I make bath salts with essential oils for their added benfits. Essential oils can help the body heal from many different ailments. The bath salt I was making today was one for pain. I started mixing my normal amounts of ingredients and then I remembered we women have lady parts. It is very important to remember when using hot oils to use proper dilution otherwise, our more sensitive areas will have a stronger reaction to these hot essential oils. As stated by Jodi Makenna at Naturally His, “hot,” meaning they produce a strong detox response or they are literally hot (you know, spicy)– like cinnamon, clove, or ginger. It is very important one knows the essential oils they are working with and who the oil is intended for. An elderly person needs a higher dilution then a younger adult. You should always make sure when buying products with essential oils in them you buy them from a registered aromatherapaist. Do a patch test when you get home. A patch test is when you use the product on a small area of skin and wait to see if you have a reaction. Essential oils are extremely beneficial, but saftey precaution should always be taken.
