Citrus Scent for Any room

Lemon – 10 drops
Lime – 5 drops
Tangerine – 4 drops
Mandarin – 3 drops
Patchouli – 3 drops

Blend all in an amber bottle, then use in any room diffuser of your choice. Tealight diffusers or electric warmers are ideal for this room scent.

Jitters Blend

For Jitters when attending summer weddings, parties or other gatherings where strangers may be present – this blend gives you courage to start conversations! Place in a Personal inhaler or use on a tissue.

Peppermint – 5 drops
Spearmint – 5 drops
Basil – 2 drops

Blend all in an glass bottle, then add to your Personal inhaler.

RELIEF for Tired Feet and lower Legs

Being on your feet all day whether at work or at play can make your feet and ankles very tired. Give them a little relief by soaking in a tepid foot bath where you have added a few drops of this blend.

This recipe makes enough for 2-3 foot soaks as you only need to add 3-4 drops in your foot soak basin. Add a little Epsom or bath salts to the basin too.

Oh Yeah! Got to go soak!!

Spruce needle – 3 drops
Ravensara – 4 drops
Peppermint – 2 drop
Tea Tree – 2 drops

Blend all in an amber bottle. Add 2-4 drops to your foot soak basin. Sit back and enjoy!

Eliminate Odors in a Musty Basement Spray or Diffuser Blend

Spruce needle – 50 drops
Eucalyptus globulus – 50 drops
Bay rum – 20 drops
Tea Tree – 20 drops
Lime – 10 drops
Lavender – 10 drops
Cedarwood – 10 drops
Coconut Emulsifier - 2 1/2 teaspoonsful

Blend the above in an amber bottle then mix 50 drops with ½ teaspoon coconut emulsifier. Pour into your PET plastic spray bottle and add 4 ounces of water.

Shake well and spray onto any surface in your basement that appears to be growing the unwanted smell.

Spray some around the room too. As an alternative you can use this blend in a diffuser (omit the emulsifier and the water) - such as a SpaScenter or Tru Melange and diffuser constantly for several days.

Remember to keep adding more Essential oils as they will be used up quickly in very smelly basements.
