Aromatherapy Kefir Bath
Relax and escape into a soothing and floral paradise with an aromatherapy kefir bath! Kefir is wonderfully beneficial for your skin; it naturally contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that is said to reduce wrinkles or the signs of aging, and improve the overall look and feel of the skin. In kefir, alpha hydroxy acid is in the form of lactic acid.
Lactic acid naturally harmonizes with the slight acidity of our skin and hair. The lactaic acid in kefir softly dissolves the lipids that hold old skin cells together and helps to remove dead skin particles so that new skin can emerge into new radiance. Other miracles of alpha hydroxy acid found in kefir include reducing the appearance of wrinkles and scar tissue, and fading aging spots and freckles (pigmentations from sun exposure).
If you would like to make your own kefir for a calming and therapeutic bath, you can find the organic, probiotic kefir grain cultures in my etsy shop...all you need to do is purchase them once and you can make delicious, healthy kefir indefinitely!
I love to add 1/2 to a cup of kefir to my bath with some of my favorite essential oil combinations like Frankincense and Rosewood; or I will add my favorite bath oil: Plantlife's Ylang Ylang Body Oil "For Soft and Silky Skin". It has all natural ingredients; only pure essential oils (like Calendula, Chamomile, and Ylang Ylang) and carrier oils (like Apricot, Jojoba, Grape Seed, Sweet Almond and Olive). Ylang Ylang is an aphrodisiac...this silky skin aromatherapy bath would be a pleasingly arousing experience for you and your lover!
