www.dropsofnourishmentI recently had an essential oil class. I don’t know if I would call it a class really, because it was very low key. We were visiting while smelling and talking about essential oils. The class varied from people who use them every day to some who only heard about essential oils, but knew very little about them. What I really loved is that everyone was giving their advice/opinions on certain topics, not just me! The “class” was really fun because the guests were fun to be with for starters and there was no pressure on any one.  After discussing about the oils we did my favorite part of the evening and made some bath salts and sugar scrubs for the guests to take home and try. What’s so great about this is the guests got to be involved and they got to smell the different oils that they would want to put in their bath salts and sugar scrubs. I’m not a big fan of being the center of attention, so this kind of class was perfect for me. Below are the recipes we used in my class if you would like to give it a try!

Bath Salts:

2 cups of Epsom Saltwww.dropsofnourishment.com

4 tablespoons of Baking Soda

6-8 drops of your favorite Essential Oil

Mix really well the Epsom salt and baking soda. Add your favorite essential oil and mix well.

Suggested Use: Add a couple of spoonful’s to your warm bathwater and enjoy!

Relaxing: Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Frankincense

Anxiety: Calming Blend, Joyful Blend, and Grounding Blend

Body Aches and Pains: Soothing Blend, Lemongrass, and Sandalwood

Colds and Flu: Protective Blend and Rosemary

Sugar Scrub:

½ cup White Sugarwww.dropsofnourishment.com

½ cup Fractionated Coconut Oil

10-12 drops of your favorite Essential Oil

Mix sugar and coconut oil together, then add essential oil and mix well.

Suggested Use: Put some of the sugar scrub on your hands and rub together, let sit for a couple of minutes for extra softness. Rinse off with warm water and apply your favorite lotion afterwards.

The sugar scrub is my favorite of the too! My hands felt so soft and smooth, even my daughters loved it!
