There are so many different aromatherapy options it can be difficult to decide which aromatherapy product to use. Here are some ideas for you to try.
For the Bath:
Close the doors and windows and then run a nice hot bath to the temperature you are most comfortable with. When the tub is full add 20 drops of essential oil to your tub mixing it up which will cause the scent to rise from the steamy water. Now choose the right aromatherapy product for the job:
To relax and calm – 2 drops lavender, 2 drops bergamot, and 2 drops cedarwood.
To reduce nervousness – 6 drops geranium, 4 drops lavender, 4 drops basil.
To eliminate insomnia – 4 drops chamomile, 4 drops lavender, 3 drops neroli, 2 drops marjoram.
To energize – 3 drops rosemary, 3 drops lemon.
For The Feet
After a day on your feet you come home with tired and sore feet that are so worn out you’re sure you can’t take another step. So which aromatherapy product do you use this time? Start by filling a container that’s large enough for both of your feed with warm water then add your essential oils and sit back and relax.
Try one of these
Add 3 drops peppermint and 2 drops frankincense
Add 3 drops peppermint and 3 drops lavender
Add 3 drops Rosemary and 3 drops lemon
There are several essential oils that are great for massage. You’ll just need to choose the aromatherapy product you like best. Massage with essential oils will increase the healing power while also creating a calming effect or energizing effect.
For massage use essential oils diluted in a carrier oil which will give you your aromatherapy product. Almond Oil, Grape seed Oil, Olive Oil, and Sunflower Oil are all good carrier oils. Store your oil in a dark bottle. You can use a funnel to pour the oil in. For every 1 oz of carrier oil add 20 drops of essential oil and then shake well. Use your choice of oils.
Lavender is great for relaxation as well as for the nerves, chamomile is excellent for insomnia, and neroli is the right choice for relaxation. In fact all of the mixes used in the bath make a good choice for a massage aromatherapy product too.
There are so many different choices. You can mix essential oils however you want. You may have favorite oils that you like to use a lot and you may also have oils you prefer not to find in the aromatherapy product you choose.
You can also purchase your favorite aromatherapy product already made rather than making up your own. There are many great sites online that offer a full line of products for the bath, massage, home, or just about anywhere else you can use an aromatherapy product.
The hardest part about buying online is deciding what aromatherapy product you want. If I were you I’d put in a nice size order and fill up your cabinet with all the products you love. Then you’ll have choices to fit the mood and the moment.
