Healthy Outlook – DECEMBER – Gifts of Essential Oils
OK Now, for some fun gift ideas?
Bath Salts or Shower Bombs –
For a calming relaxing bath after a challenging day. 2 parts Epsom salt, 2 parts Kosher salt and 1 part baking soda. Add essential oils. You can put this mixture in a hinged glass jar with a ribbon and give the gift of relaxation!! I like to use Lavender, Frankincense, and Bergamot for this.
For those who need an invigorating shower to start the day. Mix 1 cup of baking soda, ½ cup of citric acid, and ½ cup of cornstarch. Slowly add essential oils. Spritz with water from a spray bottle and stir, spritz and stir until your mixture resembles wet sand. Press into silicone molds and let sit until dry (up to 8 hours). Carefully pop out and store in an airtight container. Give the gift of rejuvenation!! I like to use Lemon and Peppermint.
Give a diffuser and some of your favorite oils
Mix up a massage oil I use a small container of almond oil and add Peppermint and Frankincense.
There are so many combinations with specific benefits I encourage you to have fun and make it special. Remember giving a gift of health and wellness carries with it, love.
