Adding essential oils to the bath is simple and there are a few different options depending on the type of bath you want to take. The 3 top methods for using essential oils in the bath are:
1. Mixed with a Carrier Oil
You don’t have to take any special sort of bath in order to make use of your essential oils. A single oil, or a favorite oil blend, may be added to your bath premixed with your favorite carrier oil in a ratio of 1-2 drops of essential oil to every 1 tablespoon of carrier oil. Simply prepare the mixture while drawing your bath and drop it into the bath a few minutes before you get in.
2. Bubble Bath
You can also add 1-2 drops of essential oil to every tablespoon of natural scent-free shower gel to create your own luxurious aromatherapy bubble bath. The gel acts as a protective carrier oil and is sometimes preferred as it does not leave your bathtub feeling slippery or oily after your bath has drained
3. Bath Salt
You can make our own aromatherapy bath salts using essential oils, jojoba oil, and around 1 to 2 ounces of bath salt. Simply combine 5 drops of essential oils to 2 teaspoons of jojoba oil, and mix the combination into 1 to 2 ounces of bath salt.
