    3 Ways to Use Essential Oils in a Bath Safely

    by Andrea Butje on March 09, 2020

    Using essential oils in a bath is simple… but don’t overlook safety.

    Do you remember learning in school that oil and water don’t mix?

    This is true for essential oils and water, too.

    Bath water doesn’t make a good carrier…

    … because essential oils won’t dilute into it.

    This means your essential oils will just float on the surface of your bath… until they’re drawn to another oily substance—the lipids in your skin.

    Two Aromatherapy Bath Salt Recipes

    August 15, 2016

    An Aromatherapy bath can be a relaxing luxury. It can also be a deeply therapeutic experience.

    Welcome to the turning of the year!

    December 28, 2015

    Aromatherapy for inspiration and quiet times. I love to spend time reflecting on the year, and dreaming and planning for the future. It’s so important to give ourselves space for this—to take a few steps back and slow down, especially if we’re usually “going, going, going,” as so many people’s busy schedules ask them to do. So I want to share a few ways we can give ourselves this quiet time, open ourselves to peace and inspiration, and feel uplifted. Journaling and meditating are great practices. I like to schedule my journaling for the morning, so I’m sure to have this time for myself before the day’s events pick up. I wake up, light some incense, and settle in for fifteen minutes of reflective journaling. It's a great way to use Aromatherapy for inspiration. If you prefer to diffuse essential oils rather than light incense, here’s a diffuser blend that can help you get into the right state of mind: Dream and Plan Diffuser Blend 4 drops Clary Sage (Salvia sclerea) 3 drops Orange (Citrus sinensis) 3 drops Siberian Fir (Abies sibirica) […]
