The art of the fragrant bath
Run hot water (about 38°C). Prepare 10 drops of the essential oil of your choice. Before pouring them in the bath, it should be diluted. Pure essential oils cannot mix with water, moreover some of them are irritating if they are put directly on the skin.
Differents solutions to mix essential oils :
a teaspoonful of milk, preferably powdered
a glass of coarse sea salt
an egg yolk
a teaspoonful of hydrating vegetable oil like primrose, wheat germ, sweet almond or apricot kernel. Those oils mix well with the water of the bath and leave a very soft film on it.
Pour the preparation on the bath. Relax, and enjoy !
