Have you ever wanted to make your own bath oils specific to your skin type? Here we have two natural bath oil recipes: One for dry skin, & one for oily skin.
This particular blend of essential oils is said to help with dry skin and skin repair.
DRY SKIN BATH OIL
4 drops chamomile essential oil
4 drops palmarosa essential oil
2 drops patchouli essential oil
1 drop lavender essential oil
Blend the essential oils in one teaspoon of vegetable oil. If you don’t have luxury oils, canola or olive oil straight from the kitchen cabinet will do. Run bath water and drop your bath oil blend in, swishing around the water before getting into the tub. Spots of the bath oil with float on the water. Pick them up wherever you can and massage into the skin on the driest areas. Caution, will make tub a little slippery.
OILY SKIN BATH OIL
This blend relies on essential oils that help with oily skin.
4 drops lemon essential oil
5 drops ylang-ylang essential oil
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon milk or cream
When dealing with oily skin, we don’t want to use too much oil in the bath. So, unlike the dry skin bath oil above, we’re going to use 1/2 teaspoon olive oil (or oil of your choice, grapeseed is good) and blend it and the essential oils with a tablespoon of milk or cream. Agitate the bath water before getting in.
