Homemade Bubble Bath Recipe

Last week I shared my lavender mint bubble bath recipe and printable labels. This week, I’m sharing my traditional winter mint recipe.  I found the bottles at Home Goods and TJ Maxx and thought they were beautiful for gifting and a perfect compliment to the bubble bath itself.

To fill each, I used:
1/3 c liquid glycerin
1/2 c unscented dish soap
essential oil to preference {I used spearmint, my favorite!}

*1 tsp salt {optional}

Mix gently and add to your container.

    This is a fantastic idea. I was just wondering though if you wanted to do other scents, what would be the ratio or measurements if you wanted to mix, so for example if I wanted to do a warm winter bubble bath with cinnamon and orange? Or generally other scents etc for different occasions?

      You can do it with any essential oil…and truly, how many drops you use is your choice. Have fun with it and let me know what your favorite combination is! Enjoy!

      I didn’t include a printable for this particular bath recipe because everyone’s bottles may vary, however, I have several recipes I have provided complimentary printables on that are great for gifting! http://julieblanner.com/category/bath/

      Hope you have a beautiful week!

    Thanks for such a lovely and useful post! I tried your recipe, and it is perfect. Just curious- what is the purpose of the salt?

      Honestly Dinah, I don’t know! It was from an 80’s recipe book I had & I decided not to question it. Maybe to soften the skin or to settle the suds?

      The salt restores viscosity that was lost by watering the hand dish detergent, and also helps preserve the solution after the preservatives in the detergent liquid are diluted by the water in the bottle.
