If you're looking to relieve stress or some joint pain, adding a few drops of essential oils into your bath can help. Not only are there physical and psychological benefits but adding a bit of oil to your bath can also help hydrate your skin and improve your skin health.
Before you start prepping for your bath remember that not all essential oils are created equal, so rather using a whole bunch make sure to use the ones that won't irritate your skin. Lavender, chamomile and rose are usually safe bets.
Also make sure to dilute your essential oils in a carrier oil (jojoba, coconut, olive and sunflower oil can work)
Here's an easy DIY recipe you can try at home.
Things You'll Need
- 4 drops of lavender oil
- 3 drops of chamomile oil
- 1 tablespoon of carrier oil
1. Fill your bath with hot water
2. Turn off faucet before adding essential oils for an aromatic effect.
3. Enjoy your aromatic soak
4. Be careful when you get out as the oils can cause the bath to become slippery.
