Luxury Bubble Baths are very expensive. But over the years I've tried many recipes to make it and have come to a final perfect and easy bubble bath to make. This can be personalised and the bottle is just as important to me as the content, especially if it's a gift.
This week I saw luxury Bubble Bath for $50 a bottle. So it reminded me to make some more!
I always save up pretty bottles. In op shops they are usually $1 or so. This one is my own in the bathroom most of the time bottle. Now for gifts I suggest you need a screw top or secure lid as you don't want leaks.
I found these little bottles and they are ready for me to add sticky balsamic vinegar that I make. I just add lace and a charm to make them cuter and this kind of thing would work for your Bubble Bath as well.
Or you can decorate bottles... these are all free bottles recycled. If you know anyone who drinks spirits... or liqueurs the bottles are fabulous!
Ok all you need is to find an inexpensive supermarket bubble bath or shampoo. You want something that smells nice and is a lovely colour. I tend to go for something pale pink and rosy or something creamy and vanilla. So for my at home recipe I use:
1 bottle of bubble bath or shampoo, one cup or so of epsom salts, half a bottle of glycerine and a few drops of rose essential oil (if its a pink mix).
This mix needs shaking or stirring before use. It is DIVINE. The epsom salts are beautiful on your skin and good for you. The glycerine makes the big bubbles.
Use a good amount placed under the running tap. That's it!
To give as a gift, use sealable bottles. I leave out the epsom salts as it settles to the bottom of the container which needs shaking. You could include it with instructions that it must be mixed.
For a little girl (or maybe a big one!) a tiny amount of glitter can be added. Clear makes it sparkle and is fabulous!
It is a great gift for someone who you know adores baths.
For someone who loves lavender, find a lilac colour base or mix a blue one with a pink one to get lilac. Then add lavender essential oil and tie a few sprigs of dried lavender to the bottle. They will love you!
Never go past a free or bargain lovely bottle. I have so many things to make that need bottles so I always collect them. And over time I'll share all these things so you will always have lovely gifts to give.
