Are you working hard? Or maybe hardly working? Either way, the end of the day is the perfect time to cast away your recessionary blues with an “anti-doom and gloom” bath. Light some candles and grab some essential oils. Mix up a soothing combination to calm your frayed nerves or kick it up with a stimulating combo to rev you up for an evening out on the town.
My Favorite Essential Oil Bath Recipes
Here are five of my own favorite essential oil bath recipes. I add 4 drops of each oil in 1/4 cup of olive oil.
Soothing Frayed Nerves: Lavender, chamomile, sage, and cypress
Invigorating and Refreshing: Eucalyptus, bergamot, and grapefruit
Fortifying Body and Spirit: Marjoram, thyme, rosemary, and sage
Meditative: Sandalwood, frankincense, and cedarwood
Cleansing: Bay, eucalyptus, ginger, lemon
The first four recipes work well in all temperatures of bath water, from cold to hot. The last recipe for cleansing can work very well in a cool or cold bath, especially in the summer. Enjoy!
