Homemade Soothing Bath Oils

Recipe #1

1 cup honey
2 cups milk
1 cup salt
1/4 cup baking soda
1/2 cup baby oil
Fragrance oil of desired scent

Combine honey, milk, salt and baking soda in a bowl.
Fill your tub and pour the mixture in. Add the baby oil
and a few drops of the fragrance.

Recipe #2:

1 whole egg
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup baby or mineral oil
1/4 cup whole fresh milk
2 teaspoons liquid soap or dishwashing liquid
1/4 cup vodka
Fragrant oil (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a blender for 30 seconds. Use only
one or two tablespoons of this oil in a bathtub of water.
OR, try this...
Turkey-red oil (a derivitave of castor oil) acts as an
emulsifying agent for other oils so they won't coat your
skin or the tub. Mix 3 parts turkey-red oil to 1 part
fragrance oil. Add a few drops to your bath.
