MASSAGE OIL: Add to a 4 ounce squeeze bottle: 8 drops of Davana, 2 drops of Ylang Ylang, 5 drops of Chamomile (Roman) and 5 drops of Orange, then fill with Jojoba oil. Shake to mix well. Apply to the skin after bath or for full body massage. (1.7% dilution)
BODY BUTTER: Melt: one ounce each of Cocoa butter and Jojoba oil over low heat. Add 10 drops of Davana, 2 drops of Nutmeg, 5 drops of Cocoa, 3 drops of Cardamom and 10 drops of Vanilla Oleoresin. Blend together; as it cools it will thicken. Apply to dry skin or cracked feet. (2.5% dilution)
SUGAR SCRUB: To exfoliate the skin and smooth the appearance, mix together: 10 drops of Davana, 10 drops of Cedarwood (Atlas), 12 drops of Tangerine and 2 drops of Vetiver. Add ½ cup of granulated sugar, 1/4 cup of Jojoba and 1/4 cup of Sesame oils. Stir to mix well. Use a spoon to scoop scrub out. Gently massage 1 tablespoon at a time over the entire body. Rinse and blot skin dry to seal in moisture; revel in the aroma left on your skin. Avoid getting scrub wet to prevent contamination. (1.4% dilution)
INHALATION: Add to a personal inhaler and inhale as needed: 5 drops of Davana, 2 drops of Ylang Ylang and 10 drops of Mandarin. Or add Davana to your Thera Lux Diffuser and diffuse for 30-60 minutes.
