The Premium Starter Kit Spa Experience

Pamper yourself, or someone you love, all with one kit! Here is how to use your Premium Starter Kit for a relaxing spa experience.

************************************

SPA ATMOSPHERE: Create your spa atmosphere by dimming the lights, playing soft music, and diffusing calming essential oil or essential oil blend such as Lavender, Citrus Fresh, or Stress Away.

MASSAGE: Prepare a soothing massage oil by combining a couple drops of PanAway with a little carrier oil, then gently massage into tired muscles and feet to help them unwind from a long day. Whether you spend 30 minutes or 60 minutes on a massage, take your time and allow the aromas, music, and calming atmosphere to take over your senses as you escape the cares of the day.

FACIAL: Frankincense is a wonderful skin supporting essential oil to incorporate into a skincare routine or facial massage. An easy moisturizer can be made with coconut oil and a couple drops of Frankincense essential oil.

FOOT SOAK: Place a few drops of Raven along with 1/2 cup Epsom Salts into a foot bath or bowl of hot water. Allow the feet to spend some time here while casually flipping through your EO Magazine included with the kit.

SPA WATER: Place a drop of any of the Vitality essential oils into a glass of water and serve after the spa treatment.

SPA DRINK: Tear open one of the NingXia Red packets and pour over ice. Slowly sip for a wonderful way to replenish the body.

CLEAN UP: When you are finished pampering, or being pampered, use the Thieves Household Cleaning Packet to clean up. Pour the contents into a spray bottle, fill the remaining bottle with water and begin spraying and cleaning as you go.

Lemongrass

geranial, limonene, and beta-caryophyllene.

Cymbopogon flexuosus

 

Lemongrass essential oil has origins in Southeast Asia, though it is now cultivated in countries around the world.

Aromatic Benefits

An essential oil, when inhaled, can reach the emotional center of the brain within seconds. This is one of the incredible benefits of aromatherapy. Try diffusing Lemongrass for an aroma that can inspire a sense of clarity and relaxation for you and your family as well as for its purifying properties that make for a refreshing, clean smelling home.

Try this: Make your own substitute for chemical-based air fresheners. Add up to 10 drops to a small spray bottle filled with distilled water and spritz it over carpets, furniture, and linens to eliminate stale odors.

Topical Benefits

Lemongrass offers many benefits when applied topically. It is cleansing to the skin and warming to the muscles.

Try this: Dilute Lemongrass with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for massage after workouts, sports, or just a long and busy day. Add Lemongrass to your nightly face regimen for its skin-cleansing benefits.

Companion Oils

Lemongrass pairs well with basil, cedarwood, clary sage, eucalyptus, geranium, jasmine, lavender, tea tree, and rosemary.
