Today, we’re zoning in on five very holistic and healthful Bath Oil options from Elemental Herbology and what powers their benefits to you.
Behind the 5 Element Aromatherapy Bath & Body Oils:
The Elemental Herbology brand from the UK is deep-rooted in the Chinese Medicine Five Element philosophy: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. We all represent a certain element depending on our lifestyle, diet, mood, etc. and your element can change as the seasons change, too. 5 formulas, for 5 different elements, with 5 different wellness results. Formulated with natural plant essential oils in a base oil of Peach Kernel, Apricot and Jojoba Oils. The essential oils will provide an aromatherapeutic experience, while the base oils provide a way to deliver the essential oils from the bottle to the tub safely – plus they give you a bonus nourishing and hydrating boost while you soak.
The best part:
All five elemental bath & body oils are dual purpose for the bathtub or for use as a nourishing body oil. Add 2-3 pumps into a warm bath and soak for 20 minutes. And/Or, after your bath, apply the body oil to clean, dry skin to nourish and hydrate.
