Side note: This aromatherapy bath recipe is one of the best bath products you can make when you're using aromatherapy for depression. (It's also good for PMS and menopause.)
10 drops Bergamot essential oil
10 drops Sweet Orange essential oil
5 drops Geranium essential oil
4fl oz (125ml) carrier oil of your choice, such as jojoba or grapeseed oil
Combine all the ingredients in a dark glass or PET plastic bottle. Store it in a cool, dark place (not your bathroom - it's too warm and humid.)
To use your aromatherapy bath oil, pour about a tablespoon into the bath after you've finished running the water. Click here for tips on how to take a perfect aromatherapy bath.
Handy Hint: This aromatherapy bath oil is excellent for alleviating acne. To boost its acne-fighting powers, use grapeseed oil as the carrier oil (it's astringent - helps tighten pores and reduce oil production.) Click here to learn more about using aromatherapy for acne.
I started using essential oils from doTerra after comparing them to the other brands in my stash.
I found myself using fewer drops per recipe and actually getting better results. Plus, I've never had a bad reaction, which sometimes happens with other brands.
doTerra's oils cost more than other brands, and that's as it should be. It's like buying a BMW vs. a Kia - the more expensive car is the better quality vehicle.
If you can afford them, I recommend giving doTerra's oils a try and comparing them for yourself.
You can buy doTerra's oils at retail prices by clicking the Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get a store-wide 25% discount. Message me if you want more details on the wholesale thing - why spend more than you have to, right?
I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs if you're on a tight budget. Their oils are more affordable and the quality is good. Click the links for...
Or... If you love having tons of options to choose from, browse through Amazon and see what looks good to you. Just remember that inexpensive oils are likely to be lower in quality - how else do they get the cost so low?
When your nerves are stretched to the limit, fill the tub, lock the door and give yourself a 'time out' with this soothing aromatherapy bath recipe.
This cool, minty eucalyptus aromatherapy bath oil blend will help decongest your stuffy nose, energize your sorry bones, boosts energy and mental clarity. And it helps kill germs!
