Two of my sisters started a business making hand made bath and body products a few years back. I was amazed at all the wonderful products they were able to make on their own. After trying some of their organic bath oils I was surprised at how much I loved them. You can make a large variety of kind and fragrances using natural ingredients. If you look at the label on these items in a store you practically need a Ph.D. just to read the label of ingredients. I feel much better using a product where I can identify all the ingredients in it. These wonderful bath oils make great gifts and holiday presents. It is easy to go out and just buy something, but everyone appreciates the time and love you put into making their bath oils. Once You start making them you can eliminate or change up the essential oil fragrances some to your favorites. Below are two recipes for our organic, relaxing bath oil.
