Peppermint essential oil is the first oil we ever tried.  And now it is a staple in our home.
It works great for headaches!

    1. I recommend sprinkling some in the bath water to your personal liking...start with approximately 1/4 cup. Enjoy!

  4. My daughters would love this - they love peppermint bath products!! So would this be the same ratio if one wanted to use Lavender Oil instead of Peppermint? I love my lavender!!

    1. This is what I consider my 'base recipe'... I have used more peppermint oil, so yes you could use more lavender or any other oils that you like. The ingredients are inexpensive and it's so easy to make that you can play around with it. Happy soaking ;-)

  7. Lori, I can't wait to try these. I got a box of oils over the Christmas holiday so I could start making more natural cleaning supplies. I didn't know you could put them in the bathtub too. So cool. I'm definitely read for a soak. Hugs, CoCo
