Blues Be Gone Aromatherapy Bubblebath Recipes

The Blue Suntory Rose was created by implanting the gene that leads to the synthesis of the blue pigment Delphinium in Pansies.

Homemade bubblebath is easy to make and I have two seasonal homemade bubblebath recipes to share in this post.

The color blue is a mentally-relaxing color that has a pacifying effect and encourages relaxation. It’s frequently used in bedrooms and hospitals for calming hyperactivity and evoking sleep.

The calming effect is also uplifting on a spiritual level for the color blue is associated with water, with the sky and the universe beyond.

But there’s another kind of blueness. It’s estimated that 15% of Canadians suffer from a combination of lack of sunlight and activity and experience the symptoms of winter blues AKA Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Overcoming the winter blues is challenging and part of my strategy for coping is aromatherapy.

Clary sage, ylang ylang and jasmine essential oils that inspire confidence and a positive outlook. Clary sage oil and ylang ylang are used to uplift and help combat anxiety and depression. Clary Sage encourages calmness and peace. Ylang Ylang encourages calmness and enthusiasm.  Jasmine’s powerful scent encourages feelings of optimism, joy and harmonious balance.

Geranium, rose, rosemary and lemon essential oils have a balancing effect on the emotions.  Geranium oil has a calming and uplifting effect and is helpful for relieving depression, nervousness and fear.  During the middle ages rose oil was a remedy for depression. Rosemary essential oil has the highest hydrogen content of all the essential oils and has both stimulant and relaxant properties. Lemon oil is invigorating and studies show it has an uplifting antidepressant effect.

I have been feeling blue and I’m sharing these two aromatherapy bubblebath recipes for the bath anytime you are feeling blue. Make the blend a few days before you will use so the oils combine. Shake or stir vigorously before using. Start with using small in regular size tub and less in a Jacuzzi sized tub with water jets and adjust the amount as required.

  2. We are sweltering! Literally. Mr O Jnr 2 is complaining of “cooking” in bed.

    I would love some cool right now.

    Aromatherapy IS great and we do use essential oils quite a bit in our home.

    Happy winter months to you!

    • It snowed here last night just after my husband took his old computer in and the new one to have the data transfer done by the techy in case something goes wrong. We had already done 2 hours of hard labor before 6:30 AM and started our actual work we are both exhausted now. Provided the power lines don’t go down I shall have a bubblebath and head to bed early tonight.

  3. I make my own bath salts and bath oils, and sometimes dabble in scrubs as well. You have some great ideas for uplifting recipes! I love to put geranium in my salts with bergamot, and often I blend jasmine with lavender. Aromatherapy is great and has so many uses in life. Thanks for the post!
