Things You'll Need
- Pure essential oils
- Jojoba Oil
- Bottle with cap
Create an Aromatherapy Furniture Polish
Use Jojoba oil, available on-line and in health food stores. This rich oil gives wood a beautiful shine. Fill he bottle with 1 fluid ounce (30ml) of oil.
Use 100% pure essential oils-only these offer aromatherapy benefits. The label will state "100% pure." You can find them at health food stores and online. Don’t use synthetic oils-they do not have the same benefits.
Add 10 drops of an essential oil whose fragrance you enjoy to the Jojoba oil. Some suggestions include floral fragrances such Ylang-Ylang, Lavender, and Lemongrass, as well as such forest fragrances as Spruce, Pine, and Cedarwood.
Cap the bottle and shake well to blend the oils.
Polish the piece of furniture gently with a soft cloth and 1/2 a teaspoon of oil. Add oil to your cloth as needed.
