Bath Bombs with Essential Oils-Homemade Christmas Gift idea

Just got this great Christmas gift idea from a friend.  My friend Brandi writes: "Hey I made these bath bombs and used DoTerra oils (Serenity and Peppermint), gave them as gifts and were a HUGE hit. Plus I tried them and they feel amazing in the water. I keep thinking that you need a copy of the recipe in case you have a use for it. You may already have something similar but thought I would shoot it over to you just in case. Giving more of them this holiday to my family. :-) "

Thank you Brandi! I decided that we all need a copy of this great idea!  Enjoy :)

Lemon Essential Oil

LEMON-My favorite tips from doTERRA Intl"s FB fans:

Lemon in my water all day long, in herbal tea, or just to smell for a pick-me-up mood boost.

Also added ONE drop to my new electric Mop to steam clean my hard wood floors. My 16 year old son liked the scent so much....he cleaned the entire house!

I love using lemon to get patches off scout shirts! I have 5 boys in scouts and am forever moving patches around and changing shirts. goof off used to be my goto, but it would leave such a nasty smell and a horrible sticky mess. I used lemon and the patch was off in minutes with no sticky mess or nasty smell! LOVE LEMON!!!

I use it in my water, and LOVE to clean with it. 1/2 peroxide, 1/2 distilled water and few dr
ops of lemon. We use this to clean everything the floors, counter tops, toilets and so on :)

I have use…
