Pulse points are popular – think aromatherapy on the go – and even better, they are ever so easy to make. Why not try this one, a relaxing roll-on. Made with Lavender essential oil, known to have relaxing properties. Its aroma is known to relieve nervous tension. Happy mind, happy body.
WHAT DO YOU NEED?
A bit of time: 5 mins
A few bits n bobs, see below.
THE BITS N BOBS
1. 1 roller ball applicator, typically 10ml size.
2. Grapeseed oil – I like this oil as it’s good value and it absorbs reasonably quickly so no greasy leftovers.
3. Lavender essential oil. TOP TIP – now you can buy cheap Lavender essential oil that stinks like cat pee or you can invest in a decent Lavender essential oil from the likes of Tisserand. By the way, I like the smell of High Altitude Lavender oil (believe me, not all Lavender aromas are equal).
4. A glass beaker and something to stir with. Remember plastic is reluctant to let go of the scent of the oils so best not to use plastic.
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HAPPY ROLL ON
Mix the grapeseed oil (10ml) with 5 drops of the Lavender essential oil. Give it a good stir.
Pour your mixture into your roller ball container.
Make yourself a sticker to go on the rollerball applicator. Put the date on it. This is so you can dispose of it after 6 months. No doubt you will have used it all up way before then but it’s better to be safe. Have a go at making your sticker, feel like a pro with your own labelled goodies.
Get yourself into a really stressful situation. We are all different. I can simulate this by checking the biscuit stash and seeing all the Choc hob nobs have been snaffled.
Apply your wonderfully aromatic pulse point to your wrists, behind your ear, on your temples or all 3 places!
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Enjoy your new happy self, pulled back from the brink with the help of your DIY Lavender pulse point.
