Okay, you probably know how to take a bath . . . but do you know how to take a really good bath?
Roman Chamomile has some advice for you about how to take a bath.
It thinks you could make your baths even more relaxing by adding some homemade Aromatherapy bath salt to your tub.
Roman Chamomile is an expert when it comes to knowing how to take a bath. It can take a typical evening soak from “nice” to “spa-tastic!” That’s because Roman Chamomile is good at releasing muscle tension, calming spasms, and relaxing the nerves—it soothes your body, mind, and heart!
For this bath salt, Roman Chamomile chose to pair up with its friend Bergamot Mint. These two essential oils have a lot in common—their aromas are a little fruity and flowery. Roman Chamomile has the scent of warm apples in the sun, and Bergamot Mint combines the citrusy scent of Bergamot with a sweet, floral, minty aspect that’s very unique.
Chamomile Bergamot Mint Bath Salt
- 4 oz (112 g) pink Himalayan salt
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
- 1 drop Roman Chamomile essential oil (Chamaemelum nobile)
- 4 drops Bergamot Mint essential oil (Mentha citrata)
Make this blend in a 4 oz (120 ml) jar.
Add the salt to the jar.
Add the essential oils to the jojoba, then stir gently into the salt with a glass stirring rod or the handle of a stainless steel spoon to distribute evenly through the salt.
Use half of the blend in your bath. (This recipe makes enough for two baths.)
I like using pink Himalayan salt because I love the color. But you can use any kind of natural salt you like. Dead Sea salt or Epsom salt will work great!
Try this bath salt after you’ve had a big meal. Roman Chamomile and Bergamot Mint are two essential oils that can also help support digestion.
Note: Carrier oils can make the bathtub slippery. Another option is to use Castile soap to disperse the essential oils in the bath water.
If you prefer to use Castile soap, simply add the essential oils to 1 tablespoon of Castile soap. Castile soap can sometimes cause the salt to harden, so we recommend adding the salt directly to the bath water.
Here are Roman Chamomile’s tips for how to take a bath that’s amazing:
- Fill the tub with warm water. Add the bath salt while the tub is still filling.
- Eat some fruit or chocolate while you’re soaking in the tub!
- Listen to your favorite relaxing music.
When you get out of the tub, use your favorite all-natural lotion and then tuck yourself into bed for a dreamy night’s sleep.
And a final tip from Roman Chamomile . . . releasing tension in a warm bath is great, but it’s even better to stay relaxed throughout the day. Don’t forget to breathe and find moments of peace while you’re getting things done.
