How to Create an Aromatherapy Bath

This is something that comes up a lot! We all know that oil and water don’t mix. So what is the proper way to create a relaxing bath with essential oils? Let’s take a closer look at how you can get the essential oils safely in your tub and reap all the wonderful benefits they have to offer!

Plant Therapy Aromatherapy Bath DIY

First let’s talk about the different types of bath you might choose to take. By using epsom salt, you can create a gentle detox effect for your body. This is useful during an illness or simply to help flush the system. Secondly, you might want to take a bath to soothe dry or irritated skin. Perhaps you have dry skin or a rash, using a skin soothing bath is a great choice. Finally, maybe you’re looking to add some extra moisture to your skin. By adding a small amount of carrier oil to your bath, you can achieve smooth, moisturized skin. *Update: Always dilute your essential oils in either a carrier oil or a liquid soap.
