|When taking a bath, have you ever wanted to have the benefits of adding oils that will help your skin, but at the same time you don’t want the oily ring that occurs around the tub? What is the point of taking a relaxing bath when you have to clean the tub afterward? I went to our Research & Development Department for some assistance in eliminating this ring problem.
This problem can be solved by making a Blooming Bath Oil, which has an emulsifier mixed with the oil so the oil mixes with the water instead of floating on top! This bath oil will separate into layers in the bottle, so you just need to shake it up before pouring into the tub. Think of a vinaigrette salad dressing, because the oil and vinegar must be mixed together before pouring over your salad. Who would want just oil on their salad when they were expecting the vinaigrette mixture? This is how a Blooming Bath Oil works, because you don’t want just oil in your tub.
Today we are going to make a Blooming Bath Oil with Sesame Oil and Polysorbate 20. I’m using the Sesame Oil because it is an oil that is light on the skin, yet it is rich in great nutrients for the skin. The Polysorbate 20 is an emulsifier that is not likely to foam very much.
Collect needed items:
Weigh all ingredients into mixing container, or if you wish, you can weigh directly into a bottle of your choice. Stir ingredients together if you measured into a mixing container, or you can cap and shake the bottle if you filled a bottle.
These Blooming Bath Oils will be included in the Mother’s Day Gift Baskets!
