I have been thinking about making my own bath oil with some skin friendly oil, FO, and polysorbate 80. Has anyone else done this? My thought was that the polysorbate would disperse the oil and FO into the water for a better experience. Thought I would ask if anyone had experience with this before I tried it.

I have an old Voyageur recipe for a dispersing bath oil. You can, of course, change out the oils to whatever you prefer.

Dispersing Bath Oil

Yield 500 ml

50 gm Avocado oil
50 gm Apricot Kernel oil
50 gm Sesame Seed oil
100 gm Soy oil
100 gm Sunflower oil
150 gm Polysorbate 80

Add 10-20 drops of essential oil per 4 oz bottle; cap and shake to mix.

Some EO ideas:
Relaxing: Clary Sage, Geranium, Bergamot, and Chamomile
Invigorating: Orange, Lemon, Neroli, Peppermint, and Lemongrass
Contemplative: Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Frankincense, and Lavender
Romance: Rose, Jasmine, Neroli, Sandalwood, Vanilla, and Ylang Ylang

Thanks, Misschief! So now that I know it is doable, I just have to try it. Thank you so much for this.
