|Lavender in Provence, France|
This is a lovely way to make your house more of a welcoming home.
I love to use scents that relax the mind and body and help with sleep.
Lavender essential oil is great if you are having problems with sleep. Y
ou just rub a drop or two onto the soles of your footsies and off you go to dreamland.
Just be sure it is real and approved for use on the body.
1 teaspoon (100 drops) lavender essential oil
5-10 drops peppermint, spearmint or rosemary essential oil (optional)
2 oz. 80+ proof vodka
24 oz. distilled water
Pour essential oils and vodka into a bottle, cap and shake to emulsion. Mix with distilled water. It will cloud up but it will clear after a bit so don't worry. Shake well before each use
Here is another recipe for it:
Essential oil (try lavender or rose for traditional scents, jasmine or plumeria blossom for exotic scents)
90 ml (approx. 3 oz)non-flavored, high proof vodka
750 ml (approx. 25 oz) distilled water Mix and place in clean spray bottle, Shake before each use.
Lavender repels moths but you can also use plumeria and other scents like jasmine or rose, violet!
Lavender, essential oil that is safe for placing directly on the body is perfect for women's hormonal problems such as menopause.
