For that special man in your life, ditch the Barbasol and give the gift of this soothing and uplifting shaving cream. Like many other personal care products, commercial shaving cream has parabens and artificial fragrances – which can be very harmful to our health. This blend contains Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Lavender. Get the recipe here and toss in a re-usable 4 ounce mason jar like this one.
Inside our basket we included Nature’s Truth Essential Oils, a pair of fuzzy socks (who doesn’t love fuzzy socks!?), DIY Homemade Bath Bombs, DIY Homemade Room Spray, and DIY No-Sew Rice Heating Pack. Everyone always wants to make sure that their houses look and smell amazing for company, so we bust our butts cleaning every last detail and cooking food for 3x the amount of people we invited. While the get together goes off without a hitch and no one realized that you completely forgot to scrub an entire section of the baseboards in the kitchen, you melt into a puddle of exhaustion the second you close the door behind the last guest. This type of exhaustion needs pampering and that’s exactly why this is the perfect hostess gift.
Regarding sore joints, my husband is a runner, and I have used various concoctions of lavender, lemon, and peppermint for his feet, especially when he was trail running long distances. We would put the oils in an espsom salt foot bath and he would find relief. As a rub, I like adding clove and helichrysum to a mix of lavender and/or peppermint. (Sorry I don’t have any specific recipes off-hand but found or altered many of mine from “The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy” book by Valerie Ann Worwood.) I hope this information helps and doesn’t further confuse.
Not very versed well in essential oils- I had bought a set similar to this with less options from another seller and found out while searching for more variety that particular seller was not selling a true essential oil. According to the reviewers for this, they are. I can definitely tell a difference between the two, but my favorite thing about this set is that they are MUCH easier to pour. Several drops come out vs. none at all with my other set, so that makes my life a fraction easier. The scents were great and loved the guide book that came with it, although I wish it had included more information than the little blurb they write per scent- like specific ways to use it instead of just the effects. Great product and will definitely only buy from Natrogix from now on!
