How to: Make your own bath oils

Treat yourself to your own personalised bath oil.

By Wendyl Nissen

Making your own customised bath oil is a wonderful thing to do to treat yourself.

Here are five formulas I recommend, using essential oils to help you recover, de-stress or simply find some energy.

Mix the essential oils together with the almond oil, then pour into the bath just before you get in.

Give it all a swish and enjoy.
