On the Trail Foot Bath

After a long day on the hiking trail (maybe the normal kind in the woods – or the special kind found in shopping centers!) your tired feet might enjoy a little pampering. This wonderful foot soak will help your feet feel rejuvenated and ready for the next days’ activities!

Tea Tree – 20 drops
Lavender - 20 drops
Thyme – 16 drops
Lemongrass – 16 drops
Peppermint – 12 drops
Geranium – 12 drops
Sesame oil – 1 ounce

Mix the essential oils in a PET plastic bottle

Then add the Sesame oil.

There are a couple of ways you can use this blend.

The preferred way is to fill a basin (foot bath) with comfortable to very warm water. Add 1 teaspoon of this blend to the water, swish around and then soak your feet for at least 15 minutes. Afterwards wash your feet with a mild soap, rinse and dry OR just wipe them dry leaving the oils to continue to comfort your feet.

The second method is to soak your feet in a tub and then apply massage a few drops into your damp feet. This second method could be used if, say, you were ‘roughing it camping’ at the Ramada or Holiday inn, and just returned from using the Hot tub! (You know how tired your feet got from all the site-seeing and shopping you just finished!)

Drive, Drive, Drive Massage Blend

After a long day driving to your favorite vacation spot – (Wait a minute – who can afford gas? Well, those of us that can’t afford airline tickets that’s who!!) you might enjoy a nice massage of upper back, shoulders and even your lower back. Some folks like a little back rub before they begin their day of driving too!

Bay laurel – 15 drops
Peppermint – 12 drops
Roman Chamomile – 12 drops
Juniper berry – 12 drops
Geranium – 12 drops
Ginger – 9 drops
Sweet almond – 2 ounces

Blend all together in a PET plastic bottle and shake well.

Have someone massage your upper back, shoulders, neck and lower back before and/or after a long day of driving to help relieve tense muscles.

After Sun Oil

Lavender – 15 drops
Helichrysum – 5 drops
Bergamot FCF – 1 drop
Geranium and Rose blend – 1 drop
Sesame oil – 1 ounce
Jojoba – 1 ounce

Blend all in a PET plastic bottle then apply to the skin as desired.

Best if applied after a shower or bath.

It will help sooth any minor sunburn and help to heal any damage done during the day.

Reducing Cellulite Massage

We are asked about Cellulite and oils that might help. This blend may work for you. Remember you must exercise daily and possibly lose weight. Eating a balanced diet is of great importance too for not only your personal health but the health of your skin.

Pine needle – 12 drops
Juniper berry – 12 drops
Fennel - 12 drops
Lime – 12 drops
Thyme – 12 drops
Sunflower oil - 2 ounce

Using a PET plastic bottle, blend all the essential oils together and add to the Sunflower oil.

Shake well. Then Massage this formula into the cellulite areas, work deeply into the tissue to help smooth bumpy and dimpled skin.

Roman Chamomile – 15 drops
Geranium and Rose blend - 10 drops

Sunburn Spritzer

Lavender – 5ml
Emulsifier – 5 ml
Body Spray Base – 2 ounces

Blend essential oils and Emulsifier in a PET plastic spray topped bottle, then add the Body Spray Base.

Shake well and spray on sunburned area.

Repeat as needed and STAY OUT of the SUN for the next few days!!!

You don’t need to try to get a tan all in one day. This is a spray that you may want to make up and keep in the Refrigerator.

It can be used on any kind of burn that doesn’t have broken skin.

It is cool and will help the area to heal more quickly.
