Before I ever made soap, I was deep into the unique healing benefits of herbs and their potent essential oil properties.
Growing and playing with them in foods and teas, I would always include a handful into the childrens evening bath. So soothing, they cleanse and heal any wounds from playing outside all day. We live at the edge of a cypress swamp, our property backs up to Newnans lake and Prairie creek runs along side and the Hawthorne bike trail, making running and playing with critters an all day affair. To which I would use the herbs and oils to relax cleanse and get them ready for bed. Now 19 and 21, they still enjoy the many benefits of essential oils, as our go to for chemical free scents in our home and on our bodies. We use The Ultrasonic diffuser, by simply adding:
4 ounces of tap water and 4 drops essential oils for 8 full hours of pure bliss….so simple and shuts itself off when the water is gone. Here are some of our family’s favorite blends. Energizing: 1 drop Peppermint 1 drop Rosemary 2 drops Cinnamon
