Tub Talk: Essential Oils

Tub Talk: Essential Oils

May 14, 2020

 While there are many benefits of using essential oils, adding them to your bath-time routine promotes physical and mental relaxation (ultra timely!) while also boasting skin-healing properties. Our brand of choice is NOW Foods, which produces a line of pure, organic essential oils, blends and diffusers for aromatherapy.

Stress Less, Glow More Recipe:
– 5 drops Lavender Oil
– 4 drops Chamomile Oil
– 3 drops Frankincense Oil

Each oil has been specifically selected for this recipe for its unique healing properties. Lavender Oil is an excellent anti-inflammatory, useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression and restlessness. Bonus: it smells amazing! Chamomile calms and soothes the skin, boosting the appearance of healthy looking skin while reducing redness and irritation; Chamomile also provides relief for a dry scalp. Frankinsense oil helps to protect skin cells, while helping reduce blemishes, the appearance of large pores/wrinkes; it naturally lifts/tightens the skin.

Tip: don’t forget your carrier oil! Carrier oils dilute essential oils and allow for easy skin absorption. Add one tablespoon of coconut oil, avocado oil, or jojoba oil, et voila!

Take it to the next level: Elevate bath-time with some suds, with the help of Dr. Bronner’s Unscented Liquid Soap! Add this to the mix for the all-natural bubble bath of your dreams! (Link the highlighted text and open the link in a new tab to this page:
