Bubble baths are a fun way to spend time in the tub. Making your own homemade bubble bath makes sense if you like to use it a lot or if you want to try a bunch of different scents without spending a ton of money on bath products.
The bubble bath recipes on this page begin with one simple but tried-and-true base recipe, with lots of scent blends for you to experiment with.
I especially like this recipe because it generates lots of bubbles which stay really well compared to some other recipes I've tried.
The secret to big, long-lasting bubbles is the glycerin and sugar - you can substitute shower gel or even a natural, mild dishwashing soap for the castille soap, but don't leave out the glycerin or sugar.
1 1/2 cups (325ml) Liquid Castille Soap
2 tablespoons (10g) Vegetable Glycerin
1/2 tablespoon (7g) White Sugar
One of the Essential Oil blends below
Optional: up to 5 drops Food Coloring of your choice
I started using essential oils from doTerra after comparing them to the other brands in my stash.
I found myself using fewer drops per recipe and actually getting better results. Plus, I've never had a bad reaction, which sometimes happens with other brands.
doTerra's oils cost more than other brands, and that's as it should be. It's like buying a BMW vs. a Kia - the more expensive car is the better quality vehicle.
If you can afford them, I recommend giving doTerra's oils a try and comparing them for yourself.
You can buy doTerra's oils at retail prices by clicking the Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get a store-wide 25% discount. Message me if you want more details on the wholesale thing - why spend more than you have to, right?
I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs if you're on a tight budget. Their oils are more affordable and the quality is good. Click the links for...
Or... If you love having tons of options to choose from, browse through Amazon and see what looks good to you. Just remember that inexpensive oils are likely to be lower in quality - how else do they get the cost so low?
