Bath Time and Essential Oils

Updated: Jun 21, 2020

Busy, don't have time - just going to jump in the shower?... Oh we get it, people use showers for speed, maybe to save water, but come on, we ask you, what's more magical than bath time? Taking time for yourself, to truly create your ultimate environment for relaxation. The mere thought of a bath often conjures up visions of pleasure and calm, plus there's nothing quite like it for wellness and good health. Soaking in warm water, perhaps with candlelight and soothing music creates a tranquil setting to unwind after a long day, add to that the benefits and aroma of essential oils, and you will be well on your way to renew mind, body and spirit

Essential oil baths are mostly about mood, so finding the right formula for your tub is as easy as deciding the vibe you're going for.

Tips and Tricks

Adding essential oils directly to the bath can sometimes cause skin irritation, and may not incorporate well into the water (due to that thing about oil and water not quite mixing!). Instead, add your chosen essential bath oil to bath salts, such as Dead Sea salt or Himalayan salt.

Bath Time Ideas

Making bath salts is incredibly easy!  Combine the following ingredients, trying to somewhat evenly distribute the essential oil.  Once mixed well, store the bath salts in a glass container, maybe a mason jar.... Hey, it makes a great gift idea as well.

  • 1 cup epsom salt

  • ¼ cup sea salt

  • ¼ cup baking soda

  • 8-10 drops of essential oil (see below for ideas)
