Three Luxurious Bath Oils to Make Yourself

Sugar and Pith, make your own luxurious bath oils, three decorative bottles of bath oils with wax sealed corks and pretty tags
Bath oils are a great way to boost low winter spirits and add extra moisturizer to your skin during the cold wet months of winter. They’re easy to make yourself and are wonderful luxurious gifts to give to others. I’m presenting three different blends for you to try. All of them use jojoba as the base oil because it’s an oil that works well with most skin types. Jojoba is a great moisturizer and absorbs well. You need to use a base oil with most essential oils but what percentage of base oils to essential oils to use depends on how you’re using the blend.

Rose, Sandalwood, and Jojoba Bath Oil

This blend is the most luxurious of all three because the rose absolute and sandalwood are precious oils that are very costly. It’s a heavenly sensual blend and one of my favorites.

30 ml jojoba oil
7 ml rose absolute|
7 ml sandalwood

In a tiny measuring cup or shot glass with milliliter measurements printed on the side.  Mix the oils together and stir them well. Let them sit for a while and then stir again. If you’re using a Boston round to keep your blends in you can mix the oils by shaking the bottle vigorously several times. But if you’re going to put them in the small decorative bottles shown above you won’t be able to shake the oils well once you’ve filled them.

Pour the oils into your chosen bottle. This batch of oil is good for 2 baths.

Jasmine and Jojoba Bath Oil

This bath oil blend is wonderfully floral and warm. The tropical scent will warm you up and make your forget rain and snow for a little while.

40 ml jojoba oil
5 ml jasmine absolute

In a tiny measuring cup or shot glass with milliliter measurements printed on the side.  Mix the oils together and stir them well. Let them sit for a while and then stir again. If you’re using a Boston round to keep your blends in you can mix the oils by shaking the bottle vigorously several times. But if you’re going to put them in the small decorative bottles shown above you won’t be able to shake the oils well once you’ve filled them.

Pour the oils into your chosen bottle. This batch of oil is good for 2 baths.

Vetiver, Bergamot, and Jojoba Bath Oil

This blend is perfect for people who don’t like floral scents. Vetiver is a woodsy, smoky, sexy, earthy scent. Adding bergamot to vetiver brightens and vitalizes it. Bergamot is great for lifting and brightening your mood.

40 ml jojoba oil
5 ml vetiver
5 ml bergamot

In a tiny measuring cup or shot glass with milliliter measurements printed on the side.  Mix the oils together and stir them well. Let them sit for a while and then stir again.

Package Your Bath Oils Beautifully

There are so many ways you can package your bath oils to present as gifts. I encourage you to let your imagination guide you. But if you like how I’ve packaged mine, feel free to do the same. Here are the supplies you will need (click on bold items for links):

Small decorative bottles

Bottle Sealing Wax

Decorative paper (I found William Morris prints online and printed them onto card stock)

Glass (or other) glitter

Thread (if you don’t have any already, you can get some at any craft store)

Fill your bottles with the oils. Note that the bottles I used are all between 1.25 oz and 1.5 oz so you may have a little extra of some of these oil blends.

Cut your decorative paper (preferably a card stock weight, but use what you have!) into 1.25″ squares. You can also just wing it. Put a thin line of glue around the edges of each square and sprinkle glitter on. Let it dry. Then write what blend you’ve used on the back.

Punch a small hole in the top corner of your label. Cut a little over double the length you want your label to hang. Lordy, I don’t know how to describe how I knotted my thread – hopefully the above picture can guide you.

Fill a small jam jar a quarter of the way up with your wax sealing pellets. Set it in a small sauce pot of simmering water until the wax melts fully. Keep an eye on it, you may need to add more water before the wax is fully melted.

Put the tops of your thread into the opening of the bottles and push the cork in as tight as you can without making it flush with the opening. Holding the label to the side of the jar, dip the cork and the lip of the bottle in the wax a couple of times. This will prevent the cork from popping out and spilling the oil before it’s ready to be used.
