A relaxing bath is the best way to unwind after a hectic day, but what’s even better is enhancing the experience with essential oils hand picked for your mood and needs.
Essential oils are concentrated plant essences that have the power to influence our body and mind. They are a complex mix of highly potent volatile substances, some acting as muscle relaxants or pain relievers while others may be stimulants or mood enhancers. You will find every single essential oil having manifold effects and several oils having similar or complementary properties. That’s because each of them has some active ingredients unique to them, as well as several others that are common to many other oils.
When used in diffusers or candles, essential oils permeate the air and enter our system mainly through the olfactory channel. While soaking in a bath infused with them, the skin becomes another channel to absorb their goodness, making them even more effective. You can add some mineral salts for detox effect and appropriate lighting and background music to create the right atmosphere.
Make the best of the thirty or forty minutes you dedicate to yourself, enjoying the benefits these essential oil bath recipes have to offer.
