Lavender & Rosemary ‘ReLuxation’ Spa Shower Experience

lav-rosemary-shower

As a busy entrepreneur, I’m always looking for simple, self-care mini-spa rituals that I can do at home, and last night I created this luxurious, relaxing shower/bath combo experience that I know you’re gonna love!

After just 20-30 minutes, I felt refreshed, soothed and serene.

My bathtub is small, so instead of doing a full body soaking bath, I did this as a shower/foot spa instead.

Here’s the recipe: 

Mandatory:

  • 20-30 minutes of absolute privacy in a bathroom with a locked door
  • Spa music: I love the Relax: New World Music Spa Collection (Opening Petals by Llewellyn & Marina Swain; Butterfly World by David Sun, etc.)
  • Sea salt (or Epsom salt), approximately 1/2 cup (4 oz.)
  • Lavender essential oil & Rosemary essential oil (I use only dōTERRA)
  • dōTERRA Spa Body Wash or soap of your choice

Optional:

  • Glass of wine (I had Jason Stephens 2011 Estate Merlot – delicious!)
  • Cup of tea
  • Candles (flameless candles are best)

Instructions:

  1. Start the music and light candles. Take your drink of choice into the shower with you.
  2. Take a warm shower – get clean and wash your hair if you like
  3. Once you’re clean, put a stopper in the tub, but keep the shower going
  4. Sprinkle in the salt and stir with your feet
  5. Sprinkle 8-10 drops of Lavender oil and 6-8 drops of Rosemary oil into tub water
  6. While standing with your back to the shower, drizzle 3-4 drops of Lavender oil onto your chest, followed by 3-4 drops of Rosemary oil; rub oils on your body and into hands
  7. Raise hands to your face and take in a few deep, relaxing breaths
  8. Express gratitude for the moment of pure luxury, your beautiful body and your amazing life!
  9. Sprinkle 3-4 drops of Rosemary oil onto your scalp and gently massage in (Rosemary helps with hair growth!) Rinse after a few minutes.
  10. Luxuriate in the experience: inhale the love and abundance in your life; exhale gratitude.

I hope you enjoy this experience as much as I do!

Got sore muscles? I did… but now I’m better!

aromatouch

This is one of my favorite blends, as it’s used for massage and general relaxation. It also works great for sore muscles. I slipped in the bathroom yesterday and injured my hamstring, and it hurt like you know what. I have been massaging AromaTouch oil and a few others on my thigh, and it feels about 80% better, after just 1 day.

Also, the scent is outdoorsy, not flowery, making it easy to use on men as well.

I love this stuff, and I love that I had this oil on hand, so I could start self-treating my leg right away. Once you learn about the power of the oils, you’ll never want to be without them.
