How do you avoid chemicals in bath and shower gels?
The answer is simple: make your own! I’ve become an obsessive label reader. Have you picked up bath gel lately and read the label? There are A LOT of nasty chemicals in there! My desire to avoid those chemicals and my passion for essential oils led me to the creation of my own scented bath gel. I love it and I can experiment with several essential oil combinations. I might be a little bit of an oily addict.
How do you make your own bath and shower gel?
My favorite essential oils for the bath are Lavender and Oola Balance blend. You are probably familiar with lavender and know that it is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. I have a large 15 ml bottle and LOVE it!
You probably aren’t familiar with the Oola Balance blend. This blend is designed to align and balance your center giving you an increase in concentration with a positive outlook. As mind and body are balanced, the ability to focus on passions, behaviors, and health are amplified for the better. The ingredients of the Oola Balance blend are: Lavender (Lavandula Officinal), Frankincence (Boswellia Carteri), Ocotea (Ocotea Quixos Lauraceae Leaf), Sandalwood (Santalum Album), Ylang Ylang (Cananga Odorata), Orange (Citrus Auranium), Angelica (Angelica Archangelica), Geranium (Pelargonium Graveol), Hyssop (Officinalis), Sage (Lavendulifolia), Spruce (Picea Mariana), Coriander (Coriandrum Sativum), Bergamot (Coumarin Free), Lemon (Citrus Limon), Jasmine (Jasminum Absolute), Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum Nobile), Palmarosa (Cymbopogon Martinii), Rose (Rosa Damascena), Balsam Fir (Abies Balsamea), Myrrh (Commiphora Myrrha), Cistus (Cistus Ladanifer), Spikenard (Nardostachys Jataman), Blue Spruce (Picea Pungens). AMAZING!
