Deep, rich and sensuous, this aromatherapy bath oil is one of my favorite homemade bath products.
It calms your nerves and quiets your mind, while the self-care relaxes your muscles, 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!
20 drops Lavender essential oil
16 drops Orange essential oil
4 drops Clary Sage essential oil
1 drop Vetiver essential oil
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. Click here for tips on how to take a perfect aromatherapy bath.
Choose carrier oils that nourish and support your skin type.
You can really boost the skin-repairing powers of the essential oils by tailoring your carrier oils to your skin's needs.
