Blueberry Week Day 1 – Blooming Blueberry Bath Oil


Finished Blooming Blueberry Bath Oil

Today we are kicking off the start of a new blog series dedicated to blueberries. Every day this week I will release a blueberry-themed recipe. To start off, I’m making a Blooming Blueberry Bath Oil. I’ve told you guys in my past blogs that I freaking love baths, I have a bath usually a couple times a week. All that hot water can really pull all the moisture out of your skin. Using a bath oil will leave your skin feeling soft and moisturized. A blooming bath oil not only has oil in it, but has an emulsifier as well so that the water and oil mix together rather than having the oil just float on the top.

I chose Sunflower Oil for this recipe because, honestly, we have tons of it in our blog kitchen! Sometimes you have to formulate recipes based on what you have in the kitchen to use up old materials.  For the emulsifier I chose Polysorbate 20, you can use either Polysorbate 80 or Polysorbate 20. Polysorbate 80 will contribute bubbles and foam where Polysorbate 20 will not. Of course, I will be using our Blueberry Bliss Fragrance Oil which is a mixture of sweet sugar cane, creamy vanilla, juicy blueberries, and a hint of tart citrus.

Blooming Blueberry Bath Oil Ready to Pour

 

Bath Oil in 1 oz Cylinder Bottles

Mix Blue Oil Soluble Lip Color into Sunflower Oil. Add Polysorbate 20 and Blueberry Bliss Fragrance Oil. Mix well. Pour into containers. Label and enjoy! If you are going to use it in the tub, then I recommend adding while, or just after you finish, drawing your bath. Add anywhere from 1/8 of a cup to 1/4 of a cup per bath. If you are not much of a bath person, then I recommend using near the end of your shower by drizzling into your palm and rubbing over your skin. Rinse off the excess.

Don’t be alarmed if you start to notice your blooming bath oil separating. That is normal, just give it a good shake before use. Let us know what you think!
