The dilution rate for bath products is usually 1 – 4% but you must keep in mind the maximum levels for safety for specific essential oils.
Add essential oil/s to a carrier oil
Add 5-15 drops total to 15mls of carrier oil (jojoba and fractionated coconut are good choices for a less slippery bath)
|Add essential oil/s to a solubiliser||
Polysorbate 20/80 – 1:1 ratio
Natural solubiliser 1:5 ratio
|Add essential oil/s to a surfactant||
Bubble Bath Base 5 – 15 drops in 15mls of bubble wash base.
If you are making bath salts in a jar – you will need to add the essential oil to the carrier oil and them mix through the salts. Don’t use a solubiliser at it breaks down the salts and you will come back to a liquid mess.
Essential oils should always be diluted (not only just in the bath) more on this next time.
