Essential Oils for a Vitality Bath

To wake up in the morning or to refresh yourself after a hard day’s work or before an evening out, this bath gives vitality to the physical body. (If you are pregnant or asthmatic, do not use this bath.)

3 drops rosemary essential oil
2 drops bergamot essential oil
2 drops peppermint oil
2 drops thyme essential oil

Add the oils after you have run a full warm bath, and then stir thoroughly to make sure the oil is evenly dispersed. Plan to remain in the bathtub for at least 20 minutes.

Tips to keep you feeling revitalized
Get sufficient rest and sleep, and set aside time to practice deep relaxation.
Take a five-minute “soother” by relaxing in an armchair and breathing deeply before engaging in stressful activities.
Do as little as 20 minutes of aerobic exercise several times each week. Aerobic exercise allows endorphins–which have been called the “brain’s narcotic”–to be released into the system. Endorphins let your mind soar free and keep you feeling good for up to five hours after exercise.
