Using Aromatherapy Bath Recipes

Tips for getting the most out of your homemade bath products

When using aromatherapy bath recipes, timing is everything.

These handy tips on how to make the most of your homemade bath products will help you wring every last drop of benefit from your bath.

For a perfect essential oil bath, do this:

Close windows and doors to keep the aromas in (lock them for privacy!) Get your candles, your music, your wine or tea and your book (if you need one) all ready.

Fill the tub with warm to hot water. When the bath is full and you're ready to hop in, pour in your homemade bath salts or aromatherapy bath oil.

Swirl the water around to disperse the salt or oil.

For a really stupendous aromatherapy bath, use both scented bath salts AND oils. Bath salts are detoxifying and help to deeply relax your muscles, while bath oils nourish and soften your skin. Double the bang for your buck!

Slide immediately into the water, because essential oils evaporate quickly.

Allow yourself to stop thinking, stop worrying, stop everything. Just lie there and breathe.

Relax in the tub for 20 or 30 minutes. I guarantee you'll be a new calmer, happier person... at least for a while!

And then, as an added bonus, use this quick trick for super smooth skin...

Secret Weapon for Stunningly Smooth Skin

Here's a great secret for amazingly soft, smooth skin.

Step 1

In the shower, scrub your skin with a loofah or scrubby bath puff thing (or use a body scrub recipe´╗┐ - more fun and more nourishing for your skin!)

Step 2

When you're all done, step out of the shower and wrap your hair in a towel but DON'T DRY OFF. Before you dry off, rub body oil into your wet skin. (By the time you're done, your skin will have absorbed the oil, so your towel won't get all oily.)

That's it! Simple, quick and amazingly effective! You can even tailor your body oil recipes to your skin type.
