Are you unsure of how to use essential oils in the shower or bath? No worries. You can transform your shower to a relaxing retreat with these tips.

How to Use Essential Oils in the Shower: What you need to know

Adding Essential Oils To Body Wash

It’s easy to enhance the effectiveness of your shower gel or soap by adding essential oils. If you want to add essential oils, choose a body wash that is unscented. If your body wash or soap already has a scent, it could interfere with the essential oil you choose.

Choose an essential oil to benefit your skin. Choose from:

  • Lavender for relaxation
  • Chamomile as an anti-inflammation
  • Sandalwood moisturizing lotion
  • Rosemary for skin stimulation
  • Geranium to balance skin oils

You can also make your own custom blends of essential oils. Check the labels of your essential oils to ensure they are safe for your skin.

Add five to ten drops of oil into your body wash. If this is not enough, you can add more. You will learn which oils work best for you the more you experiment.

Add Essential Oils to Shampoo

Add essential oils to an unscented shampoo to transform a shower into something luxurious and nourishing. According to Wholesale Botanics the best essential oils are:

  • Lavender promotes hair growth
  • Rosemary can improve hair thickness
  • Cedarwood can help prevent hair loss
  • Lemongrass for preventing dandruff
  • Tea tree oil has anti-microbial properties

Check the label to make sure it is safe to add the essential oil to shampoo. Start slowly and gradually increase the amount until you find the right balance.

Spraying the Walls with Essential Oils

It is one of the easiest ways to use essential oil in the shower. You only need to combine 15 drops of the essential oil of your choice with two ounces water in a spray container. Spray the mixture on the shower walls. This is an inexpensive aromatherapy treatment that you can do at home.

You can use peppermint or a combination of sweet orange and spearmint essential oils to boost your energy. You can experiment with peppermint, or a mixture of orange sweet and spearmint if you want to boost your energy.

What to keep in mind when using essential oils in the shower

You probably lead a very busy life if you are anything like most people these days. You don’t have to take a trip or schedule a spa session to pamper yourself. Try using essential oils to relax in the shower. You may find it easier than you think!
