(NaturalNews) Bath oils are a wonderful way to help you relax at the end of a hard day and they are also very easy to make. You can purchase bath oils at your favorite retail store, but once you find out how easy and natural they are to do on your own you'll never waste your money again. One of the benefits of making them yourself is knowing that there aren't any chemicals in the final product. It's all natural and good for your skin.

The only ingredient in the bath oil you make from home is essential oils. You use different essential oils depending on the skin issues you have or what emotion you want to have as result of your bath. Some essential oils are more energizing while some are more calming.

If you want to have a relaxing bath that almost has a hypnotic effect use neroli oil. Neroli oil is great to use if you're having a hard time falling asleep. It is known to have sedative and tranquilizing effects. It is a fragrant oil that comes from the orange tree. Put 10 drops directly into warm bath water and then sit back and relax. Breathe in deeply and try to free your mind.

If you suffer from back or joint pain add 2 drops of thyme essential oil to your bath as well as 4 drops of eucalyptus oil. Soak in the bath for at least 15 minutes. Thyme has been used throughout history to relieve asthma, coughs and colds and to treat nervous disorders. The Romans would bathe in it before battle because they believed it promoted bravery. Today we know that it's good for muscle pain. For some people, thyme can be irritating to the skin. Until you know how your body will react to thyme start with just one drop and then gradually add more. The eucalyptus enhances the action of the thyme.

The following bath oil is actually more of a milk bath. Cleopatra was famous for bathing in milk and moisturizing her skin with oils. This milk/oil bath is rich in vitamins, minerals and protein. It will leave your skin feeling soft and moisturized. It will help relieve nervousness and tension. To make this bath oil you will need the following ingredients:

1 cup organic dried milk powder (if you have oily skin use nonfat milk)
1/4 cup orange peels
1/4 cup lemon peels
4 drops of lavender essential oil
While the water is flowing slowly add the dried milk. Then add the orange peels, lemon peels and the lavender oil. Soak for at least 20 minutes.

Sometimes the oils will form a film on the surface of the water. To avoid this add one capful of pure castile soap or a very mild natural shampoo (like natural baby shampoo) to disperse the oils in your bath water.
