Soothe away the cares of the day with a relaxing bath oil that evokes the feeling of a refreshing walk through the forest. In honour of winter, we used pine, cedarwood and spruce essential oils, which give this bath oil a warm and woody aroma.  We chose lavender essential oil to round out the scent because of its calming qualities. For a more refreshing effect, replace the lavender essential oil with 5 drops eucalyptus essential oil, or the same amount of lemon essential oil if you prefer a revitalising note. Castor oil and vitamin E oil provide nourishment for the skin and have anti-inflammatory properties. And don’t forget to download the printable labels that we created for gift giving at the end of the post.

Relaxing Bath Oil

Almond, jojoba, apricot kernel, and grape seed oil are all possible carrier or base oils. We chose jojoba oil as it is moisturising and suitable for all skin types. Sweet almond oil may not be suitable for people with nut allergies.

Materials

For the bath oil

  • 125 ml (1/2 cup / 4 fl oz) carrier oil (e.g. sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, grapeseed oil)
  • 2 tsp castor oil
  • 2 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 20 drops pine essential oil
  • 10 drops cedarwood essential oil
  • 10 drops spruce essential oil
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil
  • fresh lavender stalks or rosemary twigs (optional)

 

For gift giving

  • glass jars or bottles
  • printable labels (download below)

Instructions

1) Mix the bath oil

Fill the carrier oil, castor oil, vitamin E oil, and essential oils into a jar, bottle, or salad dressing shaker. Screw the lid on tightly and shake vigorously until well blended. Fill into a jar and optionally insert lavender stalks or rosemary twigs.

 

2) How to use the relaxing bath oil

Fill the bathtub with warm water. A water temperature of 37°C (98°F) is ideal. Add 2 – 3 tablespoons bath oil and swirl with your hands until fully diluted.

 

3) Storage and shelf life

Store the bath oil in a cool and dark place for up to 6 months.

Print the gift labels

We recommend printing the labels on self-adhesive vinyl sheets. Vinyl sheets are water-resistant and will ensure the label stays pretty, and the colours don’t come off when exposed to water or humidity. Vinyl sheets can be found in printing shops or online. They are available for inkjet as well as for laser printers and can be used in the same way as regular printing paper. We used Photo Paper Direct’s A4 Inkjet Creative Vinyl Stickers Matt to print our labels. The labels come in different size giving you many options when choosing a bottle or jar.
