Try medium pressure, medium strokes, minimize deep tissue strokes.
Apply a small amount on external area so as to get a gentle fragrance of oils to help during stressful times.
Can also be applied to the feet just before bed to prepare for a calmer sleep.
Can be used as a body oil when skin is dry, or add a few drops into the bath prior to soaking.
