An Oily Bath

Many people think that Young Living essential oils are something to bring out when you are sick - and they are.  However, they are so great to use every single day in many aspects of your life.  

One way to incorporate the use of essential oils into your WELLNESS routine is to take baths using epsom salts and Young Living Essential Oils.  Baths with oils and salts are perfect for relaxing at the end of a long day and promoting overall health.

Here's how you do it:

  1. In a small bowl, place a couple hand fulls of Epsom Salts.  You can buy epsom salt at your local drug store, or in bulk at stores like Costco.  
  2. On top of the salts, drop 5-10 drops of your favorite oils and stir.  
  3. While the water is running for your bath at the temperature you like, pour the salts in let the running water dissolve the salts in your bath.  
  4. Soak for 20 minutes or so, and make sure you hydrate with a glass of water or tea.

Here are some of my favorite oils to soak in:
  • Lavender
  • Peace and Calming
  • Purification
  • Rosemary and Lemon
  • Citrus Fresh
  • RC
  • Believe
  • Peppermint
Don't take this list as rule - experiment and try your favorite oil or blend in your bath!

Bath salts also make an awesome gift - quick and easy for a hostess, a thank you, your mom, the secretary at your work, etc.
