Citrusy Wake-Up Bath

Citrusy Wake-Up Bath

This lively fragranced bath is a super antidote to the post-holiday blahs. One of the oils in this recipe is antibacterial as well as delicious-smelling, a great idea for winter when we’re exposed to so many colds and flus. In fact, all of the essential oils in this recipe smell wonderful and will keep practically forever. What a simple, enlivening recharge!

Run yourself a nice warm bath, add these magical oils, and sink in. Ahhhh!

3 drops lemon essential oil
3 drops rosemary essential oil
2 drops peppermint essential oil

Add oils directly to a tub full of warm water and mix well. You can find essential oils at your local natural foods store.
