The Enchantment Begins
The festive season and holidays are truly an enchanting time for many of us. I have very fond childhood memories of the holidays and celebrations with family and friends. This is one of my favorite times of the year to be creative and to enjoy essential oils and their benefits.
During this busy time of year we can use essential oils to help us relax to promote better rest and sleep, create an ambiance for our special gatherings, and to make those little extra special gifts.
Some of my favorite essential oils for the festive season include the
citrus oils, pine, cedarwood, nutmeg, clove, ginger, frankincense, sandalwood,
Bath balms are easy to make and they make good stocking stuffers and gifts. Should you care to try making them, here is a recipe:
In a bowl, mix all ingredients together. Moisten the mixture using a
spray bottle of water or witch hazel. As soon as the mixture begins to
stick together, shape into balls or press into molds. Allow the balms
to dry for about 24 hours before wrapping in clear plastic wrap.
For your protection, use essential oils that are certified EOBBD (Essential oils biochemically and botanically defined) to obtain the desired effect. Scented or fragrance oils are different from essential oils. Purchase essential oils from a reputable supplier.
