if you prefer. Pour the water and alcohol into a bottle,
then add the oil. Cap and shake well. Apply to your skin
with a clean cloth.

This is helpful for a stiff neck or swollen glands.

Migraine relief

Tests have shown Marjoram relaxes brain waves,
eases muscle spasms and is very effective for insomnia.

2 parts Marjoram EO
1 part Lavender EO

Try blending and infusing it into the air or place in a cotton ball and hold under nose.
You can make this into an inhaler for on the go times or as a gift to a friend who suffers from headaches.


Minty Foot Rub

Although this says it´s for the feet, you might enjoy it for a light hand lotion too! Add a little Grapefruit or Mandarin along with the Peppermint to give it a new exciting scent!

Massage lotion - 2 oz
Peppermint - 4 to 6 drops

Add the Peppermint oil to the massage lotion, mix and blend well. Then apply liberally to your feet and massage. Relax and put your feet up afterwards for several minutes!
