Eucalyptus oil reminds us of a day spa, and the scent the eucalyptus oil gives these bath salts will make you actually want to stop what you are doing and take a bath.
The bath, as compared to a shower, is often passed over. We think it is too much of a fuss, that it takes too much hot water, that it uses too much water, when so much of the country is experiencing drought. However, the bath has some amazing therapeutic effects not only on the body, but on the body, boss – the mind.
After a long, stressful day of work, school, raising little ones, your body is done for. A shower is not what the body and mind crave. For starters, you are standing. More so, you are shampooing and soaping and there is water hitting your face, and none of that is relaxing.
Adding essential oils to a bath is some simple science. First, the oils become warmed and envelop you in a plume of aromatherapy goodness. Next, you are laying down. And better yet, the hot water is soaking all of your muscles and skin at the same time. A shower is only helpful where the water is hitting you. The rest of your body is just out in the air.
The ancient Romans knew the benefit of a bath, right? They built numerous bath houses and spent hours on end in there relaxing, and not running around like crazy people. Our modern activities would likely be seen as crazy by the ancients!
So, besides the eucalyptus oil, the hot water, the steam, and the laying down, there’s just one more thing that will make a bath simply amazing. That’s bath salts. This recipe calls for both dead sea salts, and pink himalayan salts. You may have seen himalayan pink salts made into a lamp at your natural food store, or massage place. Bath salts can improve circulation, and reduce muscle fatigue and soreness. Salts also release and open your skin’s pores, helping them maintain their natural health.
