Essential Oil Bubble Bath
I know this time is very stressful for a lot of us, but I don’t want you to forget to still take time for yourself. Here is a recipe for an Essential Oil Bubble Bath, that is completely customizable. So get your favorite Essential Oil or Oils and take some guilt free time for Y-O-U.
1 cup unscented castile soap
½ cup vegetable glycerin
2 tablespoons water
15 drops preferred doTERRA essential oil
Combine castile soap, glycerin (optional), and water into a glass bowl.
Add essential oils.
Stir until well combined.
Pour into a glass container.
To use, add ¼–½ cup of the essential oil bubble bath mixture to warm, running bathwater.
Note: These bubbles are not going to provide big fluffy bubbles that last a long time since it doesn’t contain the synthetic ingredients that create high amounts of lather or foam. However, this chemical-free bath will provide enough bubbles for a relaxing and therapeutic bath you will enjoy even more.
