How To Use Essential Oils In The Shower + Ideas
There’s nothing quite like a calming and hot shower. You wash away the day and for just a second everything is okay. Whatever your shower routine looks like, I have a guaranteed way to spruce it up. Essential oils!
Oils in the shower can be great for a whole host of things. Helping to boost your immune system, calming down your body + brain, creating a relaxing environment, energizing you, clearing up congestion, and more. Here’s how you use oils properly in the shower.
(Note: I will only be talking about doTERRA oils as they are the purest oils in the world and extremely potent. I don’t recommend using any other brand as it could contain toxins.)
How to use the oils
Put 1-2 drops on the floor of the shower. Then add 1-2 drops on the wall of the shower. Put it just out of reach of the water so it doesn’t wash away immediately. Steam up the shower so the oils are captured in the steam. Step in and enjoy!
