Please note: I only recommend using the highest quality oils on the market, which is why you'll only see references to Young Living in this post. Please visit Young Living for more information.
Coconut Oil 1/2 Cup
Shea Butter 1/2 Cup
Beeswax 1 Tbsp
Cedarwood Essential Oil 15 Drops
Orange Essential Oil 15 Drops
For Extra Zzz Rub add:
Valerian Essential Oil 5 Drops
Lavender EO - 5 Drops
Peace & Calming EO 3 Drops
Melt Beeswax, Shea Butter and Coconut oil in a double boiler (or a pot filled with water and a glass Pyrex measure cup). Once everything is melted together, remove from heat and let sit on counter for about 10 minutes. I don't like to heat my oils up so I let the mixture cool before I add them.
Add your oils, and stir well. The Valerian isn't the best smell so you made want to add a few more drops of your favorite to mask it. Once you have your finished product though the Valerian usually isn't too bad.
After your oils are added, place your bowl of melted rub into the fridge, it's best to put the mixture into a glass or metal bowl that you can use a mixer with.
Once your Zzz..Rub has a almost solid consistency, pull out of the fridge. You don't want it to be completely solid as it will be near impossible to mix. The middle can be pretty soft and it will still work just fine.
Use an egg beater or stand up mixer and beat until it forms peaks just as whip cream would.
Place product into a glass jar for storing, makes 4 oz.
You now have your Zzz Rub!
How to use: Since your feet have the most pores of any other part of your body, this is where I like to suggest you use it. Give your feet a generous rub down, climb in bed and start dreaming! If you find that it didn't work as well as you hoped, that's OK try again the next night and add a little more Zzz...Rub to your massage. The reason for this may be because your body isn't used to these oils and you need to build them up in your body before they will work to their fullest potential.
