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 the smell 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 quickly.

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.
