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.
