Sweet Dreams Aromatherapy Bath Oil

Sweet, soothing, sleep-inducing bath oil recipe

Deep, rich and sensuous, this aromatherapy bath oil is one of my favorite homemade bath products.

It calms your nerves and quiets your mind, while the self-care relaxes your muscles, so you can fall into a deep, peaceful sleep.

Not only that, but these essential oils are especially good for repairing the skin and reducing wrinkles (Bonus! I'm all over that!)

If you don't have time for a bath, simply massage some of the lavender aromatherapy oil into your face and torso before sliding into bed - you'll get the same luxurious effect!

Sweet Dreams Aromatherapy Bath Oil Recipe


20 drops Lavender essential oil

16 drops Orange essential oil

4 drops Clary Sage essential oil

1 drop Vetiver essential oil

1 drop Ylang Ylang

4fl oz (125ml) carrier oil of your choice (see below for ideas)


Combine all the ingredients in a dark glass or PET plastic bottle. Store it in a cool, dark place (not your bathroom cabinet - it's too warm and humid.)

To use your aromatherapy bath oil, pour about a tablespoon into the bath after you've finished running the water. Click here for tips on how to take a perfect aromatherapy bath.

Choosing the Best Carrier Oils for Your Skin

Choose carrier oils that nourish and support your skin type.

For example, you could add a bit of borage oil or sea buckthorn oil to a base of sweet almond oil or jojoba oil for dry or maturing skin.

For oily skin, use grapeseed oil or jojoba.

If you have troubled skin, eczema or psoriasis, or if your skin is really sensitive, try avocado oil, calendula oil, or kukui nut oil.

You can really boost the skin-repairing powers of the essential oils by tailoring your carrier oils to your skin's needs.

Experiment - it's fun, and your skin will love you for it! Click here for the secret to super-soft skin.
