A quick way to experience the healing benefits of botanicals is in the shower. Plug your bathtub and add a cup of Epsom salt and 5-10 drops of an organic essential oil like Lavender, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, etc. As you shower, the essential oil evaporates and creates a spa vibe atmosphere. This is an easy way to incorporate aromatherapy into everyday living. Essential oils don’t just smell nice, they are potent and powerful. Check out some books on their benefits like Renegade Beauty by Nadine Artemis or Advanced Aromatherapy by Kurt Schnaubelt. Besides putting a few drops into the shower you may use a diffuser, salt pipe, or create beauty products by mixing essential oils with carrier oils like Jojoba or Tamanu.
