I’m a sucker for home remedies. I generally loose interest in a purchased product after about 3 uses…So making my own is a better investment! The other day I found these recipes on Design Sponge. Click for the full post. There are lots more recipes.
A Well Oiled Machine
-2-3 Tbsp. sweet almond, jojoba, apricot, sesame or other carrier oil
-5 drops bergamot essential oil
-5 drops geranium essential oil
-Begin running a hot bath.
-Pour your carrier oil of choice into one of your cupped palms.
-Drop the essential oils into the carrier oil.
-Place your hand, with the oil into it, underneath the running faucet, allowing the warm water to carry it into the tub basin.
-De-robe, step ever so gingerly into the tub, and feel your cortisol levels fall.
*Any oily substance used in a tub makes said bathtub very, very slippery. Use extreme caution when entering and exiting. If youâ€™re too blissed-out to wipe it clean right away, tell the other members of your household to mind the tubâ€™s slippery state and write yourself a reminder note or leave out a reminder prompt, like a towel hanging over the tubâ€™s ledge, to clean it later.
