Fizzing Bath Bombs

DIY Bath Bomb recipe with essential oils

Bath bombs are a fun way to enjoy the benefits of essential oils and make a bath (or shower!) extra special!   

DIY Bath Bombs sound intimidating but they are not that hard.  Even better, there are no bad chemicals in these all natural DIY Bath Bombs. Only natural, pure ingredients, so you know what you are soaking in. 


*For relaxation, try Lavender essential oil or doTERRA™ Serenity. For a mood boost, try Wild Orange or Citrus Bliss essential oil blend.


  1. Place citric acid, baking soda, corn-starch, and oil in a bowl.
  2. Add eight to 10 drops of the essential oil or blend of choice.
  3. Mix well with spoon until soft dough is formed. It should have the consistency of damp sand. Note: If the mixture is too wet, try adding a little more baking soda and cornstarch until consistency is correct. 
  4. At this point, you may add coloring, dried herbs or flower petals to mixture.  I like these colors because they are non staining.
  5. Place mixture in silicone molds. Let sit 24 hours before removing from mould. (check out these super cute heart molds!)
  6. To use, drop in tub or shower and allow to dissolve.

Natural Moisturizer 

Finding the right moisturizer can be tricky, so why not make your own? This DIY Natural Moisturizer contains Lavender Essential Oil, which is ahhhh-mazing for skin!  Lavender soothes occasional skin irritations and reduces the appearance of skin imperfections. 

Make your own natural moisturizer with beeswax, aloe, jojoba oil, almond oil, and essential oils like lavender



  1. In a medium saucepan, gently heat the almond and jojoba oils with the beeswax. 
  2. Once melted, transfer your mixture to a deep mixing bowl. Leave to cool for an hour or until the mixture reaches room temperature.
  3. Slowly add the aloe vera gel and Lavender oil as you blend the mixture with a hand blender.
  4. Continue adding aloe until you have reached your desired consistency.
  5. Store in an airtight container and apply to skin generously.

Peppermint Body Scrub

Make your own DIY bath salts and sugar scrub with essential oils

With three ingredients only, this home-made DIY all natural body scrub will help the skin to look and feel healthy. 

Exfoliating helps to eliminate dead skin cell build-up and peppermint will simultaneously help you feel more energized.  

Your skin will feel soft and beautiful without the use of all those chemicals typically found in store bought versions. 

 You could use LavenderWild Orange or any other favorite essential oil instead of the Peppermint if that's not your thing.



  1. Mix the coconut oil with the brown sugar. You might need to soften the coconut oil in the microwave first.
  2. Add about 5 drops of peppermint essential oil to your mixture
  3. Stir together
  4. Store in a small jar
  5. Use your DIY natural skin body scrub whenever it’s needed!  

I choose to use doTERRA essential oils.  They are the purest, highest quality and only brand I trust to use for my family.  Find out Why I LOVE doTERRA here.  It's not only just for their fabulous essential oils. It's for their sustainability and the way they work hand in hand with the farmers and communities who grow the plants.

Choose your essential oils carefully - most are not what they seem.
never buy doterra essential oils on amazon because of tampering
Why doTERRA and not something from Amazon or Walmart?

Did you know that most essential oils at drugstores are synthetic fragrance only?  And did you know that most oils on Amazon, even doTERRA, are adulterated (tampered with and diluted with coconut oil), and can't be trusted? 

 The cheapest way to get doTERRA is with a starter kit which start at only $55.  Check out the details here or fill in your information in this quick form and I'll email them to you.

About the author  Dawn Goehring

Holistic Living Mom with years of experience with essential oils. I have a doTERRA Essential Oil Specialist certification, and Aromatherapy with distinction diploma. Essential Oils enabled my son to live life again to his fullest after struggling to do basic activities like go to school and play soccer. Because his life was so drastically improved, a passion was ignited in me to learn as much as possible about essential oils, including how they are sourced, tested, and ultimately how they work in the body. I love to make my own all natural beauty products and rarely purchase cleaners or otc products from the store. doTERRA is the first essential oil brand I was ever introduced to and it has worked so well for us that I am now a loyal follower and educator.
