Aromatherapy, in the form of essential oils, is awesome and will really add to your bath experience.
Be careful when adding Essential Oils! Too much can irritate your skin and cause discomfort and then your bath won’t be much fun at all.
Put a few drops in your hand and then swish your hand in the water to disperse. When you get in the tub you can add a few more drops if desired, but don’t just shake the container over the water – you can’t tell how much is coming out – shake a drop or two into your palm and then add to the water.
Wait a few minutes to see how you feel and if you can smell the oil (“aroma”therapy – get it?). Don’t be impatient! Relax!
And, for gawds sake, DON’T leave an uncapped essential oil on the side of the tub! See what transpired when I did that – click here for the story – my Eucalyptus Tub Tale!
Lavender and Eucalyptus Oils are two of my favorite essential oils. Must-have staples for any Bath Tub Diva.
