Strawberry Lavender Lemonade!

Having dined at an exclusive health spa restaurant (Thank You Robert Redfern, from England!) and having this most delicious beverage - - - I have been making it ever since!

1 Cup of Sugar [I use raw brown sugar, but you can also use stevia]
1 Tablespoon grated lemon rind [you can also use about 15 drops of Lemon Essential Oil]
1/2 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice [from about six large lemons, I have a tree]
3/4 cup fresh pureed strawberries
10 drops of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
6 Cups cold water
Ice cubes

In a jar with tight-fitting lid, combine sugar, rind, and boiling water; shake until sugar dissolves.  Add lemon juice; shake well.  Add fresh pureed strawberries and 10 drops of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia).  Chill.  Before serving, add water and ice cubes.  Makes 2 quarts.

Purifying Lavender-Citrus Bath

Grapefruit (
Citrus x paradise) and Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oils, combine mineral salts or a squirt of The Bath Gel Base, makes a refreshing and detoxifying blend.

3 Tablespoons of The Bath Gel Base
5 Drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)  Essential Oil
5 Drops Grapefruit (Citrus x paradise) Essential Oil

***Ed Note: If you do not have The Bath Gel Base [Code 3751, contains all-natural dispersing agents allowing the essential oils to layer throughout the water!] you can substitute 1 Cup Epsom Salt + 1 Cup baking soda.  Combine both in a covered plastic container and add the essential oils  - - shake well


Strawberry-Lavender Body Scrub

Fresh strawberries and lavender essential oil make a fragrant and natural exfoliating scrub.  Yogurt and honey are softening, and bran acts as the polishing agent.

½ cup whole-milk yogurt
½ cup fresh strawberries
1Ttablespoon honey
½ cup wheat bran
5 drops Lavender
(Lavandula angustifolia) Essential Oil

Blend the yogurt, strawberries, and honey in a blender until smooth.  Stir in wheat bran and lavender essential oil.  Wet your body in a warm shower, and apply the scrub to arms, legs, neck and chest.  Massage gently in a circular motion, rinse well, pat dry and you are set to go!


 Aromatherapy Body Polish

Sea salt is comely used as a body polish (but it is an even better body detoxifier!), but sugar (sugar is NOT a detoxifier) works just as well and is gentler.  V-6 Mixing Oil  moisturizes dry skin, and Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) and Lavender  (Lavandula angustifolia) are rejuvenating for the skin.

½ cup unrefined sugar or sea salt
2 Tablespoons  V-6 Mixing Oil [or almond oil, or coconut oil]
3 Drops Frankincense essential oil
3 Drops Lavender essential oil

Mix all ingredients together.  Dampen your skin with a warm shower and while standing in the bathtub spread the mixture on your skin in small circular massage-type strokes.  Rinse well with warm water.  Be extra careful while standing because this mixture will make the tub slick, you may wish to use a rubber bath mat  when doing home washes, exfoliating or body scrubs.

Summertime Bath

Roman Chamomile
or Lavender essential oil can take the swelling and sting out of a sunburn and windburn.  For a cooling bath after sun or wind exposure, mix 5 drops chamomile or lavender essential oil , 3 drops geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) essential oil, and 1 to 2 drops peppermint (Mentha xpiperita) essential oil with 1 Tablespoon Bath Gel Base; mix well and add to a tub of warm to cool bathwater.
R. Chamomile and Lavender are two of the top most sought after essential oils to be used on  children.  This is great for pets as well!

Lavender  Antibacterial Spray

This spray smells wonderful and can double as a disinfectant and air freshener.  It is perfect for garbage cans. [Ed--- It is perfect for pet bedding or pet kenneling areas.] 

1 cup warm water
25 drops lavender essential oil

Combine water and oil in a spray bottle and shake well to blend.  To use, spray into the air or onto the surface you’re disinfecting.  Also relieves sunburn!

Lavender Sunburn Relief

For cool and soothing relief of sunburn mix 24 drops of Lavender (Lavandula angustifoila) , 2 ounces of Aloe vera gel or Miracle 2  Neutralizer Gel,  ¼ teaspoon vitamin E oil and ¼ teaspoon Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar;  shake well and pour into a spray bottle.  Store spray in refrigerator and shake before each use.

Ed NoteI always save my used Thieves Spray bottles!  These are great to make my own sprays in.  The dark colored food-grade plastic container keeps the oil frequencies active (light bottles cause the molecular structure of the essential oil to enlarge and stops the deep cell penetration).  The Miracle2 Neutralizer and Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar are available by calling 1-877-817-9829 or www.ThePowerMall.com

Lavender - Rosemary Clarifying Rinse
Apple cider vinegar cuts through the dulling residue left by styling products and commercial shampoos.  Lavender (Lavandula angustifoila) and Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)  are beneficial for all hair types.

1 Cup Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar
10 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil
10 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil

Mix together in a glass bottle and store.  To use, add 2 Tablespoons of the tincture to 1 cup of water and massage through hair, after shampooing and rinsing.  Rinse again after conditioner is applied.

Aromatherapy Conditioning Treatment
2 Tablespoons  (more for long hair) of cold-pressed coconut oil
10 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifoila) essential oil

In a small container, combine cold-pressed coconut oil (may need to warm coconut oil with container set inside bowl of hot water to liquefy it) with Lavender Essential Oil.  Dampen your hair with warm water and massage this oil mixture into your scalp and hair with your finger tips.  If your hair has a tendency to be oily, apply only to the ends of your hair.  Put on a shower cap and allow the oils to remain for 30 minutes.  Follow by shampooing and rinsing well with warm water.

NOTE:  Dr. Morton Walker in his book Bald No More recommends adding Rosemary Essential Oil (to the above protocol) to enhance hair growth!
