Using Essential Oils in the Bath

Just as scents in your home can have calming effects, added them to your bath can help you relax before bed or fire you up for that big meeting or for a night on the town. Use lavendar and vanilla to calm or relax, use citrus oils to invigorate and get the energy going. I have found a simple mixture to add your favorite essential oils to your bath with that also softens your skin! Combine 1 cup of olive oil and 1 cup liquid castile soap, which is soap made from vegetable oil. Pour into a sealed container that you can keep by your bath. Next decide if it is going to be your calming or invigorating bath and add 1/2 teaspoon of your choice of essential oil. Mix well and when you need it add about 2 tablespoons to each bath. I have actually made both a calming with lavendar and a separate lime/valencia mixture to get me going in the morning.
