Until the Winter Solstice the nights just get longer and longer, making us hungry for more rest and sleep just as our To Do lists get longer, too. What a trying time the season can be!
Let our Solstice Blend help you celebrate the hopeful message of renewal as the sun returns and the days begin to grow longer. This simple essential oil formula can uplift your spirits and help you keep your balance and feel relaxed amid the holiday bustle and stress. Place a few drops in your bath for a refreshing respite, or combine with carrier oil or alcohol to dab on pulse points, or place a drop or two on a hanky to sniff throughout the day whenever you need to clear your head. And did we mention that it smells totally divine? It also makes a thoughtful holiday gift. Find out the simple formula, here:
Balsam Pine essential oil
Sweet Orange essential oil
Peppermint essential oil
Combine equal amounts in a clean glass container. This formula will keep indefinitely.
