Looking to create the perfect ambience in your bathing space? You need to aromatherapy it up a bit! Whether it’s in the morning to start off my day with a boost of energy or in the evening to relax and unwind, I love using aromatherapy. Read on to learn about my favorite ways to use aromatherapy in the bath or shower…
What is aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is a therapy that uses essential oils and other natural products for wellness of the body and mind.
Aromatherapy baths and showers
When I take an aromatherapy bath I like to combine epsom salts and essential oils. A lot of people hear the word “bath” and think that baths are taken at night as a way to relax. However, I like taking baths at any time of the day. If I take a bath in the morning or in the middle of the day, I like using Dr. Teals Detoxify and Energize Epsom Salt. Just add about 2 cups of the salts under running water and soak in the bath for 20 minutes. (This salt blend smells amazing!)
At night, when I want to relax and get my body ready for a good sleep, I use Dr. Teals Soothe and Sleep Lavender Epsom Salt.
My favorite essential oils for energy are peppermint and grapefruit. For relaxation? Lavender and eucalyptus. A drop or two of these oils can be added to a diffuser or directly into bath water. Keep in mind, though, if you add too much peppermint to bathwater, it can create a cooling sensation, which may be great if you’re soaking your feet for a pedi!
Extra tip: Not a bath person? Add some drops of your favorite essential oil to your shower. When your bathroom steams up it will smell great and you’ll feel the affects mentally and physically.
