The Secret Ingredient — Essential Oils
For centuries, essential oils have been used for their restorative properties. These oils come from plant extracts that help with a multitude of psychological and physical problems such as inflammation, skin issues, insomnia, muscle aches, and stress. Some of them are so potent that they are used for seduction.
Following are some of the top scents that are available in bath bombs:
The herb lavender is found in almost all body care lotions and treatments. Lavender oil works wonders in reducing anxiety and relieving stress. It also helps with insomnia and headaches. After a long hectic workday, a lavender bath bomb will surely suck out all the tension from your body.
The compounds of a rose plant are thought to have healing properties. This is why rose is mostly used for health-related purposes. A rose bath bomb calms your nervous system and skin. Apart from relieving stress and anxiety, it also helps with menstrual cramps.
The strong and sweet aroma of cherry makes the most deliciously fragrant bath bomb. While cherry oil is seldom used as it does not offer many benefits, but it is sometimes combined with other essential oils to create a unique scent. The biggest benefit of a cherry bath bomb is that its strong scent relaxes the mind and body.
The scent of sandalwood is widely known as a powerful perfume. In fact, it is also used in chocolates and candies. In traditional Chinese medicine, the scent of sandalwood is believed to have a positive effect on mental and physical disorders. A sandalwood bath bomb will help you control your insomnia, lower blood pressure, and reduce anxiety.
Orange essential oil is extracted from orange peels. Its refreshing scent has the most profound effect on the body. An orange bath bomb will not only relieve stress and relax your muscles but also rejuvenate your body.
Ylang-ylang essential oil comes from the flowers of a tree, which is native to Indonesia. It is believed that ylang-ylang flowers have aphrodisiac qualities. A ylang-ylang bath bomb enhances the mood and works as an antidepressant. It also has sedative properties, which makes it perfect to be used for a soothing, before-bedtime bath.
Last but not the least; clary sage oil simply melts your tension away. A clary sage bath bomb often includes multiple oils such as orange and lavender to create the ultimate, relaxing bath.
