What’s as easy as 1, 2, 3?
Nourishing your body with an oil blend every day. I know it does kinda sound a little bit hard, but you can start simply and build your skills.
What You Will Need To Get Started
1 or more bottles of essential oil
carrier oil (almond oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil or anything else you can think of or that’s in your cupboard)
a saucer or little ramekin
How to make a Blend for Your body
Put 7 drops of essential oil into your container
Pour in 3 teaspoons of carrier oil
That’s it. Mix it with your little finger (any finger really). Now go ahead and coat your body with your delicious formula.
I have used oil all over my body for many, many years and it’s kept my skin looking and feeling fantastic. Once I’ve had a shower and moisturise with an oil blend, I just put on a robe for about 10 minutes before dressing. This allows time for the oil to soak in and any excess to be absorbed into your robe. In that time I have breakfast or do whatever I’m doing to start the day.
For some people this is too time consuming. Others don’t like oil but prefer a cream. I understand every one’s preferences are different but to me there’s nothing more beautiful than starting the day with a formula you have made just for yourself that’s totally natural. No preservatives, no artificial fragrances or waxes, no cream that’s been made in massive vats full of yucky synthetics.
If you are just starting out you could try buying one new oil each month or every 2 weeks. As your library grows you will increase the amount of combinations you can create and as the time passes you will feel more comfortable with mixing. As a beginner it’s easy to make mistakes but if you just mix a little at a time then the wastage is minimized.
The next step is to find lovely glass bottles from a supplier – just have a look on the Internet, there are lots available. You must know how many mls your bottle is and then you’ll know how many drops of essential oils to put in. If you are in the USA and are not metric (!) you’ll have to convert these ratios:
10 mls carrier oil add 5 drops
20 mls carrier oil add 10 drops
25 mls carrier oil add 12 drops
30 mls carrier oil add 15 drops
40 mls carrier oil add 20 drops
50 mls carrier oil add 25 drops
100mls carrier oil add 50 drops
200 mls carrier oil add 100 drops.
******Always put the essential oil drops in first so they can have a get together, gel, mélange and synchronise before you add the carrier oil.
Voila. You are creating your day with Aromatherapy. It’s easy as 1,2,3.
