Pina Co­lada Bath Oil

Pineap­ple es­sen­tial oil helps to re­duce joint in­flam­ma­tion, soothe the ef­fects of coughs and colds and boost the body’s im­mune sys­tem. Gardenia has anti-in­flam­ma­tory as well as stress-re­duc­ing prop­er­ties. You can use fra­grance oil in­stead of es­sen­tial oil to re­duce costs, but be aware that these do not have ther­a­peu­tic prop­er­ties.

In­gre­di­ents • 1/8 cup canola oil • 1/8 cup apri­cot oil • 10 drops pineap­ple es­sen­tial oil • 10 drops gardenia ab­so­lute • 10 drops co­conut fra­grance oil

Mix all in­gre­di­ents to­gether and store in a dark bot­tle un­til ready to use. Add a few drops to the water as you fill your bath.
