One of my favorite rituals on a cold winter’s night is a warm bath. Depending on the bath ingredients and water temperature, a bath can relax, energize or help soothe the aches and chills of a cold or flu. For the ultimate bathing experience, light a few candles, put on your favorite music, and prepare a mug of herbal tea or hot spiced cider to accompany your bath.

Bath Essential Oils



Aromatherapy Benefits

A few drops of fragrant essential oils transform a bath into a spa-like experience. But essential oils are far more than just pleasing aromas. These concentrated plant essences retain the healing properties of the herbs and flowers from which they are distilled. Relief from anxiety and stress, muscle tension and insomnia are just a few of the benefits attributed to aromatherapy.
