modern herban wisdom
1 tablespoon Colloidal Oatmeal
1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons ground apricot kernel
2 oz oil (ex jojoba, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, olive oil)
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons aloe or hydrosol *
10 drops essential oil
Mix everything together in a bowl and enjoy!
*If you are not making this for immediate use, do not add the aloe or hydrosol! It will not keep as well with these water based ingredients included. You can add them right before each use.
This is an easy one! Simply combine 4 ounces of an oil of your choice with 50-60 drops essential oil. Shake well and enjoy! The fun is in choosing your carrier oil and your essential oils. Here are some suggestions:
For sore muscles try an arnica or comfrey infused oil with spike lavender, roman chamomile, and rosemary. For a sensual massage use an almond, apricot, or jojoba oil with rosewood and jasmine. For scar tissue try rose hip seed, tamanu, or infused calendula oil with helichrysum, lavender, and carrot seed oil.
