How To Revitalize Your Bath With Essential Oils
Essential oils at bath time. There's nothing like them when immersing yourself into a tub of warm to hot water. Do you put them straight into your tub? No. You add them to salts, flowers, herbs, powdered milk, vegetable oils and other ingredients.

Before we get into the how-to, let's take a look at two seemingly opposite yet complementary oils.

The Beauty of Blood Orange and Eucalyptus



As we move through the seasons, blood orange and eucalyptus can be helpful in keeping your body healthy. They can be used all year long and can easily become part of your must have oils for wellness.

Blood Orange Oil is similar to sweet orange oil. It's antibacterial, antiviral and it's an antiseptic. It can be used in everything from soaps to face washes. It's also great for adding to diffuser blends and has been known to clear away unwanted germs and microbial activity.

Offering emotional and energy support, blood orange is said to help unblock and circulate stagnant energy. It's also said to give courage when overwhelmed and not willing to ask for help. We've all been there.

Eucalyptus essential oil is known for helping with sinus and respiratory challenges. But did you know that is helps relieve sore muscles and helps combat stress? It's also known to help boost mental clarity and combat brain fog. I've got my bottle sitting at my desk this very moment.

When you combine blood orange with eucalyptus you just might have the best of both worlds. To ensure that you get a good combination of the two, here's a recipe for you to try.
