Essential oils make creating healthy scents simple. Whether in a body spray, bath oil or bath salts, essential oils smell wonderful and can help us feel calm, energetic or warmed.

One of the simplest ways to use essential oils is in a mist that can be used as a light body spray or an aromatherapy room spray: Combine 10 to 15 drops essential oil with water and witch hazel in a spray bottle and attach a label and a ribbon. 

To make a moisturizing bath or massage oil, add 10 to 12 drops essential oil to 6 ounces carrier oil such as almond or jojoba.
