Hmm, Sunday!! A day that is known in our house as massage day, a day everyone has to treat themselves a day of pampering 🙂 .
Massaging -A soothing, gentle, and potentially sensual way to relieve exhausted and fatigued muscles. Stroking or patting are the easy ways to massage yourself.
Making your own massage oil-
Almond oil / sunflower oil /coconut oil/ olive oil – any of these oil can be used.
To start the series – Today it is Rosemary oil.
Rosemary oil is one of the most popular oils. It has become important to us due to its various health benefits including its ability to stimulate hair growth, boost mental activity, relieve respiratory problems and reduce pain.
In “The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy,” Valerie Ann Worwood writes that the benefits of rosemary include relieving muscle soreness and pain. It also helps treat respiratory conditions, such as the common cold, sinusitis and flu. It also stimulates the central nervous system, thereby affecting the brain and promoting mental clarity, says Patricia Davis in her book, “Aromatherapy, An A to Z.”
- Coconut oil ( if you are using this oil for body massage and olive oil if you are making it add flavor to your pizza or bread dough )
- Rosemary – I got the rosemary flakes from a local organic store.
- Glass jar – Pack the jar with rosemary flakes and then fill the jar with the preferred oil to cover the flakes.
Tightly close the jar and place the jar on your sunny window.
Use the oil as your massage oil, few drops in your hair conditioner, few drops to your bath water or to add flavor to your cooking.
Yes, I did used the rosemary oil to bake my Sunday brunch bread too 🙂
So go ahead enjoy a glowing skin and yummy bread.
