Best Essential Oils for Bath Bombs
If you’re wanting to make a spa-like relaxing bath experience, I recommend using the following essential oils:
- Lavender – this one is my favorite go-to because lavender is great for relaxation, stress relief, and sleep.
- Roman Chamomile – chamomile is sweet, floral, and soothing while promoting relaxation.
- Serenity – a proprietary blend of ylang ylang, roman chamomile, lavender, and lavender provides a relaxing and renewing experience.
Congested, sore, or achy? Here are the best essential oils to try in bath bombs when you’re not feeling your best:
- Eucalyptus – may promote feelings of clear breathing and feelings of relaxation.
- Peppermint – peppermint essential oil might be helpful when you’re feeling tired or have an upset stomach. (NOTE: peppermint essential oil is not considered safe to use around children under the age of 3)
- Tea Tree – tea tree oil is best known for its purifying properties, which can be cleansing and purifying to the skin and nails.
Bath bombs aren’t just for girls! If you have a man in your life who enjoys a relaxing bath, here are some essential oils that are a bit more musky and masculine:
- Sandalwood – this essential oil smells woody, rich, and sweet.
- Cedarwood – this is also woody, relaxing, and calming. It’s a grounding essential oil that is great for unwinding before bed.
- Vetiver – vetiver is a member of the grass family and provides an earthy, grounding aroma.
How to use Essential Oils in Bath Bombs
The amount of EOs you use in your homemade bath bombs will vary, depending on how many you’re making. But as a rule of thumb, I will use 10 drops of essential oils for every 2 cups of bath bomb mix.
