2 Tablespoons glycerine

Moisturizing Bubble Bath:
When you use this recipe in your bath, don't be dismayed if it doesn't produce great quantities of bubbles. Keep in mind that it is a bath oil blend that moisturizes your skin while you soak.
1/2 cup (118 ml) soap flakes
1 cup (237 ml) boiling water
3 tablespoons (44 ml) sweet almond oil or bath oil blend
a few drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)

Dissolve the soap flakes in the boiling water, stirring gently. Immediately add the almond oil to the water mixture; then add the essential oil, if desired. Stir constantly while you add 4 to 5 tablespoons of the bubble solution to the running water in your bath. The rest can be used later, but you will need to stir it again, since oil and water don't mix easily.
Shelf life is about 1 month at room temperature.
"Big Bubble" Bubble Bath
Large bubbles are more difficult to produce, and most home recipes will make small but adequate bubbles. Glycerin is used in this formula to "stretch" the bubbles and make them bigger.
1 cup (237 ml) soap flakes
1 cup (237 ml) water
2 to 3 tablespoons (30 to 44 ml) glycerine
a few drops of essential oil, if desired

Mix all of the ingredients together and store your bubble bath in a beautiful glass bottle or container. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons (15 to 30 ml) under rapidly running water to create large, generous bubbles. This mixture can also be used as a shower gel; shake it before using. Store at room temperature. Shelf life is 2 to 3 months, if stirred occasionally.
Bathing Rituals in the Land of milk and honey
Milk and honey are time-honoured ingredients that have been used for centuries, either as main ingredients or as formula additions. Milk is noted for its soothing qualities (ancient peoples used to think it would also make their skin "milky white") and honey for it's skin softening and protective qualities.

Ancient-formula Milk Bath
1 cup (237 ml) powdered milk
2 tablespoons (30 ml) almond meal
2 tablespoons (30 ml) barley or oat flour
A few drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. This mixture can be sprinkled directly into the bath, using 2 tablespoons (30 ml) per bath. An interesting variation is to substitute rolled barley or oat flakes for the flour, then fill empty tea bags with the mixture (remember to seal the tops). Soak in your aromatic milk bath for approximately 20 minutes. When you're finished, wrap yourself in a warm towel and enjoy the cleanliness and softness this bath imparts to your skin.
Store at room temperature in pretty tins with lids or old milk bottles.
Shelf life is 2 to 3 months
