Created by certified aromatherapist Jennifer Lane, the new guide is available to anybody who may be interested in creating homemade products using essential oils. It contains a wealth of information making it ideal for beginners.
Predominantly used in Aromatherapy, essential oils can help people to relax and de-stress. When used in bath water, they create a peaceful, sweet-smelling atmosphere, and they also have a series of skincare and other benefits.
According to the guide, bathing oil is simple and quick to make. 20 – 24 drops of essential oils are mixed with 2 ounces of base oil, such as coconut or jojoba. Approximately one tablespoon of the mixture should then be added to the bath.
Essential oils are not water soluble, so adding drops straight into the water will have no effect as they will just float to the top of the water. The base oil dilutes the essential oils stopping this from happening. It also prevents skin irritation and evaporation.
In addition, using a carrier oil provides moisturization to the skin, making it soft and smooth, and helps soothe any itchy or dry areas.
There are other benefits to using essential oils in the bath. For example, the mixture acts as a good cleanser. It can also help diminish aches and pains or menstrual cramps, by easing muscles and joints and promoting circulation.
According to the guide, using essential oils in the bath can also aid those with respiratory problems and help reduce stress levels. It calms the mind and body leaving it relaxed or refreshed.
The guide promotes the importance of using essential oils safely and advises readers to follow the recipes for optimal results. The text also informs readers of which essential oils to avoid in the bath – for example, those considered skin irritants or hot oils.
The recipes and guides can all be found on the website. Loving Essential Oils are also available on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.
