Natural Bath Oil

Is your skin dry, but you’ve tried products over the counter that didn’t work? Go natural with homemade bath oil. First you will need a bottle with a cork top or a mason jar with a lid will do. Measure
how much water your bottle or jar will hold. Toss out the water.

Ingredients: dried flowers and lavender, either olive or grape seed oil, 8 capsules of Vitamin E, and essential oil.

Depending on how much your container will hold will determine how much olive or grape seed oil you require. Pour the amount of oil into a measuring cup with a spouted end. Cut the capsules of Vitamin E in half and squeeze out the liquid into your oil. Add 25-30 drops of whatever scent you want of essential oil. Lavender is a calming scent and smells good. Peppermint is invigorating and fresh. Crumble the dried flowers in the bottom of your bottle or jar first, then pour your oil mixture in. The flowers will float and give your oil a nice look. They also help scent your bath. They are optional. If you don’t want them in your bath, use a strainer as you pour the oil.
