Posted below is a wonderful DIY Sleep Massage Oil Recipe of hers, using HobaCare Jojoba Oil as a base for this aromatherapy blend. We hope you enjoy the experience of concocting the recipe and the slumber to follow. We think this recipe would be a perfect fit for a before-bed self massage session or Abhyanga.
