If you have a favorite bath salt, body wash, and lotion, make sure you have them on hand. Choose a fragrance that feels good to you and puts you in that relaxed frame of mind. Essential oils are a great way to add fragrance and aromatherapy to your bath. Be mindful of your intention when you are deciding on what scents to incorporate into your bath. There may be times when you want to feel super energized after your bath. There might be other times when you want to feel calm and relaxed. Certain scents lend themselves to different mood shifts. Essential oils that help us achieve a state of relaxation include: chamomile, benzoin, bergamot, cedarwood, clary sage, frankincense, geranium, jasmine, lavender, neroli, patchouli, rose, sandalwood and ylang ylang. For a more energizing effect try: basil, clary sage, cypress, eucalyptus, hyssop, nutmeg, oregano, peppermint, pine and rosemary. Always be sure you have no allergies to the oils you choose and simply add 3-15 drops to your bath along with the salts. I like Epsom salt or Himalayan bath salts.
