DIY- Bubble Bath Recipe

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!

Ingredients
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.
Instructions
  1. Combine castile soap, glycerin, and water into glass bowl.
  2. Add essential oils.
  3. Stir until well combined.
  4. Pour into glass container.
  5. 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.

Combating Jet Lag- recipe

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

 

Directions:

  1. Add 8 drops of each of the essential oils listed above to an empty 10ml essential oil roller bottle.
  2. Top up with Fractionated Coconut Oil (or your preferred carrier oil) and seal the roller.
  3. 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 🙂

DIY-Creamy Orange & Peppermint Soap Bar

Creamy Orange & Peppermint Soap Bar

Ingredients

  • 3lbs organic white soap base
  • 2 tablespoons Annatto Seeds
  • 2 oz. light olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1 oz. of Orange Essential Oil
  • 1.4 oz. of Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Silicone Soap Mold (design of your choice)
  • Small spray bottle of rubbing alcohol

Directions

  • Heat your olive oil in the microwave {or on top of stove} for about 20 seconds.  Oil should be very warm but not steaming hot!
  • Place your annatto seeds into your warm oil.  Let your seeds soak overnight {or if you’re the impatient type a few hours, but the color might not be as strong}.
  • Strain the annatto seeds out of your oil and save the oil {this is your colorant}.  You can save the seeds for another use, just rinse them out and let them dry.
  • Cut 30 oz. of your organic soap base into 1/2 inch cubes.
  • Place your 30 oz. of soap in a microwavable glass measuring cup in the microwave and heat for 1 minute and 30 seconds.  If you have a few small chunks of soap left stir slowly until melted.  If your soap chunks are still large melt for 15 more seconds.
  • Add 3-4 tablespoons of your annatto seed colorant and stir slowly into soap base until well incorporated.  Don’t worry if the color looks too light, it will darken as the soap hardens.  We don’t want to add too much oil colorant because this can decrease your lather.
  • Let your soap cool.  This is very important.  Let your soap cool down to about 120 degrees, even lower is better.  It will help your essential oils behave better in your soap!  If a skin forms on top of your soap while it is cooling just stir it back into your soap or get a fork and remove it.
  • While your soap is cooling  pour 3/4 of an ounce of your orange essential oil into a small glass bowl.
  • Next add about 10-15 drops of peppermint essential oil to the same bowl.  Don’t worry if the peppermint hijacks your orange oil!  The peppermint will be stronger but will fade slightly.  This is normal.  We use the peppermint to create creaminess in the orange essential oil.
  • When you have cooled your soap add your essential oils and stir {not too vigorously, it will add bubbles {air} to your soap} until well blended.
  • Pour soap base into your mold but hold back an ounce or two of soap.  Let set for 1 hour or until the top becomes very firm.  This is your first layer of the soap.
  • After your soap has set sprinkle about a tablespoon of poppy seeds on top of your soap.  Heat the soap you held back {about 10 seconds} and pour over the poppy seeds to help them adhere to the layer of soap.
  • Cut 12 oz. of the remaining soap base and place into the microwave.  Heat for 30 seconds.  This is your top layer.  When soap has cooled down add a few drops of orange essential oil {about 10} and 1-2 drops of peppermint right into your soap base.
  • Lightly score {with a fork or small knife make a series of small lines in the soap, this lets the first layer adhere better} the first layer of your soap.  Spritz some rubbing alcohol on your first layer of soap.  Let sit 5-10 seconds and then pour the rest of your melted soap base on top of your first layer.
  • When the final layer of soap has set sprinkle your poppy seeds on top of the soap.  You can adhere the seeds by pouring a small bit of melted soap over them.
