I suppose some things are self-evident. Obviously, I love things that smell great and appreciate the therapeutic value of things that smell great. :-)
And like many of us, this has led me to try all sorts of lotions, concoctions, and bath products. My latest excursion into the land of The Ultimate Shower Experience involved "shower bombs".
These are little mounds of baking soda, water (sometimes other stuff) and essential oils that you set in a corner of your shower. As the water hits them, they are supposed to infuse your shower with great (and therapeutic) aromas.
I've bought them from a couple of stores (one local, one a high-end shop), crafters ... I've thought about making my own since it's silly to pay $4 - $8 for what amounts to mostly baking soda (and unknown & very likely inferior/synthetic essential oils).
Gosh, I'm such an essential oil snob.
The thing is, I never got that "spa steam shower" experience that was promised ... until I tried this decidedly low-tech approach... Ready?
Immediately after your bath or shower, while the bathroom is nice and steamy and the pores of your skin are clean and ready receptacles for a great essential oil experience:
BAM! Now that's what I'm talking about! A one - two punch -- 1) The steam in the bathroom really works to get those healing aromas into your lungs. and 2) The direct application to your skin makes SOOO much more sense than washing these precious oils down the drain.
Save your essential oils -- don't "bomb" them!!
Okay, go - NOW - and try it! Tell me what oils you used and how much you love this!
