Questions and answers about bath essences
If you still think that a bath with essential oils or with fresh flowers and fruits is a superstitious spectacle, you only have to ask the right questions once:
Why are the essences called essential oils?
Etheric means were heavenly. They shouldn’t really be called oils, because these oils have nothing to do with fatty oils such as jojoba oil and walnut, olive oil or soybean oil: they are volatile and hardly anyone leaves a stain.
Why do essential oils have to cost so much?
Because they are precious. It often takes several baskets of flowers to make a tiny bottle of real essence. If essential oils are very cheap, they are made synthetically.
But then is a full bath with such additives priceless for normal earners?
No, because a few drops are enough for an entire tub. For an aromatherapeutic effect, it is enough to put a few drops on the water surface, close the door and the windows and then breathe in the fragrance that rises from the warm water.
Can’t you buy bath foam, salt or oil with real essential oils?
The trade offers bath oils that contain essential oils, but mostly artificial ones for cost reasons.
Isn’t it possible to make your own bath oil with real natural essences?
Yes, and very easily. If you are acting as a bathroom mixer, you only have to add natural emulsifiers to the essences, then they mix with the water. Mixed with cream, milk or honey, the mixtures get an additional care effect.
