We’ve all had that moment when we sink into our tub and immediately imagine how great it would be to make it smell better than it already does. But do you really want to pay $20 per bottle for scented bath oils? Here are two different DIY Bath Oil recipes to help you experience affordable luxury naturally making your time in the tub feel amazing!

3 Ingredients for Luxuriousness

1. One cup of olive oil. 2. A tablespoon of baking soda. 3. Six drops of any essential oil you like (try jasmine for a floral fragrance or lemon for a fresh scent).

2. Mix the ingredients together until well blended and store in an airtight container or jar with a tight-fitting lid when not in use so it doesn’t spoil before you can use it all up!

3. You can also substitute this recipe with one cup of coconut oil if you prefer that over olive oil.

4. You'll have to experiment with the measurements on how much baking soda to add depending on what type of oil you're using.

5 Steps to Luxurious Soaking

1. Fill a small saucepan with water and add about 20 drops of any essential oils you like. The more fragrance you want, the more you should use.

2. Bring the mixture to a simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes.

3. Carefully transfer the mixture into an empty bottle or jar that has been filled with hot tap water (to warm it up).

4. Add 1/8 cup of vegetable glycerin to give your bubbles some oomph. Shake vigorously to mix.

5. Transfer mixture back into pot and let cool completely before filling container. If you plan on giving this as a gift, include instructions for how often to refill the container and shake well before each use! You can also include a note of ingredients used if desired. You can reuse old containers for making body lotions and face creams, or re-purpose items such as mason jars by adding cute labels. There's so many fun ways to personalize these DIYs!

6. When creating homemade products, be sure to do a patch test before applying them directly onto skin.

Making your own scented oils is an affordable way to combat stress and anxiety. It’s the perfect bath time companion for yourself or a gift for a loved one.
