Two-Layer Lemon Bath Oil

I love layered bath oils! Here's an easy and tangy two-layered bath oil recipe. The bath oil has a stimulating and refreshing scent. To use, simply shake the bottle to mix the ingredient and pour a small amount into the bath. The layers will reform. Vinegar is used instead of water because no preservative is required. If you wish, you can add a bit of food coloring. It will color the vinegar portion of the mixture.
Yield 1/2 cup
Time 5 Minutes
  • measuring cups/spoons
  • pretty bottle, preferable tall and thin, with cork or cap
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (e.g., olive, corn, canola)
  • 1/4 cup vinegar (choose from white or apple cider, depending on desired color)
  • 1/4 tsp. lemon essential oil (found in the spice aisle of your grocery store)
  • 1/4 tsp. oil of bergamot
Directions Add all of the ingredients to a clean decorative bottle.

Seal and label the bottle.

Shake immediately before use to mix the ingredients and keep the layers even.
