MUSCLE MASSAGE Add to a 2 ounce squeeze bottle: 5 drops each of Birch, Spearmint, Black Pepper and Helichrysum, then fill with Jojoba oil and shake well to mix. Apply enough to cover the area and massage onto affected areas. (2% dilution)
BATH SALTS: Combine: 2 drops of Birch, 1 drop of Peppermint and 2 drops of Frankincense with 1 tablespoon Jojoba oil and 1/2 cup of Epsom salts. Mix well together and add to full tub of bath water for a relaxing and relieving soak.
MASSAGE OIL: Add the following to a 2 ounce bottle: 5 drops each of Birch, Peppermint, Frankincense and Copaiba, then fill with 2 ounces Avocado oil. Apply as needed in self-massage or after bath to revitalize. (2% dilution)
SKIN SMOOTHER: Make a sugar scrub to exfoliate and invigorate the skin by mixing: 4 drops of Birch, 6 drops of Cypress, 5 drops of Tangerine and 5 drops of Cedarwood (Atlas) with 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, 1/4 cup of Jojoba and 1/4 cup of Sesame. Stir to mix well and pack into a jar for storage. Use in the shower, on wet skin. Gently massage 1-2 tablespoons onto thighs and buttocks for several minutes. Rinsing away the sugar will leave the oils behind to work therapeutically, so you may want to use as a last step after washing (soap will remove conditioning oils).
