DIY Beauty: Bubble Bath

I don’t know about you, but after the mad dash of the holidays, I could use some pampering.  Like a lot. Soaking in a tub of bubbles seems pretty perfect right now.

Making your own beauty products can be a lot of fun, so I did some searching for an easy bubble bath recipe. I found this one and thought the combination of vanilla and honey was right up my alley.

It’s easy to put together, inexpensive and smells incredible. I had to keep reminding myself not to eat it. Really, it smells that good.

Stored in a beautiful glass container like this one from Crate & Barrel,* it looks so pretty sitting on the edge of your tub or left out for guests at your house. Adding a custom tag with a note on how to use, gives it a personal touch. But, beware. If you treat your guests this well, they may never leave.

Vanilla Honey Bubble Bath

1 cup light oil (almond, sunflower, or canola)
½ cup honey
½ cup mild liquid hand or body soap
1 tablespoon vanilla extract.

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl with a spout. It will look kind of gloppy, but should come together. The smell is incredible. Don’t eat it. To use, shake gently to remix and pour ¼ cup under running bath water.

*Can you believe that container only costs $5? It’s so pretty and would be perfect filled with water on a table or used to infuse vodka. The possibilities are endless.
