While you could add essential oil directly to your bath, essential oils are not water soluble, meaning they won't dissolve in water alone. To resolve this issue, you would normally add essential oils to epsom salt or soap and add it to the water. In this case, the other ingredients in our DIY bubble bath help disperse the oil throughout the water in the same way.
Including an essential oil in bath time is a wise choice when you want to create a specific atmosphere. For example, for a relaxing bath, use Lavender or doTERRA Serenity® essential oils. For a rejuvenating bath, use Citrus Bliss® to wake up.
