A common practice for recreational bathers is to fill a tub with hot water, add essential oils and ease themselves into aromatherapy bliss. Did you know that this is not safe?
Essential oils and water do not mix
The essential oils will adhere directly to your skin
To use essential oils in your bath, add essential oils to a carrier oil before placing it in your bath water to ensure a satisfying and safe bath experience. Use caution when entering of leaving the tub as the surface may be slippery.
Mixing essential oils with Epsom or any other type of salts, without a carrier oil is not a safe practice either – because essential oils do not disburse in the salt – they merely adhere and when added to hot water the essential oil is released directly to your skin.
