It is a fact that water and oil do not mix. Fortunately, it is still possible to prepare a relaxing bath that makes use of essential oils. You will be able to reap all the wonderful benefits of having an aromatherapy bath at home. We will be featuring various types of baths you might choose to take. For example, there is Epsom salt. The ingredient can be used to gently detox your body. This is beneficial if you are ill and want to get rid of toxins in your system. Other options include soothing irritated or dry skin, adding extra moisture to your skin, and many more.

Note: Avoid direct skin contact with essential oils. It is always a good idea to dilute them in an appropriate carrier oil.

What Do You Want Your Aromatherapy Bath to Do?

  • Moisturize your body

You can use jojoba carrier oil with most recipes. The oil helps to boost your skin’s appearance, allowing you to achieve and enjoy soft, silky skin. Consider using a glass dropper to make a stock blend. Three to four droppers for a bath will do the trick. You can also make two ounces at a time and add in between nine and 12 drops of total essential oils.

  • Full-body pampering

Want to treat red, irritated, or dry skin? You can create a soothing bath that comprises half-cup full fat cream or milk with any of the recipes mentioned below. Just make sure that they are properly diluted recipe. This combo makes one bath. Additionally, you will want to add this to your bath under running water!

  • Relaxation

Magnesium flakes, Epsom salt, and Himalayan salt. Choose any combination of these salts, measure out two cups, and place the contents in a medium-sized glass bowl. Add your favorite essential oils and then mix and stir well to combine. If you are adding a stock blend, you should use about six drops per half cup bath salts.
