What happens when you combine three calming essential oils with Shea butter?
You create a soothing, aromatic balm that can help relieve nervous tension, insomnia, anxiety and headaches. This natural remedy can be stored at room temperature, lasts up to one year, and can be safely used up to three times every day.
You can put this balm together yourself in about 15 minutes. Keep it in your medicine cabinet, purse, briefcase or in a drawer at the office to help restore tranquility when life becomes hectic.
This balm is highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way. You will never need to use more than a pea-sized amount. Massage the balm into your temples, throat, under your nose, on your chest, pulse points (inside wrists or elbows, back of the knees), the nape of your neck, or just underneath the ear lobes. You can also enjoy the balm's benefits by using it as an inhalant. Breathe deeply from the jar for about 10 to 15 breaths.
Caution: If you use more than a pea-sized portion of the balm at one time, you may experience grogginess or lightheadedness.
