I was recently told about an amazing massage cream that not only alleviates headaches and tension, but the smell alone has a wonderfully soothing and relaxing magic to it. The best part is you can create it yourself.
I adore making my own beauty products with natural ingredients because I know what goes into them, it’s a money saver and natural is always better.
I told you about my secret weight loss cream here and it’s based on the same principle.
You need Aqueous Cream (non scented), Lavender essential oil and Chamomile essential oil and a glass jar or tub.
Scoop out enough Aqueous cream into the jar…
Add the Chamomile essential oil – I added 13 drops for 2013 and for luck.
Chamomile essential oil is used as an anti spasmodic, anti depressant and anti inflammatory.
Add the Lavender essential oil – again I added 13 drops. I suggest you don’t use too many – essential oils are powerful and this is to create a soothing affect, so you don’t want the smell to be too overpowering. Perhaps 10 drops of each is best – I may have overdone it with 13. Oops.
Add less if you’re sensitive to smell.
Make sure you add equal amount of drops from each essential oil.
Lavender oil removes nervous tension, relieves pain, disinfects scalp and skin, enhances blood circulation and treats respiratory problems.
Mix together well to really make sure the oils mix into the cream.
Apply it on your neck and shoulders and use this whenever you are feeling stressed. You can also use it as a hand cream and inhale deeply for the scent to soothe.
