Body Moisturizer – Mix 5 to 8 drops essential oil to 1 tbsp (15 ml) unscented lotion, cream or ‘carrier oil’ such as sweet almond oil, coconut oil or apricot kernel oil.
Massage Oil/Bath – Mix 8 drops essential oils with 1 tbsp (15 ml) carrier oil. Stir into warm bathwater or use during a massage.
Milk Bath – Stir 8 drops essential oil into ½ cup milk or cream to disperse oils and pour into bathwater to create a luxurious hot milk aromatherapy bath.
Room Spray – Add 2 to 10 drops essential oil to a small cosmetic spray bottle. Add ½ oz vodka and shake to disperse the oil. Add 2 oz purified water and shake again before spraying. Avoid spraying varnished wood surfaces because the essential oils could stain.
