There’s nothing like wringing in a warm, soothing bath after a long and tiring day. It leaves you fresh, rejuvenated and pleased. And if you add bath oils to the bath, it feels all the more luxurious. Bath oils are meant to be added to bath tubs and are designed specifically with a blend of oils and scents. Using bath oils regularly softens and nourishes the skin, removing all dry and rough patches since the warm water of the bath opens up the pores of your body and helps you absorb the oil. Apart from the charm of soothing fragrance, bath oils are also recommended for aromatherapy.
In addition to this, they also support the health of your immune system. For this purpose, the base of bath oils is generally made from coconut, olive, sesame, nut, jojoba or vitamin E oil while they may also consist of dried rose petals, lavender or basil.

Homemade Bath Oils
2 to 3 cups of Fresh Herbs or 4 cups of Dried Herbs – you can choose rose petals or lavender
1 cup Alcohol (vodka is the cleanest)
5 cups Sweet Almond Oil
Take a large cooking pot, enough to accommodate all the ingredients, and pour the sweet almond oil and herbs in it.
Allow the mixture to simmer on the stove for about one hour.
Now, strain the oil into a bowl.
If you wish to go for a stronger fragrance, repeat the same procedure using the strained oil potion and add more herbs to it.
Mix 4 parts oil and 1 part alcohol for about 10 seconds and then pour the mix into a bottle.
Store this bottle in a cool and dry place and use a few drops in your bath tub to spurt the fragrance.
1 cup of any Fragrant Essential oil
1 cup Alcohol (preferably vodka)
4 cups Safflower Oil or Sweet Almond Oil
