How to Use Aromatherapy Oils, In the Bath or for Massage
Bathing – 'Letting Go' Exercise
Fill the bath with warm, not hot water. Add the oils or bath salts to your bath. Relax in the bath for no longer than twenty minutes. Just before you are ready to get out, close your eyes and relax, taking a deep breath. Allow yourself to imagine all your concerns and 'stuff' that you have been holding onto to just fall away from you into the bath water. Pull the bath plug out while you are still in the bath and allow the water to drain while you remain in the water. Wait until the bath is empty. Imagine all the old energy, the unwanted 'stuff' you just let go of, which you no longer need draining away out of the bath. Then shower briefly, towel dry and dress.
