How To Use


Bath – Fill the tub with comfortably warm water.  In a small non-reactive bowl, combine 1 tsp of milk with 4 to 6 drops of the above blend.  Add the mixture to the tub and agitate the water to disperse the oil.  Soak for 30 minutes.  Massage any floating oil droplets onto your skin.

Massage – Combine 4 teaspoons of grape seed or sweet almond oil with 8 drops of the above blend in a small non-reactive bowl.  Mix well and massage on your body.
