Essential oils, dried flowers, aromatic plants: once a week, make up a pleasurable bath. On the program: peace of the body and pleasure of the senses ... Flavia Mazelin Salvi
To take full advantage of these few minutes of serenity, it is important to take care of the details. Light, silence, comfort. Some tips make the difference: a candle light, the laptop off, a soft towel under the neck. Avoid the use of soap and shampoo at the end of the bath, because their active ingredients disrupt the beneficial effects of essential oils. The little extra: finish with a cool shower of a few seconds to tone the skin and activate the circulation.
Energizing bath with aromatic plants
