Rub-A-Dub-Dub, Having Fun In The Tub

Rose Bath Oil Recipe

You will need:
2 ounces of olive oil OR carrier oil of your choice (sweet almond, grapeseed, etc.)
1/2 - 2/3 ounce dried rose petals
5 drops red liquid food coloring (optional)
crock-pot (slow cooker)
unbleached muslin OR muslin drawstring bag

The easiest way to make an infused bath oil is by the use of a crock pot with a very low heat setting. Since the infused oil must be gently heated, it is essential that your crock pot does not overheat the oil. Add 2 ounces of your chosen carrier oil and 1/2 - 2/3 ounce of dried herbs to your crock pot and stir well. Turn your crock pot to the lowest heat setting. Allow to heat on the lowest setting for two hours, stirring every 10-15 minutes (setting a timer to remind you to stir is important). After two hours, carefully strain the oil by using unbleached muslin (usually available at fabric stores). You should strain the oil at least twice. If any herbs remain in the infused oil, the oil can go rancid. Store the infused bath oil in an amber or cobalt glass bottle.

Notes: If you use fresh herbs, double the amount of herbs used. Do not use a crock pot that only has one heat setting as that crock pot most likely will overheat the oils. Do not use all 2 ounces of bath oil in one bath.

If you have a tub with jets, make sure to only add A LITTLE bubble bath because the jets will make the bubbles multiply rapidly!
