Sweet Dreams Aromatherapy Bath Oil
Soothing, sleep-inducing bath recipe for insomnia with lavender aromatherapy oil
Deep, rich and sensuous, this aromatherapy bath oil is one of my favorite homemade bath products.
It calms your nerves, relaxes your muscles and quiets your mind so you can fall into a deep, peaceful sleep.
Not only that, but these essential oils are especially good for repairing the skin and reducing wrinkles (Bonus! I'm all over that!)
If you don't have time for a bath, simply massage some of the lavender aromatherapy oil into your face and torso before sliding into bed - you'll get the same luxurious effect!
Sweet Dreams Aromatherapy Bath Oil Recipe

1 drop Ylang Ylang
4fl oz (125ml) carrier oil
of your choice (see below for ideas)
Combine all the ingredients in a dark glass or PET plastic bottle.
Store it in a cool, dark place (not your bathroom cabinet - it's too warm and humid.)
To use your aromatherapy bath oil, pour about a tablespoon into the bath after you've finished running the water.

Choosing the Best Carrier Oils for Your Skin
Choose carrier oils that nourish and support skin. For example, you could add a bit of
borage oil or
sea buckthorn oil to a base of
sweet almond oil or
jojoba oil for dry or maturing skin.
You can really boost the skin-healing powers of the essential oils by tailoring your carrier oils
to your skin's needs. Experiment - it's fun, and your skin will love you for it! Click here for the
