Using Essential Oils in the Bath | Essential Oil Safety

Hi Science Babes! Another video in the essential oil series. In this video I cover how to use essential oils safely in the bath with proper emulsifiers, a terrible experience I had with oils in the bath and a couple of my favourite combinations for a relaxing evening bath.

Always consult your physician before using essential oils especially if you are taking medications, are pregnant or breastfeeding.

    I use a tea tree oil body wash that I bought… is tea tree oil harmful to skin? I have very bad eczema and wonder if this is exasperating it

    Do not put on your pets, or in them, for that matter. TFS!

    I am from Washington. I am so happy today because I am free from Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). I have been having this Virus since the past two years now, and I have passed through many different processes in getting cured from the Virus, but nothing was working out. A friend of mine introduced me to Herbal Health Doctor called Dr Alaho Olu, who sent me hpv virus herbal remedy and my life get transformed and everything is fine and okay with me. Till now I have been going to check up and it is now going to four months and I am still negative…Thanks to Dr Alaho Olu , I will never stop telling the world about your good work

    Here because I just did the same thing with a bath and my skin is BURNING. I’m scared :/ what do I do to help the burning. Am I going to wake up with a chemical burn all over my skin?

  10. Kamal Rashad on October 10, 2021 at 9:58 am

    What about Tea Tree oil in the bath? I think I am experiencing a skin fungus issue that I unknowingly spread from my feet. I’ve heard of using Tea Tree oil to treat foot fungus so I was thinking of adding it to a hot bath to treat all the affected areas at once. What do you think?

  11. Nina Madeleine Köstinger on October 10, 2021 at 10:01 am

    Can anyone tell my what certain products are safe to use in the bath and I don’t have to mix? Like brands of bath products? I have really sensitive skin and I am little afraid to damage it!

  12. Amy Gilbert on October 10, 2021 at 10:01 am

    So much information out there regarding essential oils. People do NOT put essential oils in your pets. Do not run diffuser’s in rooms where your pet can’t leave. Do not ingest essential oils. Thank you for the video and getting the word out. You’re awesome!

  13. Willow G on October 10, 2021 at 10:01 am

    Hey Kenna! I recently heard about this brand called Evenprime and I was curious if you could review the brand/ingredients

  14. Carolyn Hecker on October 10, 2021 at 10:02 am

    Very helpful! Thank you! I just recently purchased a Bain Ultra with Aroma therapy. They suggest adding 2 drops into the reservoir with a cup of water. If you have any suggestions regarding Aroma Therapy system I would love to know. Also, what brand of essential oils is better? Are they all essentially the same? Thanks Again. Very much!!!

  15. Ynnlarcron on October 10, 2021 at 10:02 am

    Thx just had added too much of pine never thought of emulsifier necessity

  16. dreas mom on October 10, 2021 at 10:02 am

    Hay everyone out there I just recently found out essential oils in the diffusers are very unhealthy for your pets. There are three or four that are acceptable but I sure haven’t enjoyed this sent. My cat was developing a terrible cough and I just knew it wasn’t a hairball cough so I put two and two together researched and found out that essential oils are not good for your pets. Please spread the word.

    If we want to use epsom salts, but we don’t want to use cow milk, could we use soy milk or any plant-based milk instead? 🙂

  18. Anitta A on October 10, 2021 at 10:08 am

    Hi Kenna!! I was wondering if you can make a video talking about Curology, I’m so curious to see if it works!

  19. Super Mario on October 10, 2021 at 10:09 am

    MILK IS NOT AN EMULSIFIER TO BE USED WITH ESSENTIAL OILS. What a load of absolute bs, and this is the reason there’s so much nonsense trash online and people have no real knowledge of things. You MUST use a "carrier oil", NOT MILK.

  20. Dustin on October 10, 2021 at 10:10 am

    Why does my shoppers drug mart lavender life brand Epsom salts just end up having the oils come to the surface and I can’t just straight up put oil in the water myself?

  21. Daph Avery on October 10, 2021 at 10:11 am

    About a year ago I used orange essential oil in my bath thinking it’d smell lovely and I’d have a nice time. Well in about twenty minutes I jumped out of the bathtub crying because it burned me all over. Never making that mistake again. I’m weary of most oils now.

  22. Hannah Shaw on October 10, 2021 at 10:12 am

    Me watching this in bath wondering if this is ok shit

  23. Savannah Vaught on October 10, 2021 at 10:12 am

    you and Hyram= iconic

  24. Abigail Knowles on October 10, 2021 at 10:14 am

    Could coconut milk or another non dairy milk work?

  25. Mimi Orbe on October 10, 2021 at 10:14 am

    Great video content! Sorry for the intrusion, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you thought about – Chireetler Program Restart Rule (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a good one of a kind guide for learning how to get rid of hemorrhoids without the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my GF got cool results with it.

  26. giovanni brito on October 10, 2021 at 10:17 am

    Nice. l dit it tremendous fragrance you came out the shower.l think you trow a lot of drops it,s only 7 drops on the bathtub water, l trow it too. after l do poop, l flush it & trow 7 drops, for the bad odor of the fragrance oil, the essential oil is natural & everything, but the smell is not strong!

  27. Sandra C. on October 10, 2021 at 10:17 am

    For essential oil applications, how do you recommend I apply them on my skin? I have dry skin that of course is oily to compensate and all the hand washing lately is making it worse. I was thinking a shea butter and coconut oil mix with maybe another essential oil (and I haven’t given much time admittedly) and would love to hear your perspective/advice.

  28. Halima Peterson on October 10, 2021 at 10:18 am

    Happy to find you

  29. Nina Altenburger on October 10, 2021 at 10:18 am

    What are milk alternatives for vegan for bath usage? What would work best?

  30. Theejoshhall on October 10, 2021 at 10:21 am

    So if I wanted to add cilantro essential oil to my bathtub can it be mix with adding body wash to the bathtub too. Like essential oil followed by body wash? Just want to get a clarification before making a move.

  31. megan oliveira on October 10, 2021 at 10:23 am

    Hey Kenna, I have a skincare question. How do you feel about using bio oil on the face as a moisturizer/serum?! I find it the best for my dry irritated skin however I worry it’s too heavy for the face and pores…?

    Thanks!!!

  32. susie mollner on October 10, 2021 at 10:25 am

    If yall do the peppermint thing and stumbled acrosd this video i gotchu drain the bath get out of it and refil it thrn scrub ur skin with any type of body wash and it went away i hope it helps

  33. Colby Maggard on October 10, 2021 at 10:26 am

    I did the peppermint oil bath about 7 drops with a not hot but not cold bath and I thought it was amazing it felt cooling and smelt great the way I would describe it is the same feeling as freshly shaved legs on the finest silk sheets I know she said it was bad but I’ve did it for 20 years and i have never had any problems

  34. Jordan McMillan on October 10, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Love this series! I have watched so many friends go in deep with YL essential oils, who heavily encourage ingestion (or at least the did–haven’t kept up). I would love to see a video about essential oil use in oil-based skincare products (balms, face oils, etc.).

  35. Karin on October 10, 2021 at 10:28 am

    Thank you for another amazing video! Could you please do a video about how to use essential oils in a diffuser? Would be really interesting to hear a more scientific outlook on that too 🙂

  36. Amber Nelson on October 10, 2021 at 10:30 am

    as soon as you said ‘peppermint’ I panicked on your behalf it’s such a powerful substance and a little goes a LONG way. Although when I have bad sinus infections I will dilute a single drop of peppermint oil into a quart of freshly boiled, sterilized water and use that as a sinus rinse. It really helps clear everything out.

  37. Jill Sanchioni on October 10, 2021 at 10:30 am

    A Solubilizer is ideal for essential oils baths. Polysorbate or even just a little body wash, bubble bath or liquid soap would be an excellent way to properly dilute eos in bath. Many bathbombs use poly80 for that reason.

  38. Mea Games on October 10, 2021 at 10:31 am

    I did this in water and it made me super cold

  39. NatalyaT on October 10, 2021 at 10:33 am

    So there’s a lot of contradicting information on the internet on essential oils and now I wonder if it’s a safe thing to use vaginally. I’ve heard a few youtubers talk about using lavender and evening primrose essential oil in the vagina with perineal massages to prep for labor and I wonder if this can cause harm or actually do good? Could you maybe do a video on this?

  40. ❀ǟռʊ♕ on October 10, 2021 at 10:34 am

    Please talk about Brightening agents, for example Alpha Arbutin, Vitamin C, which form of Vitamin C is the most efficient, Niacinamide, Kojic Acid and how to use them, side effects etc. Also please talk about controversial ingredients like Hydroquinone etc.

  41. Gina Clemens on October 10, 2021 at 10:34 am

    Any thoughts on adding tea tree oil to a bath?

  42. Hannah Ellen on October 10, 2021 at 10:37 am

    You shouldn’t be making videos on essential oils. You need to do your research.
