Home-Made Bath Salts are easy to make. They are a great way to combine therapeutic benefits with the relaxing, soothing effects of essential oils. Add vitamin E, and the benefits soar.

Vitamin E acts as an anti-inflammatory and as an antioxidant. It is very good for the skin. Some common skin problems which can be resolved with the help of vitamin E oil are as follows: Aging Skin, Dry Skin, Scars, Stretch Marks, and/or Sunburn.

Making these bath salts for yourself or for gifts. Following are some bath salt recipes you might like to try:

Changes

1 Autumn Leaves

Changes

As summer changes into fall, it is time to fully embrace Mother Nature’s wonderful and colorful changes. Be flexible like the season’s and willing to change for the better. Remember, it is never too late to change your life.

I do not like change. I can do it gradually, like the changing of the season’s, but a sudden change throws me for loops that takes me a while to get over. I have learned to let aromatherapy help me with gentle change and with sudden changes. Following are some recipes that I use:

Ease Into Change (Essential Oil Recipe)

Mix the following essential oils with 1 ounce carrier oil:

11 drops Cypress for Comfort

11 drops Mandarin for Inspiration

11 drops Myrtle for Peace

12 Bergamot for Success

http://edge.affiliateshop.com/public/AIDLink?AID=138229&Redirect=/products/bergamot-essential-oil/profile

Swirl gently until all oils are thoroughly mixed.

During a time of easing into a change(s), place 8 to 10 drops in your bath, wear 3 to 5 drops as a body perfume, and/or place 3 to 5 drops, added to water, in an Aroma Lamp, Diffuser, or Oil Burner.

Dealing with Disruptive/Sudden Change (Essential Oil Recipe)

Mix the following essential oils with 1 ounce carrier oil:

Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) is an evergreen bush found in North America. The oil is extracted from the bean. It is rich in vitamin E and is a unique liquid wax used as an oil. It is fine, penetrating, stable, and long-lasting.

Jojoba can be used as a face moisturizer or as a more luxurious oil for massage. Jojoba has a very close chemical composition to the skin’s own sebum. It is suitable for all skin types, beneficial for spotty and acne conditions, and is good for sensitive and oily skin. As it combines well with the sebum, it also helps to unclog the pores and remove any embedded grime.

Jojoba works to condition and restore the health of the hair. Because of it’s fine texture, it is easy to wash out and is ideal for combatting dandruff and dry scalp.

Feminine Energy

1 Logo by Hemant

FEMININE ENERGY

Certain Essential Oils have an affinity with feminine energy. The following essential oil descriptions are only an introduction to the complex and subtle character energies they provide. Experiment with the ones on the list, and other essential oils, and enjoy!

Angelica Essential Oil gets called in when the going gets tough. It will get you through. It will not solve your problems for you, but it will help you see them in a new light. Changes sluggishness into revitalization.

Benzoin Essential Oil is warming and energizing. It’s like wrapping up against the storm, or like eating chocolate. It penetrates the emotional shield and can provoke erotic thoughts.

Bergamot Essential Oil is original and persuasive. It coaxes you out of depression and enlivens your sex life. It mitigates out crises and allows you to get what you want.

Chamomile (Roman) Essential Oil is golden. It humbly dispels nervousness and anger. It creates emotional stability, (nothing can worry you now). It majestically clears away past emotional debris.

Clary Sage Essential Oil is like a seductive man, (it makes you heady and euphoric), but it’s also profound. It calms melancholy, paranoia, and stress. It stimulates the sexual woman in you.

Coriander Essential Oil is uplifting and encouraging. It gently stimulates you into action. It is provocative, spicy, and warm.

Cypress Essential Oil is proud and enigmatic. It eases the sadness, yet is direct and outspoken. It helps you to stand up for yourself.

Fennel Essential Oil helps a woman enjoy a workout at the gym or a visit to the Well Woman Clinic. It comforts and enlivens the personality.

Geranium Essential Oil is friendly, kind, and sweet. It balances the aggressive and passive effects of life. It creates harmony and good humor between the sexes, and irons out irrationality and discontent.

Grapefruit Essential Oil is a liquid face-lift. It brightens up the day, or night, like a ray of sunshine warming your back and face. It is a booster oil full of positivity and confidence.

Scentuality and Confidence

Ask most anyone what attracts them the most in another person, and the answer will be self-confidence. Scentuality and confidence are a reinforcing pair that go through life hand in hand. Without confidence, Scentuality is lost. Essential oils will come to the rescue. Once you recover your confidence, your natural sensuality and self-confidence will bloom.

Following is a list of highly sensual essential oils that bring deep and profound emotions, lightens the heart, and stimulates the libido:
Basil, Bergamot, Grapefruit, Jasmine, Marjoram, Melissa, Neroli, Nutmeg, Rose, Rosemary, Ylang-Ylang

A couple of recipes you might wish to try:

Blend I
Add to 1/4 ounce Carrier Oil:
3 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
4 drops Neroli Essential Oil
4 drops Rose Essential Oil
4 drops Ylang-Ylang
Swirl gently until all oils are thoroughly blended before each use.
Wear as a Body Perfume.

Blend II
Add to 1/4 ounce Carrier Oil:
4 drops Bergamot Essential Oil
4 drops Jasmine Essential Oil
4 drops Nutmeg Essential Oil
3 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
Swirl gently until all oils are thoroughly blended before each use.
Wear as a Body Perfume.

Try making your own blend by mixing 2 to 4 of the above mentioned oils to 1/4 ounce Carrier Oil. Play around with your blends until you come upon several that work for you.
