The Art of Bathing!

 

Use a choice of salts and (or) essential oils.

Medicinal plants can play an important role in this process. You can choose from a variety of leaves and flowers to customize your experience based on your specific needs and preferences. Some classic herbs to use as a bath tea, salt soak, or for aromatherapy include lavender, rose, chamomile, calendula, peppermint, rosemary, geranium, grapefruit, orange, fir, cleavers, oat tops, ginger, jasmine, and ylang ylang. Some other fun ingredients to have on hand in your home spa include coarse sea salt, Epsom salt, Himalayan pink salt, French green clay, and bath oils. After a good soak, it is also lovely to spritz your skin and the air around you with cooling Rose, Peppermint, Lime, Ylang Ylang or Blood Orange Hydrosol. With just a few of these supplies conveniently stocked by your tub, you’ll be ready to pamper yourself whenever the inspiration flows.
