Basic Oil Bath

Use 1-2 oz. of plain carrier per bath

Add oil to bathwater prior to immersion. Some good choices are coconut, olive, sesame or jojoba oil.

Basic Bath Oil Blend

This is a well-balanced oil blend for most skin types. It is nourishing and soothing and it is not too heavy or light. It provides an excellent base for the Aromatherapy Bath Oils that follow. This oil blend may also be used directly on the skin.

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 oz. olive oil

3 oz. almond oil

1 oz. sesame oil

1 oz. canola oil

1/2 oz. wheat germ oil

Pour oils in a jar, cap with a tight fitting lid and shake well. Add 1 oz. oil per bath. Makes 7 oz.

Basic Aromatherapy Bath Oil

You can create a wide assortment of aromatherapy oils for the bath by adding essential oils to the Basic Bath Oil Blend just described, or to any other carrier oil of your choice. These oils can also be used for massage. Use 1-2 teaspoons of Aromatherapy Bath Oil per bath. Note that the concentrated essential oils make the carrier oil stronger, so less oil is needed for the bath.

INGREDIENTS

15-30 drops essential oil of choice

1 oz. Basic Bath Oil Blend or other carrier oil of choice

Fill small-mouth jar with carrier oil, leaving 1/8 inch of space at the top. Add the essential oils drop by drop, cap the jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake well. Use 1-2 teaspoons of oil per bath.
