Make Your Own Bubble Bath

March 17th, 2007

By Abigail Beal (PioneerThinking.com)

Indulge yourself and make your own bubble bath. Wouldn�t it be nice to relax into a bubble bath that you�d created? Making bubble bath is simple & fun. They can also make wonderful gifts for friends and loved ones for the holidays or other special occasions.

The ingredients used to make bubble bath can be found in most large grocery stores or health food stores. You can also find all of the ingredients online. They are inexpensive.

One of the benefits of making your own bubble bath is that you know exactly what is in it. If you are allergic to anything, you can be certain it is not in your bubble bath.

Another benefit to making your own bubble bath is that you know all of the ingredients are fresh and natural. There is no concern about a product that was left on the shelf for months. Another benefit is that you can be certain that your product is environmentally conscious and that it does not promote animal testing.

Bubble bath is a wonderful inexpensive way to treat yourself. Supplies are easy to find and you can create a bubble bath suited exactly to your personal tastes and needs.

An important ingredient in bubble bath is Essential Oil. Essential Oils add the scent to your bubble bath. Use these sparingly, as you only need to use several drops to get a pleasant effect. Many Essential Oils should not be ingested orally, so be sure to read the directions. There are also some Essential Oils such as Marjoram that should never be used by Pregnant women. You can research any Essential Oil at the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy www.naha.org. Also look in aromatherapy books and ask questions at the health food store when buying Essential Oils.

Some Essential Oils are known to be relaxing and soothing. The most popular include Lavender, Sandalwood, Marjoram, Frankincense, Myrrh, Rosewood and Chamomile. These Essential Oils will calm you down, relax you and help you go to sleep.

Other Essential Oils will uplift and energize you. Peppermint, Spearmint, Eucalyptus and Lemon oil are all oils that will brighten your day and are good to use during the day. Eucalyptus oil is especially good if you have a cold because it will break up your cold�s congestion.

To soften your skin, consider adding either coconut or Almond oil to your bubble bath concoctions. Coconut oil has a wonderful nutty and floral fragrance to it. Almond oil is virtually unscented. Adding a half a cup of either Almond oil or coconut oil to your bubble bath will soften your skin tremendously. This is a great addition for your bubble baths for the winter months.

Store your bubble baths in a nonbreakable container. The materials you use to make bubble baths can �keep� for awhile. You can store your bubble bath on a shelf in your bathroom or bedroom for easy access.

Personalized bubble baths make an excellent gift. You can find many decorative plastic containers at your local art store. For decorative effect you can add either marbles or seashells to the bottom of the container. If you are giving bubble bath to a child or teenager, consider adding a small amount of glitter. Do not add food coloring because it can stain people temporarily. Tie your container with a pretty bow or even a piece of tulle.

When giving bubble bath as a gift, consider adding some other bath related items. Give bath mitts or a big yellow rubber duck. Your friend or loved one will appreciate such a thoughtful and personalized gift.

Whether you are making your bubble bath for yourself or for someone special � your bubble bath is really a treat to enjoy. Here are some recipes for bubble baths to inspire you and to get your started:

Homemade Mouthwash

March 17th, 2007
  • 4 oz. Water
  • 4 oz. Vodka (vodka may be substituted for water OR a pure Rosemary tea infusion)
  • 4 teaspoons Liquid Glycerine (available at many drug stores), optional - simply sweetens the mouthwash
  • 10-12 drops Peppermint or Spearmint Essential Oil
  • 5 drops Myrrh (optional - Myrrh can assist in mouth and gum care)

Notes: This recipe makes a rather minty mouthwash but as it contains no added flavorings, it is not as sweet or strong as commercially available mouthwashes.

Boil the water and vodka then add the glycerine. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Add the Essential Oils and let cool for 1/2 hour and bottle. I like to bottle the mouthwash in a clear plastic bottle that has a flip top to make it easy to pour the mouthwash into a small dixie cup for use.
