Bath Oils, Salts & Bottles


1/4oz to 1oz essential oil
1 qt. (32oz) carrier oil (Sweet Almond is the most used)
Just mix in a bottle & shake before using.
This can also be used as a body or massage oil
--use the lower amount for this since it won't be diluted in water.

5lbs. sea salt
1oz vegetable glycerin
1/2oz essential or fragrance oils
food coloring (optional)

Combine glycerin, scent & coloring. Pour into the sea salt in a jar and turn to mix.
Fill containers--apothecary jars, etc. and scoop out with a seashell.: Michaels carries
a variety of jars & bottles. It would be less expensive to buy them locally
as opposed to mail order where you pay the shipping.:


Salt: equal parts of Sea or Table salt or Rock Salt (water softner),
BaKing soda and Epson salt.

Blend in a glass jar or bowl.

To mix the scents and colours, mix the clours (food colouring is fine)
in a seperated spoon or small dish before blending with the base.

Add the oils a drop at a time, mixing after each oil is added, until thesmell is "right".

Here is my formula for this potion. It is made with all essential oils and
cold pressed base oils.

Sea salt bath:

9 oz. sea salt
4 drops thyme
4 drops tea tree
2 drops eucalyptus
6 drops lemon
4 drops clove.

Mix these oils in a very small bottle so you get that synergistic blend.
Add them to the salt and blend very well. I put it in a plastic bag and work
the living heck out of it. This bath will make approximately 4 baths. Soak a
minimum of 20 minutes or more. When you start to sweat, exit the tub as the
oils have done their work. It will also increase your heartbeat.

Massage oil (My favorite)

1 0z jojaba oil $60.oo a gallon now don't swallow your tongue! It's not
really necessary if you will be using the oil in a small matter of time.
Jojoba is a carrier oil that helps the other carriers from going stale too

1 1/2 oz cold pressed canola oil (don't know if regular canola oil is cold
pressed but may be worth a try.
In a small bottle blend these oils to get that synergistic blend.
6 d thyme
6 d tea tree
4 d eucalyptus
8 d lemon
6 d clove

Add this to the base oils. Blend by turning the bottle, etc around or turn
upside down several times to blend it. Instructions say not to just shake it
to blend.
You may add this to your bath water, 3 or 4 drops at a time, also put it in
a crock pot to inhale the modules that it releases into the air.
Massge your chest, it feels great and doesn't stay greasy. I also use it in
a can of water on the kerosene heater.

Here's a nice recipe for scented bath salts that will leave your skin silky.
2 cups epson salts
1 cup sea salt
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 teaspoon glycerine
food coloring
10 - 12 drops essential oils

Mix the salts and baking soda.
Add the glycerine and food coloring.
You may have to "mash" the coloring and glycerine against the sides of the bowl as these are liquid. Once you have the desired color add the essential oil and stir well. Store in an airtight container.

This is a recipe I use that helps me sleep at night. 6 drops of lavender essential oil, 3 drops of clary sage, and 3 drops of chamomile.

Here's another I use when I'm feeling a little on the tense side. 6 drops of spearmint essential oil, 3 drops of clary sage and 1 drop of eucalyptus. Enjoy!
