Homemade Bubble Bath Update ~ Another "Frugal" DIY Book
I got bubbles, but I have well water too. The water turned a milky white due to the ingredients too. The bubbles were not real big, but the clove oil really stood out. I think any good essential oil will work. It just depends on what you want.
The bubbles kind if fizzed out in 15 minutes, but my skin did not feel dried out afterwards.
I also did some reading on clove bud oil. I really need to spend more time doing this research. Had I known it can kill tiny bugs, I would have bathed in it right after working in the barn (dust mites etc).
Original Recipe: Homemade Bubble Bath
Our library just got this book in. The first half contains DIY type recipes - lotions, lip balm, cleaning recipes, etc. The last half contains food recipes. There are a few body care recipes I may try. Just another resource to find recipes. I may try the homemade deodorant recipe too. It uses several essential oils, and one I do not have on hand. I'll be borrowing this book a few more times. If I try any, and they compare better to ones I'm making now, I'll let you know.
