I have really gotten into the world of essential oils, and absolutely enjoy sharing my love of them with visiting friends and family. When I have a diffuser going with blends that evoke relaxation and calm, I feel my home has serenity, that it is a place where people want to come to escape the craziness of the world around them, to take a deep breath and finally relax.
If they are staying the night, I love giving them a custom epsom salt bath mix with essential oils like frankincense for inflammation in the body and lavender for calming of the mind and to help with sleep. Personal touches like this make the person feel extra special as a guest in my home, and that means the most to me.
Having custom-made roller bottle blends for each person is a great parting token, too, so that when they leave your home, they take with them a gift you know will remind them of you, and also help them with a real issue they might be having.
