DIY: Essential Oil Blend for Stress Relief – Nighttime
All You Need Is…
The Following Essential Oils:
I bought all these essential oil in a kit here
Empty Roller Ball; These are such high quality! Any Carrier Oil; You can use a variety of different kinds, I personally prefer coconut oil, it makes my skin so soft and it is safe if I want to use on my scalp or anywhere else! I bought a large bottle here. You can also use jojoba oil, argan oil, rose oil, or any oil of your choice that safe on skin.
The purpose of Carrier Oil is to dilute some of the essential oils, since they are so strong, some people may have a reaction when put directly on their skin. They are potent so you will still get all the healing properties and amazing smells even if you use carrier oils. It makes your essential oils last much longer!!
I use 5 drops of Lavender, 5 drops of Ylang Ylang, 5 drop of Frankincense, and 2 drops of Copaiba. Feel free to add more or less drops depending on how you want the smell or if you like one scent more than the other. After I dropped all of them into my roller bottle, I fill the rest with carrier oil.
I apply these oils behind my ears, to my wrists, bottom of my feet, or on my chest. Since it's night time and you don't have to worry about your hair, I will put some on my scalp.
