The Best Essential Oils to Use in your Whirlpool Bubble Bath
There’s nothing better than coming home after a long day at the office to a relaxing and revitalizing whirlpool bubble bath. Aromatherapy with the use of essential oils is a great way to take your relaxing bath to the next level. By carefully adding essential oils to your bath, you can experience a variety of benefits that will leave you refreshed and recharged. Below are 4 essential oils that we believe should always have in your home.
Used for medicinal and home care purposes for thousands of years, lavender is an extremely versatile essential oil. A few drops into your whirlpool bubble bath can not only help you sleep well, but alleviate sinus and respiratory issues and headaches when inhaled through the steam. Lavender can also be applied topically to relieve skin rashes, acne, insect bites, and minor burns. If you can only have just one essential oil in your home, make sure it’s lavender!
2. Tea Tree
On the same page as lavender, tea tree oil is one of the most useful essential oils to have on hand, even if you aren’t intending to always use it in your whirlpool bubble bath. Tea tree can be beneficial in treating nearly any common ailment and can be applied topically (or dripped into your bath water) to treat athlete’s foot, eczema, acne, cold sores, nail fungus, warts, insect bites, and so much more! Adding a few drops into unscented shampoo can help with dandruff, psoriasis, and even lice.
Peppermint essential oil can provide a calming and cooling effect when added to water for a foot or full body soak. Breathing in peppermint-infused steam can also help clear congestion and soothe coughing fits. Drop a little into your whirlpool bubble bath to open up your senses and wake up your tired body to feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to take on the day!
Like tea tree, chamomile essential oil can help alleviate a variety of skin ailments including boils, dry skin, eczema/dermatitis, acne, bee stings, cuts, and bruises. When used in your whirlpool bubble bath, this gentle and soothing essential oil can help ease your nerves, relax the mind, and alleviate insomnia so you can feel calm and get that good night’s sleep you deserve.
