6 Easy DIY Bath Recipes

How to make 6 easy DIY bath recipes with the Simply Earth Essential Oils Recipe Box.  This has 6 recipes that are easy to make at home for a milk bath, shower steamer, bath salts, roller blend, and diffuser blend.


Simply Earth sent me the November 2019 Essential Oils Recipe Box.  It's a monthly subscription box with goodies to make 6 natural recipes each month.  

Each month there's a theme.  I've made DIY cleaners, DIY bath and body, roll ons, diffuser blends, and even stuff for pets and kids.  This months theme is DIY bath recipes.



When you subscribe to the monthly box, you get four bottles of essential oils or blends, pretty sticker labels, recipe cards, and supplies to make 6 natural recipes at home.  

If you use my code EVERYTHINGPRETTYFREE to sign up, you also get a free bonus box with small bottles for blends, roller bottles, and carrier oils to make your next six boxes.  You'll also get a $40 gift card to use on a future purchase.  You can use it for your next box or to stock up on essential oils.

6 Easy DIY Bath Recipes


The November 2019 Simply Earth Recipe Box is all about DIY bath products.



In the box, you'll get:


These are the DIY bath recipes that are included in the November box.  A * indicates that the item is not included in the box or in the bonus box.

Oatmeal and Milk Bath


This moisturizing milk bath is easy to make.  The oatmeal soothes irritated skin, and the baking soda and powdered whole milk moisturize.



Ingredients

Directions


Mix the milk powder, ground oats, baking soda, and the contents of the tea bag together.  Add the essential oils and stir well.

Pour it into the bath as its filling.

If you like milk baths, try my hot chocolate milk bath recipe or my lavender chamomile milk bath recipe .

Eucalyptus Shower Steamers


Use these when you have congestion in your chest or nasal congestion.  Do not use this as a bath bomb because the concentration of essential oils is too high.



Ingredients


Directions


Heat the coconut oil until just melted.  Add the essential oils.  Pour over the baking soda and stir until it's crumbly.   It should just stick together and will be crumbly.  Press it into an ice cube tray or something similar.  Let dry for 24 hours.  Place one shower steamer on the bottom of the shower away from where the water will hit it directly.

Try my bedtime shower melt without citric acid, cold and flu shower steamers, or my wake up shower melts recipe.   

Lavender Buds and Tranquility Milk Bath


This is another fun milk bath recipe that would make a pretty gift.  Lavender is great for your skin and suitable for most skin types.



Ingredients


Instructions


Use a coffee grinder or blender to grind the whole milk powder and lavender buds.  Add them ot the Epsom salt and then add the essential oils.  Stir well. 

Pour into the bath while it's filling.  

Chai Tea Bath Salts


This fun recipe uses real spices and tea for a wonderfully smelling bath.



Ingredients


  • 1/4 cup Epsom salt*
  • 1/4 cup ground oatmeal*
  • 1 teaspoon clove spice*
  • 1 tablespoon Anise star spice*
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken into pieces*
  • 1 teaspoon almond oil
  • 1 tea bag (I used green tea)
  • 2 drops Cinnamon essential oil

Directions


Combine the Epsom salt, oatmeal, clove, Anise star, broken cinnamon stick, and tea in a blender or coffee grinder.  Process until fine.  

Combine the almond oil and the essential oil.  Add the finely processed dry ingredients and stir well.  Pour into the tea bag and tie closed.  

Place the tea bag in the bath to let it steep.

Try my lavender chamomile tub tea or my pumpkin spice chai tea bath salts.

Tranquility and Lime Diffuser Blend


Use the wonderfully smelling blend in your diffuser.



Ingredients


Directions


Combine the essential oils in your diffuser.  You can also add 50 drops of each oil to a small bottle from your bonus box to create a master blend.  Use 1-3 drops of the master blend in a diffuser.

Lime and Eucalyptus Roll On


This is an uplifting blend that doubles as natural congestion relief.



Ingredients


Directions


Add the essential oils to the roller bottle.  Fill with fractionated coconut oil.  Apply to pulse points for congestion relief, energy, and an uplifting aroma.

If you use my code, you get a free bonus box plus a $40 gift card for a future purchase!  The last several months have sold out, so order early!
