Aromatherapy massages can be relaxing and good for your well-being

Aromatherapy massages can be relaxing and good for your well-being. Here are a few combinations of essential oils that can relieve stress, help you sleep, or calm your muscles.

Mix one ounce of a carrier oil (such as sweet almond) with 15-30 drops of essential oils.

  • For stress relief use 15 drops clary sage, 10 drops lemon, and 5 drops lavender.
  • To help you sleep use 15 drops sandalwood and 5 drops jasmine.
  • To soothe sore muscles use 3 drops ginger, 2 drops black pepper, 5 drops peppermint, and 5 drops eucalyptus.

These oils may be available at your local health food store or through a professional aromatherapist. Once mixed, store in a dark, airtight container, and use one-half to one teaspoon for each massage.
