ESSENTIAL OIL - BATHING OVERVIEW

Few activities are as soothing and relaxing as taking a warm bath; soaking seems to ease not only sore muscles but emotional tension, as well. If you have a cold, bathing can offer the extra advantage of encouraging your body to sweat the toxins out. Adding essential oils can truly turn the experience into a healing bath. Baths give the oils a double route into the body - through scent diffused in the steam and through the skin. Warmed by bathwater, the skin is more permeable to the oils, which can then enter the bloodstream in a faster manner, releasing their therapeutic effects. A Thyme oil bath, for instance, works to strengthen the weakened resistance of your body; using Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils will loosen chest and nasal mucus to relieve congestion. Baths containing essential oils also provide an added benefit: The carrier oils you mix with the essential oils will moisturize, condition and soften your skin.

A healing bath is used to relieve insomnia, nervous tension, circulation problems, menstrual pain, coughs, colds and headaches.




RULES OF THE BATH

  • Bathe for no longer than 20 minutes; staying in the tub longer dries out the skin.
  • Never take a bath on a full stomach; it irritates the digestive system.
  • Use a bath pillow or rolled hand towel to support your head; it will allow you to relax more easily.
  • Essential oils are highly concentrated; always dilute them before using.
  • Add oils to the bathwater just before you get in, so they do not evaporate.

    THERAPEUTIC EFFECT

    Combining a bath with essential oils can both soothe the spirit and heal the body. The medicinal effects of your bath will vary according to the essential oils chosen; the essential oil of Tea Tree is antiseptic; rosemary is an expectorant; and Thyme essential oil strengthens the immune system. To maximize the effects of the bath, dry-brush your skin with a natural-fiber brush before bathing to open up pores and remove dead skin. Use about 4 drops of essential oil in a tub filled halfway, or 8 drops in a full bath.

    TEA TREE OIL FOR A WEAKENED IMMUNE SYSTEM

    Cold viruses attack us when our immunity is weakened. The essential oil of Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) is a great antiseptic for fighting viral and fungal infections, such as athlete's foot and ringworm. The oil also thins the mucus that is causing nasal stuffiness and coughs, making it easier to eliminate. Tea Tree oil helps to soothe inflammations, bites and burns, as well.

  • THYME OIL FOR INFECTIONS

    Essential oil of Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) can help fortify the immune system, stimulate the metabolism and warm and energize the whole body. The oil is a strong antibacterial agent helpful when used for respiratory infections, including not only colds but also flu and bronchitis. Thyme oil soothes the muscle aches that accompany infections.

    ESSENTIAL OIL HEALING BATH CAUTIONS

    Each essential oil has its own specific properties and appeal; see which is best for your state of mind and symptoms. Follow recipes closely, and never add more oil than is called for. Always dilute an essential oil with a Carrier Oil, plus a little alcohol and honey, so it can dissolve better into the bath water; you can add cream as an extra emulsifier, if you wish. After bathing, cover yourself well and rest for one hour.
