Using Aromatherapy in Your Bathing Routine

Soaps, shower gels and bubble baths can improve you skin and hair as well as simply make your body smell nice.

Our bathroom routines play a big part in our well-being. After a hard day at work, there's nothing better than sinking into a warm bath and soaking away the day's stresses. A brisk morning shower is also an essential ritual, refreshing us for the day ahead. The products we use can make all the difference.

You are probably using aromatherapy in the bathroom already. Many shop-bought products such as bubble baths and shampoos use natural ingredients and contain several essential oils.

Making up your own aromatherapy products can be more economical and just as effective, however. The main benefit of making your own products is that with a little know-how you can tailor them to suit your individual needs, whether you want to soothe a bad case of eczema or cultivate a glowing complexion.

Use these combinations of oils in the treatments described below to achieve healthy and glowing skin.

EASY ACNE TREATMENT:

BLENDS FOR OILY SKIN:

BLENDS FOR DRY SKIN:

Here are some other ideas of how you can use your chosen essential oils in your bathing routine.

Add a few drops of essential oil to your usual skin care products, or dab problem areas with our ready-diluted massage oils. Remember that even oil complexions still need moisture. If deprived, they simply over-compensate and produce more oil.

IN YOUR BATHWATER:

IN YOUR SHOWER:

Eucalyptus and lavender oils both have a cooling effect. Add a few drops to lukewarm bathwater to soothe a case of sunburn.

HAIR REMEDIES:

UNWIND WITH SCENTED CANDLES:

Candles are much more relaxing than electric light when you're bathing. Scented with essential oils they can also be therapeutic, especially when combined with the effects of a relaxing aromatherapy bath oil.

Aromatherapy candles are widely available in the shops. If you wish to make your own however, simply light a chunky candle and, once a small poll or wax has melted at the top of the candle, blow it out and add a few drops of your chosen oil. The next time you relight the candle, the aroma will be released as the wax melts.

Choose the following aromatherapy candle to suit your moods:
