Anti-Doom and Gloom Essential Oil Bath Recipes

Are you working hard? Or maybe hardly working? Either way, the end of the day is the perfect time to cast away your recessionary blues with an "anti-doom and gloom" bath. Light some candles and grab some essential oils. Mix up a soothing combination to calm your frayed nerves or kick it up with a stimulating combo to rev you up for an evening out on the town.

My Favorite Essential Oil Bath Recipes
Here are five of my own favorite essential oil bath recipes. I add 4 drops of each oil in 1/4 cup of olive oil.

Soothing Frayed Nerves: Lavender, chamomile, sage, and cypress

Invigorating and Refreshing: Eucalyptus, bergamot, and grapefruit

Fortifying Body and Spirit: Marjoram, thyme, rosemary, and sage

Meditative: Sandalwood, frankincense, and cedarwood

Cleansing: Bay, eucalyptus, ginger, lemon

The first four recipes work well in all temperatures of bath water, from cold to hot. The last recipe for cleansing can work very well in a cool or cold bath, especially in the summer. Enjoy!
