This recipe base is for a salve that can be used for a variety of things. For different purposes, simply substitute different oils! If your current oil supply is limited to what comes in one of our basic starter kits, follow the recipe but just use frankincense (10 drops), lavender (8 drops), and melaleuca (8 drops). It’s amazing for your skin!
NEXT...Let's learn about Lavender
Next up is lavender! This is what we lovingly refer to as the “Swiss Army knife of essential oils”. Why?? Because you will use it for just about EVERYTHING! It’s an amazing oil with so many different functions and beneficial properties. Don’t leave home without it!
For our lavender DIY project, we’re going to show you how to make relaxing bath salts! This DIY is SO quick and easy, you’ll find yourself using it all the time!
And here’s a bonus recipe just for fun…BATH BOMBS!! They’re a little more involved to make than bath salts, but they’re a huge hit with kids and grown-ups alike! They also make great gifts.
And lastly, your Daily Challenge!
Today we want you to try both frankincense and lavender. Here are a bunch of ideas!
◉ Mix 1-2 drops lavender (and/or frankincense!) with your hand lotion to help
promote supple skin during dry times of the year
◉ Try a drop of lavender on a skin irritation (such as a minor burn, abrasion, or bug
◉ Diffuse lavender during the dinner/bedtime witching-hour and notice if your
normally-crazy children mellow out a bit :-)
◉ Use lavender to promote a restful night’s sleep. Rub a few drops on the bottom of
your feet, on your wrists, behind your ears, or even place a drop on your pillow or
the top edge of your sheets!
Bonus: If you have children at home, spend a few extra minutes with them at bedtime and rub a drop of lavender on their feet or spine. If you have a spouse or partner, offer a foot massage and share the benefits of more restful sleep with your loved ones. (Did that sound like a commercial?? It kind of felt like one as I was writing it… :-))
