In this modern guide, you will find more than 100 do-it-yourself essential oil recipes, rituals, and suggestions—most of which take less than 15 minutes—including:
Rosemary and Cedarwood Face Toner: a grounding toner for when you are craving the serenity of a hike in the woods.

Fig and Eucalyptus Scrub: a decadent yet super-simple body scrub for pampering yourself.
Peppermint and Pink Grapefruit Shower Spray: a natural way to keep your shower ultra-fresh.
The book guides you through ways to customize your beauty, body, and home routines—turning them into easy yet sophisticated wellness experiences. Learn how to create a custom face oil for your skin type; do a facial lymphatic massage; make a Mediterranean-inspired botanical foot soak; and blend unique essential oil diffuser aromas for your home.
