Follow my bath and body recipes to create aromatic bath salts, revitalizing body scrubs, fizzalicious bath bombs, and more. They make wonderful homemade gifts... but are so good you'll want to keep them for yourself.
If you're new to making bath products, start by reading my essential oil skin care guide. Many bath and body recipes use essential oils, and it's useful to know something about their properties and how to use them properly.
For your first ever product, I'd recommend making bath salts or body scrubs. They take only a few minutes to make, and you can find everything you need at your local supermarket and health food store. The recipes are foolproof, and I think you'll find they're quite scrumptious too.
When you feel like making something a bit more challenging, have a go at the fizzy bath bombs. You can make bombs just as nice as the ones selling at Lush or Body Shop, for a fraction of the price.
