Essential oils can be used in your bath four different ways. First, you can just add them neat to your bath water and swish it around. You will have a luscious aroma plus the therapeutic properties of whichever oil you use. The oils can also be used  to make homemade bubble baths, bath oils, and bath crystals.

If you like bath crystals, you will love the fact that you can make your own and not pay a lot of money for fancy packaging like you do when you buy them in the stores. To make your own you will need some attractive glass jars. You can save them over the year for next holiday season or for any occasion when gifts are given. If you don’t have any for this season, you can put the crystals in a small gift bag from a party store or simply put them in a plastic sandwich bag.

All you need to make your bath crystals is washing soda crystals, a little food coloring, and the essential oils of your choice. Just crush the washing soda crystals, add a little food coloring (your choice of color) and the essential oil you want for that color. Use a corresponding color for the essential oil you choose like yellow for lemon or red for peppermint. To each 9 ounces of colored crystals add 20 drops of essential oils. Tie a ribbon around the jar or bag and voila, you’ve got your holiday gift.
