I don’t sleep well. Since Luca passed my sleep patterns have been worse. Two nights ago I remembered I had these amazing Rocky Mountian Oils and ESY Tallow Body Butter. This combo makes the BEST deep sleep foot mask. It isn’t a cure-all and I didn’t sleep the entire night but I did get several hours of sleep that I wouldn’t have if I didn’t make this mask.
Here is how I made it.
Place 3tbs ESY Tallow Body Butter in a small bowl. Add 10 drops of Lavender Hungary, 5 drops patchouli and 5 drops vetiver. I would have added Eucalyptus but I ran out. Mix thoroughly and apply half to each foot 30 minutes before bed. Cover with a pair of socks. The tallow body butter occludes the oils to the skin and keeps them working longer. The socks give an even deeper level of occlusion; I tend to kick them off once I fall asleep. An added bonus of this mask is I woke up with the softest feet ever! The second night I saved a bit and put it on my chest for extra sleepy time power.
Why these oils?
Lavender Hungary Essential Oil’s sweet floral aroma can promote general mental and physical well-being. It is known for its wonderfully familiar aroma that will sweep you into a restful sleep.
Patchouli Essential Oil’s musky, herbal, and earthy aroma can balance your busy mind and support your digestive system. I like to meditate with this aroma diffused around me to uplift emotions.
Vetiver Essential Oil’s strong earthy and balsamic aroma can attune your mind and calm your nervous system. I like to use it when I feel overwhelmed and distracted.

This amazing body butter has featured on my Snapchat and Twitter several times. I use it for so many different things. Foot masks, hand masks, and a full body treatment are just a few ways I incorporate the ESY Tallow Body Butter in my nightly routines. I love that you can blend oils in it to focus on a specific problem. Whatever I blend in it, I wake up with super soft skin. The body butter is organic and gluten free! It will be in my travel bag to Canada next week for sure.
