    Aromatherapy Recipes

    Below I will be adding some of my favorite aromatherapy blends and their
    purposes. I have collected some of these from my various aromatherapy books,
    website links and some I've even mixed up on my own. Check back often...
    I'll be adding all the time.

    This "air freshener" blend is from Valerie Cooksley's book. She calls it
    Mellow Mist as it's good to diffuse in the air before the children come
    home from school to help them "chill out" and put them in a good mood and help
    them concentrate on their homework.

    1 cup distilled water
    20 drops Mandarin essential oil
    10 drops Lavender essential oil
    5 drops Marjoram essential oil
    5 drops Sandalwood essential oil
    Spray bottle with fine mist

    Mix all ingredients in spray bottle and shake before each use.
    Spritz in the air where the children will be when they get home from school
    or their pillows and furniture.

    Summer Citrus Blend

    8 drops Mandarin essential oil
    8 drops Lemon essential oil
    8 drops Grapefruit essential oil
    4 drops Citronella essential oil
    4 drops Bergamot essential oil

    I blend these drops in a ceramic tealight diffuser or my electric diffuser
    that heats the oils. It gives a real fresh, citrusy aroma to your home and
    smells wonderful for a fresh clean summery smell.

    Muscle Ache & Pain Reliever Oil

    5 drops Rosemary essential oil
    5 drops Lavender essential oil
    5 drops Nutmeg essential oil

    Mix these oils with one tablespoon of a carrier oil such as grapeseed,
    sesame, sweet almond or olive oil and massage into the skin where you are
    having the muscle pains. The carrier oil helps dilute the essential oils
    to prevent skin irritation. Massage 20 to 30 minutes for best results.
