The bathroom is one of my favorite places to use essential oils. Here are the top ways I use them in my bathroom to replace toxic products!
1) Relaxing bath with essential oils
Add 1-3 drops of lavender or your favorite essential oil to the bathwater for a relaxing bath (add oils to bath salts or Epsom salts to help them disperse in the water).
2) DIY Hand Soap
Place 10-15 drops of Purification or Thieves essential oil with a few tablespoons of soap and water to a foaming hand soap dispenser for your own inexpensive (and non toxic) hand soap.
3) Toilet paper roll air freshener
Put a few drops of grapefruit essential oil to the inside of your toilet roll for an instant air freshener every-time you roll it!! #genius
4) DIY anti-aging serum
Add carrot seed and Frankincense essential oil to jojoba oil in a roll-on container for your own inexpensive age fighting face serum.
5) DIY Toilet Cleaner
Place a few drops of lemon essential oil in your toilet bowl with vinegar, baking soda, soap and scrub for a squeaky clean toilet bowl.
6) Non-toxic perfume
Combine 15-30 drops of your favorite essential oil to a roll-on bottle with jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil for your own non-toxic perfume (I love combining peppermint and grapefruit for this, or using Valor essential oil blend)!
7) DIY Reed Diffuser & Clothespin Car Diffuser
Place 30 drops of essential oil in a small vessel with ¼-1/2 cup carrier oil and add some diffusing sticks for a DIY reed diffuser.
For a homemade car diffuser, take apply a drop or two of essential oil to a clothespin and put it on the heat vent in your car!
8) After toilet spray
Make your own after toilet spray by adding 30 drops of purification essential oil to a medium sided spray bottle filled with water and shake.

How much carrot seed and Frankincense essential oil do you add to the jojoba oil in the anti-aging face serum?
3-5 drops for an oz of oil
You should add a note to #5. Castile soap should never be mixed with any acid (vinegar or lemon juice). http://lisa.drbronner.com/?p=292
using essential oils in a bath - add your oils to epsom salt before adding to the bath. This way the oils will be dispersed through out the water instead of just sitting on top of the bath water. Oil and water do not mix.
When you are misting, oils mixed with water in a spray bottle, make sure you shake often. The water helps disperse the oils.
Cute, but exactly what I fight against!
Please, please, don't forget the huge fields which are required to make essential oils instead of producing food!
I think essential oils should be used as drugs and a few other things, but before using them to feed your toilet paper, please, think about the sacrifice they represent...
Where in America is there a lack of food! The government pays farmers to not plant fields! Get you facts straight
Please no Do Terra or Young Living essential oils
they are overated and overpriced there therapietic
grading is nothing more than a marketing con.
I have heard they are the BEST & Safest oils to buy. not just therapeutic, but some of their oils you can cook with for flavors. Also add to drinks.... others you cannot.. is there any other oils you know of that you can add to food or drink that are cheaper? Thanks ,would like to hear your reply...I am new and learning.
It is not recommended to keep essential oils in the bathroom. The bathroom tends to be a warm environment, which can cause your oils to oxidize and turn rancid more quickly. Any basic essential oil training course or manual usually mentions this.
