Scents, Unguents, Lotions and Oils

I was looking through my files tonight and came across a compilation of aromatherapy concoctions and I thought I would share some of them with you.

The manner of use is described after the listing of essential oils.
All the usual disclaimers apply – these are not “cures”, and you should consult your doctor etc, etc. Other than that, enjoy the wonderful world of essential oils. Remember, that these are not to be taken internally – they are to be used in burners, massage oils, and similar.

Anti-Arthritic Blend
Frankincense – 10 drops
Eucalyptus – 15 drops
Juniper – 10 drops
Lavender – 10 drops
