Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble – Shakespeare’s Macbeth

There’s little toil and no trouble to make an essential oils bubble bath with just a few ingredients that haven’t been affected by corona virus. And with all the stress from said virus and day-to-day life, this 10th installment of Oils & Spoils Make and Break is just the ticket for spa-like R&R at home.

Lemon & Joy Bubble Bath

1 cup Castille soap

1/2 cup Vegetable Glycerin

1 teaspoon Vitamin E

1/2 cup water

10 drops Joy essential oil blend

20 drops Lemon essential oil

Mix all ingredients in bowl and pour into glass container. Use sparingly.

A few notes on this recipe, from Essential Oil Recipes, One Drop at a Time:

  •  This recipe is very versatile. You can add endless combinations of essential oils and blends or a single essential oil, totaling 30 drops. You can also add an endless combination of dried flowers, such as the cornflower and roses I added, and other add-ons. I didn’t measure the flowers, but rather added a few pinches of cornflower and a handful of rose for looks and added scent. Heavenly!
  • Joy is a proprietary Young Living Essential Oils blend of Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Jasmine, Palmarosa, Rose, Bergamot, Lemon and Tangerine essential oils.
  • Castille soap can be used as a base for body wash, hand soap, face soap, shampoo, cleaning sprays, etc.
  • My sweet friend, Sonia, made and tried the Lemon & Joy Bubble Bath and noted it was more like an essential oils soak, with aromatherapy and moisturizing benefits, than a bubble bath. She also used quite a bit for bubbles that faded fast.

Whether a recipe is a make or break is usually pretty clear. I think this one might be a draw, a true Make and Break. Make: an easy essential oils bath recipe with aromatherapy and moisturizing benefits. Break: the bubble part of bubble bath. Where’s the bubbles?!
