Give the gift of relaxation to someone with a hectic schedule.
1. Wash the bottle in hot, soapy water, rinse, and let it dry. Stuff dried flowers into the bottle for decoration.
2. Blend the oils in a separate container. For Soothing Bath Oil, mix the almond oil with 24 drops of lavender essential oil and 8 drops of rose essential oil. For the Stimulating Bath Oil, blend the carrier oil (soy oil or one of the suggested substitutes) with 24 drops of rosemary essential oil and 8 drops of juniper essential oil. For each mixture, break open 8 capsules of vitamin E and stir the contents into the oil mixture.
3. Using the funnel, pour the oil mixture into the bottle and cork it. To seal the cork with paraffin, place the wax in the coffee can and stand the can in a saucepan with several inches of water. Bring the water to simmering and let the paraffin melt. Dip the corked top into the melted paraffin several times to seal it and to keep the closure airtight. Tie additional dried flowers to the neck of the bottle with raffia.
