Today I finally forced myself to get out and attack the weeds in my vegetable and flower gardens. I love to garden. I hate weeding. But after all was said and done, I was quite pleased with the results and decided I had earned a long, hot soak!
Everyone deserves a long, hot bath every once in a while…especially one that smells incredible and leaves your skin soft and moisturized. That’s where my new favorite DIY bath product comes in! This Eucalyptus Mint Bath Oil is wonderful for easing muscle fatigue and is my new bath time ritual!
Eucalyptus Mint Bath Oil
- 2-3 ounces of carrier oil (see options below)
- 10 drops Peppermint essential oil
- 20 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
The first ingredient in the bath oil is your carrier oil of choice. I happened to have some almond oil on hand so I used that, but some other great options would be fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, avocado oil, or even olive oil. Put 2-3 ounces of your carrier oil in a small bottle or container.
Next, add the Peppermint and Eucalyptus essential oils. The scent of Peppermint can pretty quickly overpower other scents, so I added twice as much Eucalyptus as I did Peppermint to balance it out. (If you’d like to try out a custom combination of EO’s in your bath oil, just make sure the total of drops you add comes out to around 30 or so.)
Once you’ve added the essential oil, place the cap on the bottle and gently shake to combine. Separation will occur, so just give it a shake before each use. Add a tablespoon of the bath oil while you’re filling up your tub for a relaxing and rejuvenating bath experience!
