Bathing is the most beautiful and nurturing method of use in the practice of aromatherapy and perfect for a relaxing or romantic evening.

Set the perfect scene: candles, champagne, rose petals and your In Essence Essential Oil blend such as:

  1. Ylang Ylang, Rose Otto and Geranium
  2. Ylang Ylang, Jasmine and Bergamot

As essential oils are not water soluble, take care when preparing your bath. Make sure they are well dispensed. In Essence recommends 3 drops in total of chosen oils to one teaspoon of massage base oil. Either add to bath water or massage onto body before sinking into the bath. Avoid using herbaceous essential oils such as Lemongrass in the bath, they are very stimulating and may irritate the skin. Some Citrus essential oils such as Orange will also irritate the skin.
