6 DIY Natural Spa Recipes with NightBlooming Signature Oils

On of the things I love doing is blending up unique mixes of quality, natural oils and essential oils into a Signature Oil Blend. It’s exciting to try each one, but most people only need so much hair oil. In addition to oiling your hair or scalp, here are 6 DIY Natural Spa Recipes with NightBlooming Signature Oils.

Bath Bombs

Your Signature Oils are perfect for Bath Bombs, giving you a fun way to introduce skin-nourishing oils and fragrant essential oils to your bath. There are many tutorials out there, but the simplest way is just to use your Signature Oil in place of the oil that the recipe calls for and omit any additional essential oils.

Ingredients and Supplies:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 2 tsp. essential oil
  • 3 tsp. NightBlooming Signature Oil
  1. Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix them all evenly with a whisk. You can add dried flower petals, herbs, or similar dry ingredients, but be sure to keep in mind how they’ll play with the essential oils in the Signature Oil blend you’re using.
  2. In an a separate container, mix the liquid ingredients together.
  3. Slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mix, one small spoon at a time, and blend.
  4. Place in a mold and pack tightly. You don’t need a special mold for this, I’ve used an ice cream scoop and done half-spheres. Work quickly so the bath bomb mixture doesn’t dry out, and then allow to cure for 24-48 hours.
  5. Store in an airtight container.


Scalp & Body Scrub


Nothing says winter like dry, itchy skin and flaky scalps. While you can purchase Thriae Scalp Scrub premade, you can also blend your favorite Signature Oil with honey and brown sugar to make a nourishing, restorative scrub.

Ingredients and Supplies:

  • 1 part honey (1/4 tsp pictured)
  • 2 parts Signature Oil (1/2 tsp pictured)
  • 8 parts brown sugar (2 tsp pictured)
  1. Gently mix things up with a spoon (or even your finger!) until the ingredients are well-blended.  It should have a smooth yet grainy texture.  If it seems too dry, add another drop or three of oil and blend some more.
  2. Store. Whatever container you use, make sure it is waterproof, rust-proof, and has a tight-sealing lid.  Glass, ceramic, plastic or stainless steel is best.
  3. Apply. You’ll want to do this on damp or towel-dry hair.  Sopping wet hair will dissolve the scrub faster than you want, and if your scalp is too dry then the abrasion will be too harsh.  I advocate doing this while soaking in a relaxing hot bath. Scoop out a bit of scrub and work it down to the scalp with your fingers.  Don’t worry if it gets on your hair, it won’t hurt it at all!  Work the scrub into the scalp using a small, gentle circular motion, adding more scrub as needed.  When the scrub has dissolved, let it sit for a few minutes on your scalp  so the beneficial properties of the honey and Signature Oil can work their magic.  Got leftovers on your hands?  Work it into your face too, just be careful not to get it in your eyes, nose or mouth.  It won’t kill you, but it isn’t a good idea to ingest anything with essential oils.  Yes, it smells sweet and yummy- don’t eat it!
  4. Rinse. Water alone may not be enough to get the residue from the scrub out, so you can use your favorite method of washing to remove it.  As you rinse, be sure to work your fingers at the scalp, ensuring that water can rinse things clean.   You may notice you shed a few more hairs than normal, this is expected and nothing to worry about!  The hairs that were ready to fall out in the next day or two just got worked out a bit sooner with the scalp massage, you’re not losing any hair you weren’t going to anyway.
