Best Essential Oils to Ease Your Mind & Body

by Mumu Bath

essential oils for relaxation

Essential oils have been used for centuries as a natural way to help people feel more relaxed, get better sleep (Sleep Association), and find natural health solutions. Essential oils are considered natural because they are taken directly from plants. The potent oils contain the “essence” of the plants, which is why they’re called “essential oils.” Essential oils are a convenient, available, and versatile way to access the healing properties of various plants.

When you inhale these oils via diffuser, take in the scent, or apply them directly to your skin (usually diluted with a carrier oil), your body is able to receive the benefits. Essential oils can promote relaxation, stress relief, reduced anxiety, overall healing, improved immunity, and better sleep. However, it’s important to know which essential oils are best for certain conditions, and Mumu Bath has the perfect products to help!

3 Essential Oils to Help Improve Overall Health and Calm


Lavender is more than just a lovely purple flower. Lavender acts as a natural sedative which can reduce stress and help you get a better, more relaxing night’s sleep.

When you add lavender into your daily routine, the extra relaxation benefits can help you get a full night of quality REM sleep, and you will wake up feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Since it promotes calm without making you feel drowsy, you can take a break to breathe in the calming lavender scent during the day as well to relieve stress, anxiety, and tension.

Try our Lavender Oasis bar and our Signature Hydrating Facial, and let soothing lavender take all your stress away.


Eucalyptus is popular with many massage therapists because the leafy plant acts as a natural way to clear your sinuses. When you inhale the scent of eucalyptus, it breaks up the mucus that would normally inhibit deep breaths (Sleep Association). Then, you can breathe deeply and fully relax during a massage.

Our Orange Eucalyptus Soap is the perfect way to start implementing this essential oil into your daily routine. Whether you want calm energy to start the day or a way to breathe easier, eucalyptus can help.


Similarly, refreshing peppermint is another great option for clearing out blockage in your airways and sinuses. The inability to take deep, full breaths is a common problem among many adults and even children, especially in the springtime when allergens are in full effect.

Peppermint is also known for reducing and soothing headaches when applied topically to the painful areas. Reducing headache pain will allow you to feel calmer and more relaxed before bedtime.

Our Mint Marble Bar allows you to breathe in soothing peppermint while taking a shower or soothing bath.
