DIY: Bubble Bath
Bubble bath is great to use for all ages! However, most commercial bubble baths are full of artificial chemicals and fragrances and can be irritating to your skin. Making your own bubble bath out of essential oils is a great way to reduce chemicals in your home while still enjoying the fun and relaxing elements of a bubble bath. This bubble bath is gentle on your skin and can be customized with your favorite essential oil. Use Lavender or Serenity for relaxing benefits or Citrus Bliss or Peppermint to help wake you up.
1 cup unscented castile soap
1/2 cup vegetable glycerin
2 tablespoons water
15 drops of your favorite essential oil
Note: Castile soap and vegetable glycerin can be purchased at your local health food store.
- Combine castile soap, glycerin, and water into glass bowl.
- Add essential oils.
- Stir until well combined.
- Pour into glass container. To use, add 1/4-1/2 cup of 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 make them. However, this chemical-free bath will provide enough bubbles for a relaxing and therapeutic bath you will still enjoy.
