Easy Lavender Bubble Bath Recipe


You can use relaxing lavender aromatherapy oil to make an indulgent but inexpensive bubble bath. Here's how:

Lavender Bubble Bath Recipe


1-1/2 cups of water
3/4 cup unscented shampoo (an inexpensive shampoo works fine)
3/4 tsp. salt
15 to 20 drops of lavender oil
red and blue food coloring (optional)

Combine all ingredients but food coloring and blend well.

Combine food coloring in a separate container until you achieve a tint you like, and then add it to the bubble bath mixture; blend until completely incorporated.

Pour bubble bath into a decorative bottle with a tight fitting lid.

Add sparingly to your bathwater until you find a concentration you like, start with about 2 to 4 tablespoons (enough to fill the palm of your hand. Oh, and bubble bath can be slippery, so be careful.

This also makes a great gift, particularly around the holidays.

  1. This things can be quite slippery on the tub. I really like lavender on bath salts and this ingredient is kinda unique since you incorpated shampoo to it to add the bubbly effect.
