk.
- Add the milk to your full bath.
- Add 3-4 drops of essential oil to a tablespoon of Jojoba oil and add to your full bath.
- In a 2-ounce spray bottle filled with water add 10-15 drops of essential oils and spray freely in any room.
Using Essential Oils in a Steam –
- Add 1 drop of essential oil, or 1 drop of a blend of several essential oils, to a bowl of steamy water.
- Make sure the water is just steaming, not boiling.
- CLOSE YOUR EYES and lean over the bowl and breathe in the oil.
- To enhance the effects use a towel over your head to create a tent to hold the steam in.
- If the water feels too hot, let it cool first!
