With cooler weather around us (I got 8 inches of snow in 2 days), a nice warm, and relaxing bath is what I enjoy on these cold evenings, or after playing in the snow.
Below are the ingredients and steps so you can make your own warm, natural based bubble bath. Enjoy!
1 cup unscented castile soap
½ cup vegetable glycerin
2 tablespoons water
15 drops preferred essential oil
Examples: Balance Blend, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Serenity Blend, or Citrus Bliss if you’d like a rejuvenating bath.
Combine castile soap, glycerin, and water into glass bowl.
Add essential oils.
Stir until well combined.
Pour into glass container.
To use, add ¼–½ cup of the essential oil bubble bath mixture to warm, running bath water.
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 the 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.
With the hustle and bustle, and all the travelling plans for the holidays. I thought I would share with you my go to Essential Oil Roller Recipe for Jet Lag.
It fits in a 10ml Roller so you can bring it with you on the plane no problem, and the size is convenient for popping in your travel bag, in the car, or wherever your travels may take you.
What You Will Need:
10ml essential oil roller
fractionated coconut oil (or another carrier oil)
Essential Oils You Will Need:
8 drops of Grapfruit
8 drops of Citrus Bliss
8 drops of Wild Orange
8 drops of Passion
Add 8 drops of each of the essential oils listed above to an empty 10ml essential oil roller bottle.
Top up with Fractionated Coconut Oil (or your preferred carrier oil) and seal the roller.
Give it a gentle shake to mix the oils and apply. You can apply the roller to the insides of your wrists, and the bottom of your feet.
Please keep in mind, with citrus oils such as these, to make sure you’re not out in the sun for an extended period of time as it can cause discoloration to where you’ve applied the oil. (i.e.) wait until after sunbathing on a tropical beach before applying the oil.
I hope this helps everyone recover from their travels and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and holiday season 🙂
This time of year can trigger some big feelings for so many people. Feeling the need to do it all, family challenges or thinking about the business of the holiday can leave you feeling overwhelmed.
Here are some of my favorite oils to recommend when you feel overwhelmed:
Past Tense – this blend soothes tension associated with overwhelm. Roll it on your neck and shoulders for relief.
Steady – the grounding blend for kids and those who prefer a more gentle impact from their oils.
Balance – the ultimate grounding blend to help you feel present minded and in your body.
Aromatouch – soothes stressed out muscles to help you stay grounded.
Serenity – can you say relaxation in a bottle? Diffuse, diffuse, diffuse!
Basil – relieves heaviness fatigue and hormonal exhaustion. Dilute a drop in your hands and rub over your heart.
Frankincense – The chemical components of Frankincense result in an extremely powerful aroma that can help to dispel negative feelings—like stress. If you are feeling like the pressures of life are weighing down your mood, apply Frankincense to the bottom of your feet. The soothing sensation and aroma will promote feelings of relaxation and a balanced mood.
