Synergies | Recipes - Cape Chamomile - Invigorating Bath Soak
- 10 drops Cape Chamomile essential oil (Eriocephalus punctulatus)
- 6 drops Rosemary essential oil (Rosmarinus officinalis)
- 3. 5 drops Eucalyptus essential oil (Eucalyptus globulus)
- 1/2 cup Epsom Salt (Magnesium sulfate)
- 1/4 cup Dead Sea Salt (Maris Sal)
- 1 tbsp Carrier oil of choice (e.g., Sweet Almond, Jojoba, or Grapeseed oil)
Mixing Instructions: In a mixing bowl, combine the Epsom Salt and Dead Sea Salt. Add the Cape Chamomile, Rosemary, and Eucalyptus essential oils, along with your chosen carrier oil. Mix thoroughly to ensure even distribution of oils throughout the salts. Store the blend in an airtight container to maintain freshness.
Caution: When using essential oils, it is crucial to always dilute them with a carrier oil or in a diffuser, as applying undiluted oils directly to the skin may cause irritation or adverse reactions.
Additionally, it is highly recommended to perform a patch test before using any essential oil for the first time.
To conduct a patch test, dilute a small amount of the essential oil in a carrier oil and apply it to a small area of your skin. Wait for 24 hours to observe any signs of redness, itching, or irritation.
If you experience any adverse reactions, discontinue use immediately and consult a healthcare professional. Remember, essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts and should be used with caution to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
