Back from vacation: little aromatic recipes for my back to school

 The end of the holidays is always a special time. For a smooth transition, don't hesitate to extend the summer feeling with a few aromatic recipes for beauty and well-being. Hair, skin, mood: take care of yourself! 

Extend your tan:
Tanned skin is often quickly damaged when you return from holiday, and a beautiful tan can sometimes turn into grey crocodile skin. As soon as you get back, maintain your summer tan with daily massages using an aromatic oil that makes the skin glow for longer, thanks to the provitamin A that gives it radiance.

  • 10 ml carrot vegetable oil
  • 10 ml apricot kernel oil
  • 10 ml argan oil.

Add 5 drops of bergamot essential oil and 10 drops of lemon essence for an invigorating scent.

Mix and apply generously morning and evening.

Bad feet and hands:
Have your nails and hands been damaged by beach games or camping fires? Corny feet? Take the time to nourish them intensely with organic shea butter, to which you add a few drops of argan oil and rose geranium EO. Massage hands, nails, cuticles and heels generously every night before bed. From time to time, before moisturising your feet, think about exfoliating them: mix coarse salt with oil and one or two drops of real lavender or lemon EO (be careful not to expose yourself to the sun afterwards).

Dry hair:
Moisturise your hair with Argan or Avocado oil overnight before washing thoroughly.

Lack of energy?
Think about going to bed earlier with little transition rituals like diffusing soothing EO. There are ready-made sprays like Aromanoctis to diffuse half an hour before bedtime. In the morning, apply and massage the area above the kidneys with the following mixture: - 2 drops of black spruce EO - 2 drops of Scots pine EO - 5 drops of hazelnut vegetable oil.
