Soaking oneself in a luxurious bath filled with aromatic oils and herbs can be a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Fortunately you don’t have to go to a fancy hotel or enlist for a spa package to enjoy it. You can create an enticing bath right in your own home by putting together some basic bath oil recipes. Here are 7 ways to create an interesting bath.

1 Almond Bath

This simple and luxurious concoction is ideal for those who enjoy the intoxicating scent of almonds. All you need is 4 ounces of almond oil and a few drops of your favorite perfume. Mix them in a jar and leave it over night. When you are ready to soak in this concoction, drop a couple of teaspoons into your bath water and soak in the natural oils as they circle around you.

2 Aromatic Bath

Preparing an aromatic bath requires understanding which essential oils appeal to you. There are quite a few – like lavender, rose, lemon, yarrow and citrus. Take about 10 drops of your favorite aromatic oil and combine it with 2 teaspoons of plain vegetable oil. Mix it well in a covered jar and set-aside until ready for use. The aromatic fragrances of the essential oils will intoxicate your senses as you soak in the luxurious bath water.

Empty the contents of the capsules into a mixing bowl and then add a few drops of the aromatic oil. You can also include some castor oil and sunflower oil. Keep mixing it for a week after which you are ready to use it.

6 Glycerin and Olive Oil Bath Oil

A glycerin inspired bath is ideal during winter months when you are constantly plagued with dry skin. Add 2 tablespoons of glycerin to 2 tablespoons of olive oil. A couple of drops of your favorite aromatic oils can add fragrance and voila you have superlative bath oil.

7 Dry Skin Control Bath Oil

Take 6 tablespoons of dried chamomile and combine it with 5 tablespoons of your favorite moisturizing soap. In a separate bowl, mix your favorite aromatic oil with a cup of boiling water. Combine the two and you will have a foamy and moisturizing bath oil.
