- To use aromatically, diffuse 2-3 drops of each oil in periodic intervals throughout the day and night.
- To use topically, make yourself a roller bottle by adding 10 drops of each lavender, lemon and peppermint to a 10ml roller bottle and fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil. Apply to the bottom of your feet throughout the day.
