Are you looking to elevate your bath time experience with aromatherapy but don't know where to begin? With so many different oils and scented bath bombs on the market, it can be a bit difficult to choose among them. Though there are plenty of great essential oils and scents out there, not many can stand up to the versatility of lavender essential oil.
What Is Lavender Essential Oil?
As you've probably guessed, it is a substance that has been extracted from a flowery plant called lavender. It has been used throughout history and still remains a popular scent and oil in candles, incense, bubble baths, and many other products.
What Are Its Benefits?
The scent of lavender is known for its wonderful calming effect on the mind and body. It is an excellent scent for your bath, meditation, and other relaxing hobbies because it helps ease your mind more quickly. Unlike other scents, lavender is gentle to your senses and not overwhelming to those with sensitive noses. This is why it is ideal for first-time users who aren't used to aromatherapy practices.
Thanks to its soothing properties, lavender is also used as a sleep aid. Those who make bath soaps, bubble baths, and bath bombs will often use lavender in their "sleepy time" products. It has been helpful to those with all kinds of sleep problems. It has even been shown to improve one's mental well-being. However, it should be noted that lavender essential oil should not replace any prescription medication you need.
If you don't have time for a bath or simply want the calm feeling to last longer, you can rub about 2 to 3 drops of lavender essential oil directly onto your temples, wrists, feet, or other body parts. This makes it a good replacement for perfumes that typically contain a lot of unsafe ingredients. You can also work lavender oil into your skin before bed in order to have better quality of sleep.
Why Use Lavender Essential Oil In Bath?
Baths aren't just for cleaning yourself. They are a chance to breathe and unwind after a long hard day as well as get several moments to yourself. However, relaxing isn't always easy. Often in moments of peace, you will still find yourself filled with worry and stress. That is where the lavender essential oil comes into play.
Whether you directly mix the oil into your bathwater or light a lavender-scented candle, its scent will instantly put you at ease. That is exactly the kind of help you need to allow yourself some well-deserved peace.
Another option is to use an Epsom salt blend such as our Calm Bath Soak or our Deep Relaxation Bath Soak. Either has lavender essential oil for aromatherapy purposes. Check out our online shop to discover what other essential oils you can use for bath time.
