Quotable Quotes and Notable Notes
My first experiment with essential oils was to mix some oils for my husband's achy back. I had read about essential oils & wanted to put what I was reading to use. I found several formulas for back pain & then decided to try my own recipe, using the oils I already had. I mixed 5 drops of eucalyptus oil & 5 drops of peppermint oil, diluted in 1 Tbsp. of almond oil. The good news is that my husband, who is not fond of strong smells, didn't mind the aroma at all & found the massage to be soothing! by bettie

Homemade Coconut Salt Scrub    Just mix your Course Sea Salt or Sugar with your Oils at a 2:1 ratio.  For example I mixed 1 cup Salt with 1/4 cup Coconut Oil and 1/4 cup Vitamin E Oil.  If you are only using one oil mix 1/2 cup Oil with 1 cup Salt.  Then add 3-4 drops of Essential Oil for fragrance and stir it up. by jallamon
