Fragrant henna with spikenard,
Spikenard and saffron,
Calamus and cinnamon,
With all trees of frankincense,
Myrrh and aloes,
With all the chief spices—
A fountain of gardens,
A well of living waters…
Song of Solomon 14:13-15
I am so glad God gave us essential oils. I am relaxing this evening after a nice hot bath, enveloped in the most intoxicating scents. I mixed rose, ylang ylang, jasmine, and orange essential oils with 2 oz. pure almond oil for a soothing body moisturizer; then I soaked in the hot bath. Ahhh…
Now I’m sitting in a room with frankincense diffusing all around me.
I know I’ve been sharing a lot about the amazing benefits of pure essential oils, and many of you have expressed interest in learning more. Not only will I be sharing more valuable info with you soon, but, I have a special surprise for you! Be sure to check my blog this week for some exciting contests and GIVE-AWAYS! Yep, that means FREE stuff!

Exotic Moisturizing or Massage Oil
2 oz. carrier oil (almond is good)

8 drops ylang ylang

Pour carrier oil into a clean, dark glass bottle. Add essential oils. Gently shake to blend before each use.
