Methods For Applying Aromatherapy Products
Skin Enhancement in the Jacuzzi
In your hot tub or jacuzzi, add a few drops of essential oils every 30 minutes or so. The warmth of the water and
the bubbling effect of the jacuzzi will invigorate and relax at the same time. Be sure and check the manufacturer’s
recommendations because some oils can damage plastic plumbing.
Aromatherapy After Your Shower
Use an aromatherapy oil that is beneficial when contacting the skin. Apply a couple drops to a damp wash cloth and
rub the aromatherapy essential oil of choice into your skin. Then let it air dry before dressing. Citrus essential
oils work well after a shower and are very refreshing. For evening you might try something with a floral scent.
Combine Aromatherapy oils with Epsom Salts in your bath. This is excellent for those sore and aching muscles. You
can also create a skin scrub. Use Sea Salt, Baking Soda, and about 6 to 10 drops of an oil blend of choice.
Use as a salt rub before the bath. Also, by adding some of your favorite
carrier oil to the salt it will give the skin a glow and leave your skin feeling soft and silky. When you add the
oil directly in your tub, it does make it a bit more difficult to clean, however there are non toxic, natural
citrus cleansers that work to clean tubs and showers rather than toxic powdered cleaners.
Benefits of Essential Oils
For deriving the full benefits of essential oils, it is important to follow proper methods of application as recommended
by aromatherapists. Normally, the method of application depends on the main objective of the aromatherapy session.
For example, if the objective is to relieve the symptoms of sinus or bronchial problems, the essential oils are mixed
in hot water to create potent steam vapors, which are then inhaled. On the other hand, if the objective is to rejuvenate
the skin, the essential oils are mixed with carrier oils and applied on the skin with bare hands. The oil is gently
messaged all over the body until it is completely absorbed by the skin. These oils can also be added in home facials
for reducing acne and black spots.
The best thing about alternative medicinal techniques such as aromatherapy is they do not have any negative side
effects when used as recommended. You can use aromatherapy oils as an alternative healing method anytime and anywhere
without worrying about the negative effects.
