Aromatherapy Bubble Baths to Heal the Spirit

Aromatherapy Bubble Baths to Heal the Spirit

What better way to soothe your spirit and relax your body than with a bubble bath infused with just the right essential oil to help you in the moment? Here is a safe formula for a homemade bubble bath. You may add an relaxing essential oil such as chamomile or lavendar, or an uplifting essential oil such as lemon grass or ginger.

Bubble Bath Mix for One Bath
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2-3 drops essential oil

Bubble Bath Mix in Bulk Quantity
1 cup baking soda
1 cup cream of tartar
1/4 cup cornstarch
Up to 5 drops essential oil per bath (optional)

Combine the baking soda, cream of tartar, and cornstarch in a jar. Use a few tablespoons per bath. Add the essential oil at the time of the bath; otherwise the baking soda will neutralize the scent during storage.
