I am a big fan of adaptogens. They are plants, mushrooms, roots and herbs with amazing medicinal properties.
Their main function is to help your body and mind deal with different types of stress and have a normalizing influence on the body.
Besides its ability to balance out stress, each adaptogen has its own specific properties.
It can help provide more energy and endurance, relaxation, recovery, focus etc.
What makes adaptogens so special is that they adapt to your individual needs and balance out what’s needed.
Adaptogens have been used throughout history as part of Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, in different fields of Herbalism and various other native traditions.
Due to the growing interest in holistic living, adaptogens have become more available to us, which is great, because they can help you get your health to the next level.
While adaptogens are mostly known for internal use in drinks and in food, they have tremendous benefits for both skin and hair.
This soothing, indulgent Ashwagandha Brahmi lavender bath oil is especially formulated to help you unwind and relax after a long, busy day.
Ashwagandha and Brahmi are powerful adaptogens known for their stress-relief properties, they help you relax, provide mental clarity and a sense of well-being.
And when we talk about relaxation lavender will come to most people’s mind. I love using it in my DIY Beauty recipes such as in this lavender coconut milk body wash, lavender sugar scrub and lavender coconut oil deodorant.
Lavender is amazing for your skin. It has healing, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties, improves blood circulation and soothes several skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne.
Coconut oil comes with its own impressive list of benefits for your skin, which I wrote this article about. It’s softening, anti-aging, nourishes your skin deeply, has powerful antimicrobial properties and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I am all about pure, honest simplicity that works. This DIY recipe follows that same philosophy. All you need is to mix the oils and add them to your bath water.
Ashwagandha Brahmi Lavender bath oil
The Ashwagandha, Brahmi and lavender oil are always liquid, but if it’s cold where you are, your coconut oil will be solid. You can easily melt it in a warm water bath in order to blend it equally with the other oils.
You can read more about the best ways to melt coconut oil here. My preferred melting method is Au Bain Marie or warm water bath.
This is how you do it: scoop out the amount of coconut oil that you need. You can also make a bigger batch of the bath oil to use a few times and store it in a jar.
Put the coconut oil in a jar inside of a pan with shimmering water. Once the coconut oil is fully melted, mix in the other oils.
Add the mixture to your bath and enjoy the soothing properties of this power team of lavender, Ashwagandha, Brahmi and coconut oil.
