If you’re in the process of planning your wedding, we can imagine that you’ve been a wee bit busy of late. Believe us, taking 20 minutes to unplug and unwind is a necessary luxury during those crazy weeks. Our favorite way to chill out is to soak up a little rosy goodness in the bath with Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Nurturing Bath Essence. The rich and warm scent of rose is soothing and gentle, and the oils of jojoba, avocado and almond help to nourish dry skin, so you’ll come out glowing like a goddess, too!
Psst! Did you know: Essential oils, which are precious, aromatic and medicinal compounds carefully extracted from plants, are believed to interact with our brain and body chemistry and therefore have a direct impact on our health and well being. Lavender essential oils, for example, are thought to reduce the production of cortisol, the stress inducing hormone in our bodies. Artificially produced scents, on the other hand, will not have those same positive effects, other than the associations we might have with their smells. So when shopping for aromatherapy bath products, make sure ingredients read “essential oil, extract or essence,” and never “fragrance.”
