Slip into a warm tub with a few drops of any of our carefully curated 100% pure Lavender, Lemongrass, or Sweet Orange essential oils. They each have scads of uses for getting emotions in check, encouraging restful sleep or revitalizing for the workday. Lemongrass is known as a revitalizing agent. Sweet Orange is famous for its ability to ease anxiety.

Peppermint refreshes mind and spirit, and alleviates even a headache, according to the encyclopedic resource: Essential Oils Natural Remedies, The Complete A to Z Reference of Essential Oils for Health and Healing, from Althea Press.

When diluted, essential oils are also useful as massaging agents and in warm compresses for muscle pain and stiffness.

Note: Do not apply essential oils directly onto skin without testing a drop onto the underside of your forearm. As with many things in nature, some of us can be more sensitive than others. Always follow the maker’s instructions for best usage of the product before using any essential oil.
