What is a Blooming Bath Oil? Blooming bath oils differ from ordinary bath oils in that they disperse INTO the water, rather than floating in an oily layer on top. These are simple to create, and some interesting effects can be achieved by varying the ingredients you use. Polysorbate 80 is best for these easy to make "oils".
If you wish to learn more about surfactants we have an starter info page HERE. You may substitute your favourite liquid oil to suit what you have, or what you like best. You may also use either Fragrance or Essential Oils.
No heating is required, just mixing and I like to use a Pyrex jug for making these.
