Cleanse your mind along with your body
A good bath can always prove to be relaxing. It is even better if it is combined with fragrances that lift your mood, relax your tired muscles and energize you. Options like aromatic bath salts, essential oils and fragrant soaps give you a complete bath and heal your senses along with your body.
Aromatherapy soaps have become more popular than bath oils; they come in pure essential oil base or mixed with other non aromatic but therapeutic herbs. Available in the form of bars, liquids, gels and cleansers, these soaps are the perfect answer for a truly relaxing and rejuvenating bath. Although they cost more than a simple herbal soap, aromatherapy soaps are worth buying. They can be used as daily cleansers or for spa
purposes also. Granular aromatic soaps offer exfoliation of the skin.
The soaps are made from natural vegetable oils in which the required essential oil is added for the effect.
The vegetable oil is rich in proteins, while the essential oils nurture the body. The essential oils are
absorbed by the body through the skin which is more effective than simply inhaling the vapors. The best
method that can ensure optimum use of the soaps is to use them under warm water and to let them
stay on for atleast a few minutes.
Good aromatherapy soaps never have added colors in them and are made from pure essential oils. It is
recommended that people should purchase aromatherapy soaps from reputed sellers to avoid inferior
soaps that may harm the skin. Most popular of the aromatic soaps is the lavender soap which is known to
lend a soothing and calming effect on the body and mind. Other popular varieties of aromatherapy soaps
include Patchouli, Ylang Ylang and Chamomile. The soaps are also perfect for gifting purposes and are
available in special gift packs too.
