    This is a facial scrub but it can be used for body scrub. If your skin is sensitive rub very gently. Combine: 1/2 cup olive oil, wheat germ or coconut oil 1 cup of fine sugar Add 5 or 6 drops of your favorite essential oil. Pick oils from these for your skin type: Normal skin: lavender, neroli, orange, cedarwood, geranium, jasmine, geranium, roman chamomile, rose, rosewood, Ylang-ylang, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) Combination skin: Geranium, rosewood, Ylang-ylang, rose, geranium, neroli Aging dry skin: cedarwood, carrot seed, clary sage, jasmine, geranium, lavender, orange, neroli, sandalwood, rosewood, rose, vetiver, ylang ylang Oily skin: cedarwood, geranium, clary sage, lavender, ylang ylang, peppermint, cypress, frankincense, patchouli, Roman chamomile, German chamomile, sandalwood, juniper, melissa, coriander, grapefruit, lemon, rose, rosemary, eucalyptus, myrtle, neroli Sensitive skin: rose, helichrysum, neroli, rosewood, jasmine, Roman chamomile, German chamomile, neroli Preparation: Mix all ingredients well in a glass or stainless steel bowl, mug or cup. (DO NOT USE PLASTIC or Foam cups or containers, the oils will ingest it). The sugar scrubs work best on dry skin so apply the mixture before washing face or showering. If you are using it as a body scrub, you may want to use a loofah mitt. Using small amounts of your facial scrub in your hands, rub the mixture over your face or body in a circular motion. Using a clean washcloth, (little or no soap) wash your face, removing the dead skin cells. Rinse well then with a towel, pat yourself dry. Follow up with a nice moisturizer.

  • Valor and EFT To Release Fear Of Going To The Dentist
    Valor essential oil blend from Young Living is one of my favorite oils. I use it every day with EFT. This week I had to make a trip to the dentist office which is something I have avoided like the plague. To say the dentist terrifies me is a gross understatement. Sometimes we have to face our fears. I broke the crown of a really old root canal and it needed to be fixed. It turned out that the remaining part was split so badly that the tooth couldn't be saved and I had to have it surgically removed. Time to put Valor Oil and EFT to the test. All I can say is WOW! I used Valor along with two EFT audio sessions I had bought from Brad Yates quite some time ago. I had bought several of Brad's eTappings for abundance but I bought the dentist tapping sessions because I knew I had a fear of the dentist and I knew I would someday be thankful I did. I saved the EFT audio sessions and never used them until this week. People are always asking me if EFT really works or is it something that I just hope will work. I know it works because several years ago I released my fear of flying. Having that fear gone is really nice. Now when I get on planes I have no fear. I actually enjoy it. I used the EFT and Valor Oil the night before my dental appointment. I slept like a baby and had no worries or stress. I repeated the EFT sessions again the next morning as I was getting ready to go. Feeling AWESOME and no stress. I felt calm all the way, even in the dentists chair as he was getting ready to start working on me. This experience was a true test for me. I have known the power of EFT for quite some time but the removal of intense fear of the dentist drives the point home even stronger. Valor Oil blend is for courage and is one of the best oils to use with EFT. To use an essential oil to enhance your EFT sessions, put a couple drops of essential oil on your fingertips before you begin tapping the EFT points. If you have a fear of going to the dentist, you might want to use Brad Yates eTapping on Fear of The Dentist. He has a lot of other good ones on the list that you may benefit from.
