Create Bathroom Bliss with Essential Oils

The modern home bathroom is so much more than the place you go to “go.” We want our bathrooms to be functional for more than a restroom break or the rush through morning and evening routines. The trend is towards larger, more comfortable bathrooms that have essentially been transformed into mini at-home spas. The ideal bathroom has become a sanctuary of escape and indulgence, perhaps with a deep whirlpool tub, tiled walk-in shower, modern lighting, even video and music. However, if your bathroom isn’t as large or as upscale as you want it to be, you can still create a fabulous atmosphere with essential oils and aromatherapy spa accessories.

Collect a few clear glass apothecary jars and fill them with your own customized mineral bath mixes and bath teas. Fill decorative bottles or small stoppered cruets with scented bath and body oils. Fill an atomizer bottle with an aromatic air-freshening spray. Add a lovely lacquered box and fill it with dried rose petals for strewing in your tub. Finally, select one or more candle lamp aromatherapy diffusers to create an ambiance of flickering light and delectable scent for your next indulgent soak in the tub.

ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

CARROT SEED

Carrot Seed essential oilCarrot seed oil is distilled from the seeds of a wild form of the common garden carrot. It's the Queen Anne’s lace flower that you may have seen blooming along roadsides. The oil has a unique earthy, musky aroma and lends its benefits to many skin care applications. Carrot seed oil is especially appropriate to include in your finest facial care products and, perhaps more than any other essential oil, deserves a place in your beauty regime. It blends well with rose and lavender.

Purifying Carrot Seed Clay Mask
1 ounce French white clay powder
3 tablespoons freshly brewed hot green tea
1 teaspoon baobab oil
11 drops carrot seed essential oil
10 drops Aura Cacia Rose Otto or Absolute Precious Essential™

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. If mix is too dry, add a bit more tea; if mix is too wet, add a bit more clay powder. Smooth onto face and allow the mixture to remain in place for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.

Carrot Seed & Rosehip Facial Mist
4 ounces purified water
12 drops (1 pump) organic rosehip oil
12 drops carrot seed essential oil
12 drops lavender essential oil

Place all ingredients in a spray mister bottle. Shake vigorously and apply lightly to face after cleansing or as a moisturizing refresher during the day.
