One of my favorite sayings is “Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.” As a single mom of a teenager, managing my own business with an active social and volunteer life, if it ain’t easy, I don’t do it! Here is my quick and easy way to slip into a relaxing bath scented with my favorite Young Living Essential Oils…..
First of all, you don’t want to just pour the essential oil into the bath while the water is running. Why? Because the essential oil will just sit on the top of the water and eventually stick to one part of your body or to the side of the tub. By adding it to a handful of Epsom salts, you will be dispersing the essential oil throughout the water. Here’s what I do: (are you ready? Pay attention because you just might miss it!) With my container of Epsom salt and opened bottle of essential oil on the side of the tub, I allow the hot water to begin to fill the bath. I scoop up a handful of Epsom salts and add 5-10 drops of Young Living Essential Oil. I then mix the essential oil into the Epsom salts by rubbing the blend together with my fingers as it slowly falls into the running water, rinsing my hand at the end. That’s it! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. One of the reasons why I love this method, apart from its ease, is that I can use a different essential oil each time I take a bath. Very economical! No need to buy a ton of different scented bath products. I also feel safe in the knowledge that I am not using personal care products that contain harmful and toxic chemicals.
A peek at what essential oils I use:
- Inspiration–for automatic brain downloads and to encourage new ideas
- Humility–to check my ego
- Inner Child–to engage my childlike self
- ImmuPower–when I feel a cold coming on
- Joy–some good old healing-heart energy after a long day
- PanAway–after too much yoga or bike riding
- RC or Raven–chest or head congestion, creates a spa-like environment
- Sensation–you know
- Valor–to regain my balance
There you have it! Done! See, even this blog post was easy peasy…..
