An aromatic bath is a great way to relax after a hard day and clean the skin. Talk about the nuances of home treatments?
Relaxing bath with essential oils, herbs and other components have a healing effect, so I have some rules and contraindications.
In order to determine the type of bath — refer to a specialist, who will pick up a certain kind of procedure.
1. Peeling skin
The first thing it is advisable to make before using the baths — to carry out the exfoliation (removing the top dead skin layer). Use a scrub that suits you, because we need to clean, not damage the skin.
2. Observe the water temperature
Temperature conditions – an important point of the procedure. It depends on how much you can be in the water. Hot streams affect the human body. For example, relaxing hot baths can take 10-20 minutes, and cooler – about 40 minutes.
3. Do not use foaming tools
Foaming agents (gel, foam, shampoo, and others) will interact with the other components that you use to prepare a relaxing bath. This may reduce the main effect of the procedure.
4. Observe the correct concentration of substances
In order to get the maximum benefit from aromatic baths — calculate the correct concentration of essential oils and other components. Do not add more than five drops of the substance.
5. Take a test drive
Before taking a relaxing bath – make a test for allergic reactions, because essential oils are quite “aggressive.” Such a step “will help” to avoid undesirable consequences.
It is worth refusing such a procedure if you have problems with the work of the heart, gynecological or oncological diseases, as well as other chronic diseases.
