Essential Oils: Bathroom and body care



  • 6 – 8 drops of Eucalyptus oil in a bath ‘cools’ the body in summer and ‘protects’ it in the winter.
  • For a sweet- smelling bathroom, dab a few drops of fragrant oil onto the spout of the hot tap and turn it on for a moment to release the fragrance.
  • For a simple toilet room freshener, drop a couple of drops of fragrant oil onto the inner cardboard tubes of the toilet rolls. It smells lovely and the fragrance lasts to the end of the rolls.
  • Place a few drops of pure essential oil such as Peppermint onto a facecloth and place it at your feet in the shower. The warm water spray will help release the scent for you to enjoy its refreshing benefits. It will help you feel energized for the day.
  • Place a few drops of your favourite fragrant oil onto towels draped over your towel rail heater. The warmth will help release the lovely scent which will diffuse through the room for hours.
  • Add a couple of drops of Rosemary essential oil to your home brand bottle of shampoo. It will help to promote glossy and healthy hair.

  • To create a pleasant, disinfecting bathroom spray, add 10 – 20 drops of pure essential oil such as Lavender, Rosemary or Thyme to 200ml water in a spray bottle. Regularly spray into the air and over toilet surfaces.
