  • Carrier Oil (Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, or Grape Seed Oil recommended): Avocado carrier oil is an odorless healing oil that is silky to the touch and easily absorbed by the skin. Its anti-wrinkle and regenerative properties prevent the early onset of visible signs of aging by keeping the skin hydrated, nourished, elastic, and soft.

  • Bergamot Essential Oil: This energizing oil is known to boost blood circulation and to reduce nervous tension, stress, and anxiety, which in turn replaces negative mental states with feelings of joy, refreshment, and vigor. The relief of heavy emotional stressors such as sadness may lead to reduced blood pressure, relaxation, and better regulation of the sleep hormones serotonin and dopamine, which may lead to better sleep.

  • Mandarin Essential Oil: This sedative oil relaxes the nerves and promotes feelings of calm, eliminating stress and anxiety.

  • Lavender Essential Oil: This calming oil is a popular choice for those looking to relieve both emotional and physical stress ranging from sadness to headaches. Its soothing scent diminishes feelings of restlessness and exhaustion.

  • Lemongrass Essential Oil: This sedative oil is commonly used to relieve anxiety, irritability, and sleeplessness, improving the length and quality of sleep.
