Mini Review 

This is the first of three mini reviews today! So I hope you enjoy this super short reviews! 

This book isn't really one you read cover to cover, it does give the history of oils and how to use them but still it's full of amazing recipes for essential oils! If you like essential oils, then you'll love this! It's got recipes for depression, anxiety, nightmares, and even paranoia. It's also got other good things as well like passion, love, balance, luck, and peace.

I'm going to share one of my favorites for balance.

It's a bath salt recipe.

6 drops of vetiver oil
6 drops of jasmine oil
6 drops of clary sage oil
2 drops of lavender oil
3 cups of salt
1 tablespoon carrier oil
1 tablespoon of milk

Any salt type is fine to use for this, add all the oils together with the salt and make sure it's well blended. Leave the mixture in a dark area for 24 hours and then stir it again.  When ready, add the bath water and the milk and 1/2 cup of your bath salt and there you go! Let the mixture seep into your skin and help you bring balance to your life.
