I think you can get the essential oils from a health food store or herbal pharmacy. I think you can even get them from a craft store like Michael's or Hobby Lobby. If you live in the US that is.

Hi there,

Please mums remember that essential oils are NOT to be used during pregnancy!!!  They can even cause abortions, so do becareful.  It would be worth doing research first.  If you are going to a healthcare centre than they will be able to recommend the exact amount and how much dilution is needed.

It is a great thread though, and who of us don't need pampering???  smile  Thanks Althea!

Essential oils are dangerous before using oils or even drinking herbal teas know what you are using. Even herbal teas can cause abortions and problems. Only use essential oils when you have studied herbs and the oils. Pregnant woman should never use essential oils even in shampoos or lotions that are over the counter. Also children under 12 should never use oils directly to their skin or any herbal teas. Essentail oils must be diluted by a carrier oil before use on the skin. Never ingest essential oils either for anyone. You can not buy essential oils at Michaels they are not essential oils they are fragrant oils there is a difference if they do I haven't seen them. Essential oils are very expensive and dangerous. I teach herbs and oils at my local university and their uses. I have published several books and I am a natural health consultant so please know what i am saying is true. The laundry recipes and bath recipes for my children contain  less than 1% of essential oils. If diluted in a carrier oil correctly some oils can be used but with caution like lavender. But pregnant or nursing woman should not use any oils or drink herbal teas. Even if you use essential oils in a massage for the skin the oils still get into your blood stream through hair folicils. Useing oils, aromatherapy should be used under a liscened thereapist pregnant or not. Plus if you are breastfeeding do not eat parsley it will dry up your milk. Know the herbs that you are using before using them on yourself or your children.
You can make your own oils that are not as dangerous as the pure essential oils to use in your recipes. For example soapwort is an herb that you boil for making soap, that's where it gets its name.
Also someone mentioned using borax, it also is very dangerous to use and cause severe reactions to sensitive skin babies.
My recipes for soap and shampoo includes soapwort herb water, vegetable glycerin liquid, orange or citrus fruit water. Herb water is water from boiled herbs strained. Fruit water is a fresh fruit or dryed boiled in wter then strained, or you can use pure orange or lemon juice. For lotion I use jojoba oil,  natural beeswax, and herb water, and sometimes 1 drop of homemade oil, and a vitamin E capsule the liquid only. Shelf life is around 2 weeks to 3 months. For baby butt cream, I use beeswax, jojoba oil, aloe fresh herb or dryed water, vitamin E liquid not much, and then i will add chamomile water or chamomile homemade oil 1 drop or lavender homemade oil. But these rescipes are just suggestions, remember know what you are using. For a butt spray rinse vegetable glycerin, distilled water, a little white vinegar. If my child has been sick i will add a little sage water tot he recipe to disinfect after diarrehea. For laundry soapwart herbs in a sachet, white vinegar and baking soda liquid mix, sometimes for whites I will add citrus water or citrus sachet directly into the wash. Some citrus like lemon and grapefruit have a bleaching affect, even strawberries. I NEVER use oils in laundry recipes. NEVER use oils on hard wood floors, or furniture, it will strip the varnish right off and stain clothes, and furniture. Remember fragrance oils and essential oil are not the same. Homemade oils and essential oils that you buy are not the same. There are many different types of oils. If you are interested in learning more about using herbs let me know and i will help you individual, for it can be time consuming. There is a lot to know to be safe using herbs. Remember not all products over the counter that says is 'all natural' may not be all natural. Just because it says all natural does not mean that is it safe to use. Certain prescription drugs and herbs can counteract each other and cause a serious reaction. For herbs have the same properties as prescription drugs and OTC. Like asprin the white willow tree the bark is asprin. So remember know what you are taking. I will be glad to send some samples of my book to anyone who request one for FREE.

Beleive it or not finding the time to pamper your self is hard i have an infant and a toddler, so yep it is. But o nce it all calms down you might find the time to pamper yourself. If you use an electirc candle burner you can burn some lavender oil throughout the day, that will help, but not to much because then you can be sleepy. Chamomile oil is great too, not fragrance oils because those are flammable but true essential oil
fatima786 you can even add a little natural honey to the mix if you want.
If you are using pure olive oil or cold or hot processed? The pure olive oil, cold processed has been known to raise blood pressure in some people.

I have a recipe to help with pampering your hands; papaya seeds, vegetable glycerin, a little honey, vitamin E liquid a little, distilled water, a little powder sea salts, or epson salt, jojoba oil, avocada water, and maybe a little natural beeswax for healing.  after rinsing your hands then apply apricot, shea butter lotion. This works for me for dry chapped flacky hands and fingers, great for the feet but i would add it to a foot bath, with some fresh cucumbers diced up, and maybe for the feet some dryed rose petals.
I would only reccommend doing it no more 2 times a week.

What you guys just said made me think of something an esthetician taught us in massage therapy. This was meant to be given as a full body salt scrub (which feels absolutely amazing and leaves your skin super soft), but you can do it on a smaller scale on your legs, feet or hands just to get some smoothness and relief.

You use sea salts or epsom salts and just enough organic, cold-pressed oil (I think it should be safflower or some other exotic oil, not olive) to make an grit-like paste. You can also add some vitamin e oil or essential oils if you wish. Anyways, it feels heavenly but is very messy! We gave the massages on our tables with a plastic drop cloth on the floor. If you do it at home you will have to change your sheets after and probably vacuum too!

This is something that you can go to a spa and get done for a lot of money, but if you have a caring hubby, you can teach him to do it for free!

This is great! Thanks for sharing.
As my studies has shown jojoba oil is the thickest oil that you can use and it is safe for all skin types. Safflower is good, soybean oil, there are tons that you can use but almond oil should be avoided due to the severe reactions that have occurred, almonds are a nut. Also olive oil can put salt into your system very quickly if it the pure processed. Just a tip. Research the different carrier oils there are, some have specific properties then others. I trust jojoba oil over any of them, i use jojobal oil in cosmetics.

Here is a really good website

Finding the time to pamper yourself is hard, but yesterday I went to get a massage for the first time and LOVED it:) My son went along for the ride, but he slept the entire hour smile I definitely plan to go back again soon and hopefully when I do I plan it right around his naptime big grin ......

Mother of Faith, I would also love a copy of your herbal book if possible...thanks in advance!
