I thought I'd start a post for oil,
aroma therapy etc... blendings and what you use them for
I was cleaning my room today and thought I'd mix a couple of
room scents (essential oils) while
I was at it. I got a couple of small cheap spray bottles at
Walmart so I could experiment.
1. Peppermint/Sage/ White Camphor and Myrrh - not too
bad for cleansing but I think next time
I'll leave out the myrrh.
Half a part each Myrrh and peppermint - 2 parts sage - 1 part
2. Lavender and Clove. I REALLY like this one. Clove
is a bit strong so make it 2 parts
Lavender to one part clove if you're not a clove fan but it's
a wonderful room energizer and
3. Lavender and Sage - Great for before you sleep.
I may just start mixing oils for the heck of it!
Although not an essential oil recipe, here is a slightly different
take on Lavender, a favorite of
mine. A delicious way to incorporate lavender and receive all
its benefits. The creator of the tea
is a friend of mine who has a lavender and herb farm.
A combination of lavender, mint, savory and marjoram, just as
the tea appeared in Act 4 of the
Bard's "The Winter's Tale".
1 cup dried Lavender blooms
2 cups roughly cut dried Peppermint
1 cup dried Summer Savory
1 cup dried Sweet Marjoram
1 cup dried whole Calendula blooms
Collect your herbs mid-summer and rub off the stems when dried.
Crumble the Peppermint leaves to match the size of the other
If your Calendulas are huge, break in half when dry.
Use 1 tsp. per cup: in a pot add 1 tsp. per person and 1 for
Steep 3 minutes and enjoy!
1/2 cup fresh Melissa lavender flowers
2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
4 cups sugar or to taste
1 three-ounce pouch liquid pectin
Bring two cup water to boil- remove from heat and add flowers
and steep for twenty minutes and
strain. In heavy saucepan, add infused water, vinegar and sugar,
bring to boil, stirring constantly
for 10 minutes or until; sugar is dissolved. Add pectin, return
to boil and boil for one minute.
Remove from heat and skim off foam. Pour in hot sterilized jars
Here is a great night oil I like to use on my face ...
geranium 1 drop
lavender 5 drops
sandalwood 4 drops
ylang-ylang 1 drop
Mix into 25 mls of vegetable oil and massage sparingly into
clean dry skin before retiring.
My favorite vegetable oils are sweet almond, peach or apricot
kernel. Almost as good are grape
seed, sunflower seed, and safflower seed. I usually pour both
essential and vegetable oils into a
small dark amber colored bottle and gently shake a few times
so that the oils completely mix
together and then label it. Oils made in this manner can last
up to three months.
I put lavender essential oil into a spray bottle with water
and iron my clothes with it!
I use marjoram mixed in sweet almond oil to rub down SW's back
when he's had an especially
tough work day...
Marjoram is a nice scent for a relaxant for men. It isn't to
flowery. As an analgesic,
antispasmodic and nervine it is good for minor large muscle
aches. As a hypotensive and
sedative it is good to use before going to bed. If he plans
to be active after the rub you might try
a blend I like. Lemon, peppermint and black pepper in your favorite
The lavender and clove spray is a good one as we get into flu
season. By using clove in the air by
spraying or in steam you decrease the risk of families spreading
flu to one another. It reduces the
air borne virus as it is an antiviral. As an antibiotic it helps
with bronchitis which is high risk
during flu season.
