Bath time is, hopefully, such an enjoyable time for a parent and a child. The child spends time splashing and playing, and gets all clean and cozy for bedtime. Have you ever considered how to take bath time up a notch? Our secret: adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the water. This can be done in a baby’s bath tub or a regular bath tub. What’s even better is that certain oils have certain healing properties.
For instance, peppermint can soothe nausea. Lavender can fight germs and improve sleep quality. Rose benefits the skin, and geranium can calm inflammation.
If your child is fighting an issue, do a little research and find an essential oil that can benefit them. If not, pick your favorite scent and add a little something special to bath time!
