Disc Cap Bottles
Use the bottles with the disc caps to store carrier oils. Example:
Bottle #1: 1 oz jojoba or other carrier oil only. Be sure to label your bottle. You can use it unscented, or keep it for a later time to make something else.
Bottle #2: Pre-made massage oil of your choice. It depends what you will need. I prefer a relaxing type of blend such as:
This recipe is suitable for children and pregnancy friendly after the first trimester. You can use it as a body oil, massage oil or bath oil. If you mix it with a dash of your previously mentioned hand soap, you can have a delightful bubble bath to boot! See how this works? Continue reading DIY aromatherapy travel kit
