A festive, spicy, fruity blend for pleasing the senses. I made this blend up as a gift for a friend who did not like floral smells.

15 drops lemongrass essential oil 5 drops patchouli essential oil
20 drops tangerine essential oil 15 drops sweet basil essential oil
5 drops bay essential oil
Pour Basic Body Oil Blend or carrier oil of choice into a jar and add the essential oils, drop by drop. Cap jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake well. The oil is ready to use. Makes 4 oz.
Rosemary Basil and Peppermint Wake-Up Oil All
A stimulating, refreshing blend for invigorating circulation and waking up. This essential oil blend can be used as a smelling blend to wake up the brain during long nights of work or study. To use simply inhale the odor of the blend straight out of the bottle or place some oil on a tissue and keep near nose or you can apply some oil directly under your nose but be sure it is not too strong for you.
