Imagine yourself coming home from work, feeling tired, stressed out. You’ll need nothing less than a rejuvenating moment for yourself. A pamper-me session with the right essential oil to calm and relax you will be all you need!
Bathing with an essential oil is a special rejuvenating and therapeutic treatment for both your body and your mind. It will help you to sleep well, de-stress, relax and detox. Depending on which essential oil you use, some can even help you reduce few body inches.
It is very easy to have a bath treatment at home. You don’t need to go to the spa to get such a “pampering myself moment”. Buying out an hour and a half time for a whole preparation and treatment, which includes relaxation time will be great!
To have a rejuvenating aromatic bath, make sure to run the hot water for a while before you add the essential oil. Shut the door and window not to allow the fumes to escape. Using 4-6 drops of your favorite essential oil for your bath, use your hands to disperse the oil in the water. Never have a bath after taking a heavy meal, which can disrupt your digestive system and make you feel dizzy.
Moreover, bubble baths may contain some chemicals and some other preservatives so never go for it. This may interfere with the essential oil and might end up causing some allergic reactions, which you may not like that. Or if you can’t go without bubble bath, why don’t you go for a natural or organic bath soap?
After your therapeutic bath, relax for at least 10 minutes. Lie on your sofa bed with dress on. Dip a cotton ball in rose or flower water, cover your eyes with it and relax. Then follow up with your fave body oil.
