- Massage a dime-size amount into the affected areas

- Don't fill bottle completely to make room to shake mixture each time as essential oils do not dissolve in the water and will separate within a few minutes
Create, in a sealed glass container, a mixture of each oil listed below
For external use only - apply a small amount of mixture directly to the affected area(s) by gently rubbing to absorb into the skin. Seal container for future use. Apply at least twice a day until condition improves.

- Do Not Swallow
- your mouth may be sensitive to some oils
- your skin may be sensitive to some oils - your skin may be sensitive to some oils - your skin may be sensitive to some oils - Generally, it is best to spray on your clothing and not directly on your skin which may be sensitive to some oils
- Some essential oils may stain fabric
- your skin may be sensitive to some oils. Stop use if irritation (pain or itching or redness) develops.
Options N/A Substitute more of the Essential Oils you do have with those listed that you don't have. - The longer the mixture sits, the stronger it will become. So, if a milder scent is preferred, begin using it sooner. Simply check on the fragrence from time to time and use when it's to your liking. - substitute Coconut Oil for another desired Carrier Oil (olive, almond, jojoba, etc.)
- use any combination, or all, of the listed essential oils
- use in conjunction with Cayenne Pepper, Ginger Root and Turmeric (curcumin) dietary supplements to treat pain and inflamation associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.
- Use Wild Lettuce
- select any other combination of these Essential Oils for a specific pest
- to add more varieties of oils, divide the number of drops by the number of the desired oils. To be less strong of a mixture, use fewer drops. Be sure to keep the total percentage of essential oils under 15% of the total mixture for safety
- add .5 ounces of jojoba oil for its moisturizing properties
Many find that a separate mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar & Witch Hazel (1/4 cup each) along with 6 drops each of cypress, frankincense, lavender, tea tree, geranium and lemon essential oils helps lower swelling and improves vein appearance within just a few weeks. Add .5 ounce of jojoba oil to fight wrinkles and .5 ounce of avocado oil to moisturize and treat dark circles under eyes.
