Hello my lovelies!
In my September/October Empties Video, I mentioned that lately I have been obsessed with bath oils! I find it is so much better for my skin than using bubble bath or other soaps in the water. Putting a bit of oil in your bath works as a total body moisturizer, which is perfect to battle dry skin during the colder winter months! I have tried some pre-made oils (which you saw in my September/October Empties video), but I didn’t like some of the ingredients and they were so expensive! So, I made this DIY version that works just as well and can be made using ingredients that you probably already have at home. It is super easy and quick to make – you can make a large batch in under 10 minutes! 🙂
What you need:
– Olive oil
– Coconut oil
– An essential oil of your choice (I am using an aromatherapy blend!)
– Vitamin E oil (optional)
– An empty container
Fill the container slightly under halfway with olive oil.
Fill the rest of the container with coconut oil, leaving a small space at the top (enough for about another 1/2 tsp of liquid).
Add in 4-5 drops of your essential oil of choice. I am using the Focus Plantlife 100% Pure Essential Oil Blend. This is a great calming aromatherapy scent which uses basil, clove, eucalyptus, black pepper and rosemary.
Step 4 :
This step is optional. I like to add in 4-5 drops of 100% pure Vitamin E oil as well. Not only is Vitamin E oil great for your skin, it also acts as a preservative for this recipe so that your bath oils will last longer.
Step 5 :
To finish off, securely replace the top of your container and shake well to combine. Your bath oil is ready to use! Add 1 or 2 tsps into your bath water, sit back and enjoy the feeling of soft skin!
I really hope that you enjoy this super easy DIY recipe. I have been so obsessed with using bath oils recently, especially now that the weather is getting colder and my skin is starting to feel dry. I also love being able to choose my own scents and experiment with adding different types of essential oil. This recipe can change so much depending on which type you choose to add in Step 3! Make sure to let me know what you think if you try it yourself – I would love to hear what essential oils and scents you choose.
See you all next week!
