2 ounces of carrier oil of your choice (sweet almond, grapeseed, olive, etc.)
5 drops Grapefruit essential oil
5 drops Lemon essential oil
5 drops Lime essential oil
5 drops Orange essential oil
5 drops Tangerine essential oil
liquid food coloring (optional)
Blend the oils together and store in an amber or cobalt glass bottle. After you have drawn your bathwater, add about 1/4 ounce (7-8ml) of the bath oil blend to your bath water.
Notes: Do not use all 2 ounces of bath oil in one bath.
1 ounce white beeswax
7 tablespoons light mineral oil
1 1/2 teaspoons borax
2 tablespoons rose water
2 tablespoons fresh cucumber juice (see Special Recipes)
Make cucumber juice beforehand. Grate wax and heat it with oil in a double boiler until well blended. At the same time, dissolve borax in rose water and heat to near boiling. Remove both pots from heat at the same time, and while stirring constantly, add water solution slowly to blended oil and wax. When combined, beat vigorously until cool. Add cucumber juice. Beat and put into jars.
