How to add Essential Oils to the Bath Safely

Essential Oils in the Bath

Some oils work nicely in bath water, some don’t. Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Rose and Cedarwood are some great options. But how do you disperse them in the bath water?

Essential oils in a bath can be very nice, but as we all know, oil and water don’t mix very well! Some people recommend mixing essential oils with a carrier oil (such as jojoba, olive oil, coconut oil etc), but I find the slip factor to be a big concern. So, another great option to dispurse the oil is by putting 3 to 5 drops in one ounce of full-fat milk, mixing well and putting that in the bath (if you are vegan coconut milk is also an amazing choice). It not only helps to disperse the oil, milk is actually very soothing for the skin (and the emotions).

This will help you avoid concentrated drops of essential oil floating on the surface of the water which could irritate sensitive body parts (and nobody wants to irritate their “sensitive” parts…).

Now that you know the essentials of adding essential oils to your bath, its time to take your soak in the tub from good to GLOR-I-OUS! Here are some of our favourite go-to combos:
