CALMING CHAMOMILE BATH OIL
After a long day, nothing—seriously, nothing—is better than a hot bath. This herb-infused bath oil is perfect for soothing irritated skin and calming your mind so you can unwind and fall asleep more easily. It’s made with coconut and sweet almond oils to replenish moisture, and chamomile to help you relax. Lavender, cedarwood, camphor and rosemary essential oils give it a wonderful scent that’s not only soothing but also good for the immune system.
3/4 cup sweet almond oil
1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil (which stays liquid at room temperature)
20 drops lavender essential oil
8 drops rosemary oil
15 drops cedarwood oil
10 drops camphor oil
1 cup dried chamomile flowers or 20 drops chamomile essential oil
Glass mason jar (for infusing the chamomile oil)
8-ounce glass bottle with lid
1. Start by infusing the chamomile oil. For the slow extraction method, combine dried chamomile flowers with 1 cup almond oil in a glass mason jar. Screw on the lid and set aside to steep for 3 - 4 weeks, then strain out the chamomile. To save time, combine the chamomile and almond oil in a small sauce pan. Heat over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes, then turn off the heat and let the chamomile infuse in the oil for an hour. Strain out the chamomile.
2. Using a funnel, pour the almond oil into a glass bottle. Add the coconut oil and essential oils (if using chamomile essential oil, add it now). Feel free to add more chamomile blossoms or other dried herbs if you like.
3. Screw on the lid and shake well to combine.
4. While filling up the tub, pour 1 - 2 tablespoons under the running faucet. Allow the oils to disperse throughout the water before climbing in. Soak for 30 minutes then gently towel off.
