The Art of Relaxation – Aromatherapy Bath with Essential Oils

These make wonderful birthday or Mother’s Day gifts! You can customize the scent by blending different essential oils and just keep experimenting! I’d love to hear what your favorite blends are in the comments section!

Supplies

  • Plastic bag with ribbon or string tie
  • Epsom salt (1 1/2 cups per batch)
  • Essential oils (5-8 drops total)

Scoop 1 1/2 cups of Epsom salt into a plastic bag. [Note: This can be found in the pharmacy section of the grocery store or at the local drugstore and are usually sold in bags with several pounds of salts.]

Add a mix of 5 to 8 drops of essential oils (total, so about 2 to 3 drops of each oil) to the Epsom salts and mix. Close bag with a string tie or ribbon.

Hand Sanitizer Spray

Supplies

  • 5 drops of Young Living Thieves essential oil
  • 3 drops of Young Living Purification essential oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Witch Hazel (sold in pharmacy, over-the-counter)
  • Water

In a small (1 oz.) spray bottle, add the essential oils and witch hazel. Fill the rest of the bottle with water, cap, and shake.

This hand sanitizer can also be used as a room freshener, face toner, or to clean surfaces. It is gentler on the hands than commercial hand sanitizer–I tested it on my younger son’s hands.
