This is a daily ritual for many folks, for others it's something they can only enjoy occasionally.
In either case, taking a bath can help you relax, and yet although calming can make you feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
To have a wonderful aromatherapy bath fill the tub with warm water first, then add 5-10 drops of essential oil or a synergy blend.
Close the bathroom door and leave for 5-10 minutes. Then upon your return enter the tub and soak for a minimum of 10 minutes. This time is needed to receive the benefits of the essential oils.
But then again, you shouldn't be in a hurry now, it's your time to enjoy!
Add more hot water as needed.
To enhance your experience play some soothing music and light a few candles.
Some folks like to add about 1 teaspoon of Sweet Almond, or Apricot or Grapeseed oil to the tub. These oils can soften the skin while bathing. Please do be careful when leaving the tub as adding oils can make the tub slippery.
Others like to add bath salts, this too is very soothing. Epsom Salt mixed with Dead Sea salt added to the tub while filling. Usually for a half filled tub 1/2 cup of salts is plenty. Adjust though for your own personal needs.
If you are enjoying your bath earlier in the day or evening, don't forget to turn off the telephones, televisions, lock the house doors, you don't want to be interrupted!
Taking baths regularly with essential oils can help with stress, muscle aches and pains, and help to alleviate tension and anxiety.
Helpful hints to enjoy your bath: Make a cup of tea or hot cocoa to enjoy while soaking. Turn on the music, turn off the lights (only if you have a few candles lit).
Don't forget to arrange your after bath towel, or a soft and comfy bath robe. Apply lotion or creams if you did not use a carrier oil in the tub.
Again, Enjoy your bath!
