10 Exciting Essential Oil Bath Recipes
1. Detox Bath Salts Recipe
In one or two large ball mason jars, add 1 cup each of Himalayan pink salt, dead sea salt and Epsom salt grains. Stir in 4 tsp of fractionated coconut oil, 15 drops of clary sage essential oil and 15 drops of lemongrass essential oil. To use, add ¼ to ½ a cup of bath salts to running bath water. Mix well and allow the salt grains to disperse and dissolve before hopping in. Enjoy soaking in the detox bath for 25 to 30 minutes to purify your skin and revitalize your whole system.
2. Super Moisturizing Bath Oil for Winter Skin
In an amber glass bottle, mix 2 ounces of jojoba oil, 10 drops of lavender essential oil and 10 drops of geranium essential oil. To use, add just 5 ml of the bath oil to your warm bath water, stir well and have a long soak for supple skin.
3. Forest Fairies Bath Bomb Recipe
• 10 oz baking soda
• 4 oz citric acid
• 15 drops rosemary essential oil
• 7 drops sweet orange essential oil
• 8 drops peppermint essential oil
• 4 drops cedarwood essential oil
• ¼ tsp green food color
Combine 10 oz of baking soda and 4 oz of citric acid in a bowl until well mixed. Add ¼ tsp green food color and mix until you have a consistent color all throughout the mixture. Now add the ‘forest fairies’ essential oil perfume blend for your bath bomb: 10 drops rosemary, 7 drops sweet orange, 4 drops cedarwood, 8 drops peppermint. Quickly mix until well combined. The next step is to spray water into the mixture while mixing to try to form ‘dough’. Add in just enough water while squeezing and shaping to form a ball. Don’t get it too damp but just enough to hold together. Press into molds or muffin tins. You could use a leaf shaped mold or even just an ice cube tray. Leave it to harden in the molds for about 30-60 minutes, then remove and let them dry in the open.
4. Relaxing Me-Time Bath Blend
Combine all ingredients in an amber glass bottle. Add a tbsp to bathwater, stir and soak.
5. Lavender Oatmeal Bath Bag for Skin Inflammation
In a bowl, mix all your ingredients. Then cut an 8×8 inch of cheesecloth and place all your ingredients. Tie two ends of the cheese cloth together to create a bag. Hang this bath bag over your bath faucet so that the hot water pours over the bag and turns the water milky. You can also just leave the bath bag in the bath and squeeze it when you’re getting in– the water will get milky all the same. Enjoy a soothing and calming bath to heal inflamed skin including weeping/ dry eczema and itchy psoriasis patches.
6. Sweet Dreams Bath Oil
Combine above ingredients in an amber glass bottle. Add just a tbsp of this bath oil into your warm bath, stir well and get in.
7. Romantic Rose Bath Bomb
Add the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well using clean fingers. Next, add the essential oils and stir. Don’t worry if it fizzes – this is just the essential oils reacting with the baking soda and citric acid. Gently add the carrier oil while mixing the ingredients. By this time, your mixture should be clumping together into an oval shape when you press it between your fingers. Spritz the rose hydrosol a little at a time to combine the ingredients into a ball. Press the ball into molds. Let them dry for a day or two before using.
8. Energizing Eucalyptus & Lemon Soak
Mix above ingredients in an amber glass bottle. Add a tbsp of this blend into your warm bath, stir well and get in.
9. Citrusy Bubble Bath
Add all the ingredients into a large ball mason jar. Gently mix with a chopstick then shake the bottle. Don’t shake a lot or it’ll get too bubbly and not work. Add a little of this mixture to your running bath.
10. Ginger & Clove Detox Bath Recipe
Combine the above ingredients. Add about 10 drops into a hot bath and stir with your hand to mix. Get in and to bring on a good sweat that cleanses your whole system. Soak in this bath once a month to draw out toxins.
- First check with your doctor to see if essential oils are okay to be used by you if you suffer from hypertension, skin allergies and other medical conditions.
- Always use 100% pure and high quality essential oils.
- Never use essential oils ‘neat’ onto your skin. Always dilute first with a carrier oil (1 drop of essential oil in 1 tsp of carrier oil). For more info read: How to Dilute Essential Oils
- If you are pregnant or lactating and would like to use essential oils for nail growth, please first consult your doctor as most essential oils are not safe to use for pregnancy/lactating women.
