When I lived in Scotland, my flat was just around the corner from the Stockbridge branch of the Napier Herbal Dispensary. Napier sold various remedies and many of them smelled wonderful and were very pleasant to use - even if they didn't entirely cure my insomnia or acne.
At some point, I found a book of aromatherapy recipes by Valerie Ann Worwood called The Fragrant Mind: Aromatherapy for Personality, Mind, Mood, and Emotion. The book includes recipes developed to deal with anything ranging from insomnia to schizophrenia.
I know. And I bought it for precisely that reason. It's a little bit funny. But then again, why not? If you're suffering from lack of confidence, how nice to have something like the "low self-esteem blend" to beautifully scent your environment and make you feel better. Here is a mix I thought almost all of you would enjoy.
Aromatherapy Blend for Light, Lethargic Depression.
5 drops grapefruit oil
10 drops rosemary oil
15 drops eucalyptus citriodra
Put all drops into a clean, dark brown glass bottle. Roll (do not shake) the bottle between your hands and gently turn upside down and back again. To use: Place 2-3 drops in a small bowl of hot water and diffuse into a room. You may also put 1-2 drops on a tissue and inhale or add a few drops to a small amount of grapeseed oil for massage.
