Essential oils enrich my live in many ways it’s time to share with you some of my own blends that I love and use daily for many years. As time passes I will add more recipes.
I use this Sandalwood deodorant for many years with success. The more you sweat the better you smell. Sandalwood oil’s sultry smell has an erotic quality that has earned its reputation as an aphrodisiac so you know… this one makes me feel very sexy. Besides that Sandalwood neutralizes the toxins coming out of your body.
2/5 80 proof Vodka
2/5 rose hydrosol
1/5 sandalwood essential
Blend all above in a roll-on bottle and shake every time before use.
Witchhazel and Fennel Essential Oil
Use 5 drops of fennel essential oil per 1oz of Witchhazel. Apply on face with cotton pad and let dry for a few minutes before you apply your facial oil or lotion. You will experience a tightening and lifting of your face… I love it!
Women have taken fennel for thousands of years because of its toning and revitalizing effects.
Facial Exfoliating Cleanser
This cleanser is used to exfoliate the skin, unplug pores and leave your skin looking fresh and dewy as the dead layers of cells are sloughed off. I use this one every night.
1/3 Bath and shower gel
1/3 jojoba oil
1/3 or a bit less, mix of 2/3 pumice fine and 1/3pumice medium
5 drops basil essential oil per ounce
some honey (optional).
Basil essential oil is excellent for this type of scrub, as it lifts graying cells and enlivens the skin tone.
Add 2 or 3 tumbled small amethyst stones to aid mixing the blend. As it settles the pumice will sink to the bottom and the whole mixture needs to be shaken up before use.
Amethyst helps to heal skin conditions and encourages the reabsorption of water.
½ 80 proof Vodka
5 drops of Tea Tree essential oil and 2 drops of Peppermint 2 drops of Clove essential oil per 8oz of combination above.
In the 1920s, dentists and surgeons began using tea tree oil to disinfect wounds and incisions. It became a customary dental treatment for bleeding gums, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. Peppermint adds a refreshing punch to this mouthwash.
