Have you got your Inner Mermaid or Merman on yet?
In yesterday’s post, I suggested connecting to the water element to help balance emotions and to pamper yourself spa-style with an aromatic sea salt bath.
And of course, I’ve already had several requests for a DIY formulation for essential oils. I love this formulation from the folks at Aura Cacia (but you can use any brand of good quality essential oil that you like) and I’ve used it several times. This blend supports the Sacral Chakra, which is associated with water, so perfect for that pampering sensual bath. You can also use this blend as a room mister.
Sacral Chakra Essential Oil Blend
- 12 drops ylang ylang EO (cananga odorata)
- 12 drops sandalwood EO (santalum album)
- 12 drops mandarin orange EO (citrus reticulata)
If you don’t have sandalwood, you can substitute Texas Cedarwood EO (juniperus ashei / mexicana) or Atlas Cedarwood EO (cedrus atlantica)
To use in the bath
Add these essential oils to one cup of your favourite bath salt blend. I like to use a mixture of different salts, such as Himalayan Pink Salt, Dead Sea Salt, Epsom Sals and good old regular sea salt. You can also add up to 1/4 cup of baking soda to soften the skin.
To use as a room mister
Blend your oils first and then add to a 60ml spray bottle (dark blue or amber glass is best) and then add 60ml of distilled water. Shake before spraying in your space.
You can also scale this formula up or down very easily, as it requires equal parts of each essential oil. Be sure to follow dilution guidelines with your carrier oils or salts. A little essential oil goes a long way.
