Christmas is the time of year for family, social events, giving and receiving but for many of us it is also a time of exhaustion, long work hours and emotional stress. I don't know about you but it seems to either bring out the very best or the very worst in people. I worked in retail for many years and although there is a great festive buzz in the air, the long hours on your feet and dealing with frazzled shoppers can leave you feeling less than joyous.
If you are a hospitality worker, hairdresser, retailer, teacher or someone in need of a a bit of TLC - this soothing soak is for you.
You will need:
- 3 drops of the mighty Frankincense
- 3 drops of ylang ylang
- 3 drops of vetiver
- 3 drops of lavender
- 2 tablespoons of unscented castile soap
While the bath is running combine the essential oils with the castile soap and then pour into the water.
The combination of essential oils in this soak will leave you feeling grounded, relaxed, soothed and renewed. It is perfect just before bed but if soaking in a bath ain't your thing, decreased the essential oil quantities by half, grab a bucket and give your tired feet a bit of love.
If you would like to know more about how essential oils can benefit your overall emotional and physical wellness, please let me know. I am incredibly passionate about these oils and firmly believe every household needs them. Please check the ‘essential oil’ and ‘workshop’ page of this website. Alternatively, drop me an email and I will be happy to chat xx
