The naturopath course study at the moment is aromatherapy
- so I'll take a study break and share what I've been up to.
I had to choose 1-3 essential oils to use - so I chose lemon, peppermint and eucalyptus oil.
All beneficial to burn while studying as they keep the mind alert and focused
Today was a very first for me - I was waiting outside the local bottle store at 10am for opening time. For some vodka (as you do Monday mornings at 10am) Blue vodka is the best by the way as it is the highest strength. (excuse my knitted dish clothes they are well used and a tad scruffy, time to knit some new ones me thinks) PST have I said how much I love my new red kettle?
I wanted it to make some window and kitchen cleaner.
2 cups of water
¼ cup vodka
5 drops lemon essential oil
2 drops peppermint essential oil
3 drops eucalyptus essential oil
Shake and use on windows, kitchen sink and bench top.
The vodka is the dispersant and also alcohol kills surface germs effectively and vodka doesn't streak. Lemon essential oil is antiseptic, bactericidal. Peppermint essential oil is also antiseptic. Eucalyptus is antibacterial, antiseptic, and antiviral
Some before and after photos. Very pleased with my new cleaner! Project for the week will be to clean all the windows in house.
Exfoliating Foot Scrub
1 cup of Himalayan pink salt
4 Tablespoons of coconut oil
6 drops of lemon essential oils to help remove dead skin
3 drops of peppermint essential oil to help soften the skin.
Mix well together and spoon into a small wide-mouth glass jar. (you can get these darling jars at Briscoes)
To use the exfoliating foot scrub, place a small amount in the palm and scrub over the feet especially the heels. Follow up with a scrub from with some pumice collected from the beach. Rinse off in water.
Tomorrow I'll make a foot balm using essential oils
