Natural Therapy

Did you know that there are over 200 references to healing oils, aromatics, incense, and ointments throughout the Old and New Testaments of the Bible?

Aromatherapy/healing oils was the topic at todays seminar at SAMmy's. Jen who is an aromatherapy practitioner gave the lesson which included many biblical references which was very interested, especially for me who would have never corolated the two. We had the opportunity to make a bath salt and I cannot wait to use it!!
The recipe is as follows:
1 Cup Epsom Salt
1 Tbsp Baking Soda
5-10 Drops of Essential Oil (the real stuff, not synthetic...huge difference)
1-2 drops of Food Coloring
For a moisturing scrub: Add 1\4 Cup of jojoba oil.

We had a lovely luncheon which consisted of Asian food, ie. rice, chicken curry, sausage wontons, and brownies. After lunch we put together our bath salts, did a parafin dip, and even had a few minute massage. Lovely.
