Sunday Spa Day

Ready for a relaxing evening after a holiday weekend featuring some perfect Essential Oils?

First, make a pot of strong Chamomile Tea and enjoy as many cups as your heart desires during our nurturing thy self night...

A delightful homemade Cuticle Oil recipe:

1-2 Tbsp Coconut oil
1/2 tsp Cocoa butter
5 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
2 drops of Cypress Essential Oil

Combine the Coconut oil and Cocoa butter in a saucepan and warm over very low heat stirring constantly.  Remove from heat let it cool a bit before adding the Essential Oils, stir again.  Store in a clean container with a lid, brown glass jars always work well for me.

How about a nice Epsom Salt Soak for the feet.  Maybe a body bath with a few drops of Tea Tree Oil, Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil and 5 drops of Eucalyptus Oil.   

Take a wash cloth and press to eyebrows, now pluck away the naughty little strays that don't belong.  Sometimes creating a new eyebrow shape can be fun too.  

Move on to a manicure/pedicure.  Moisturize body with your favorite lotion.  Add a few drops of Tea Tree Oil or Rosemary Oil to your boars bristle brush and comb away.

Light Lavender Perfume Recipe

This is light enough to sleep in but a special treat to help you relax.

1 cup of fresh herb lavender flowers 
1 cup vodka (to preserve)
1 cup distilled water

Pour enough vodka to cover lavender flowers.  Allow to steep for two weeks.  Strain and add distilled water.  Store in dark brown glass bottle away from heat or light.  (Amber, brown glass bottles can be found on amazon.com, even Target.com sells them as aromatherapy glass bottles).  

Now you are relaxed and refreshed to start your week.  Good night and sleep well.
