Something worth soaking in... A soothing bath!
Have a long day?
Do you need a relaxing bath and maybe a glass of wine?
I have the perfect bath to go with that glass of white (Or red if you prefer)!!!
Simply run your bath as usual
(I usually have some sorta mild (not heavy scent) bubble bath I add),
Grab some Chamomile tea bags,
And a tub pillow for your neck...
Either break open the tea bags and sprinkle around or leave them whole and drop in.
(I use at least 2.)
Take a couple drops of lavender oil and drip them in the water.
(5-10, make sure you don't have any allergies first!)
Candles add that extra soothing atmosphere needed after a trying day,
That or one of those cool nightlights that change colors slowly.
Very quickly you'll notice your body is relaxing and ready to unwind...
Soak for a minimum of 30 min but no longer than 1 hour.
Slather on your favorite lotion and hit your sheets and crash for the night!!
When my husband was down with the flu at the start of this year he hadn't been sleeping well so I ran him one of these baths... I had to help him walk down the stairs he was so relaxed and ready for sleep!!
Did you know Lavender oil just might help with firming(Still looking in on that study...)?
Helps calm anxiety
(You can buy those little bags for crafts at Hobby Lobby and add one drop of lavender and one of geranium in one and take a few breaths when the feeling starts to arise. This should help you center yourself and focus.
Keep it on your person or in your purse.),
Hay fever(one drop of that and then one drop of lemon oil and chamomile on a tissue then inhale),
As always read the directions and use essential oils with caution as they are VERY strong.
Enjoy this relaxing bath and let your body soak in the pleasure!!
