SEASONAL BATH RECIPES

Oil added to the bath helps to soften and nourish dry, damaged or stressed skin. The warmth of the bath helps the oil to be absorbed into the skin and provides an excellent moisturizing effect.

You can add any plain, herbal-infused or scented carrier oil to your bath. The carrier oils offer emolliency and nourishment for your skin, while essential oils promote various subtle energetic effects. Oil may also be added to a bath for nervous conditions, since it is said to nourish and protect the nerves.

The following seasonal bath recipes will help enliven you in Spring and Summer and ward of colds and chills in Autumn and winter. Mix your oils with 1-2 oz. of plain carrier oil per bath and shake well. Add the blend to your bathwater prior to immersion. Some good choices are coconut, olive, sesame or jojoba oil.
