Why a Botanical Infuser Machine?
This handy device is where the magic happens when making homemade bath oils.
It infuses any oil with your choice of botanicals in just one hour. You can even use it to make essential oils, lotions, balms, tinctures, and more.
If you want to enhance the potency of your herbs, flowers, or plants, you can first use a decarboxylation machine.
It’s very easy to use.
- Add your chosen plant product to the decarb container.
- Secure the lid and close the airlock. Keep the 4 side latches open.
- Run the machine for about 90 minutes at 250°F.
- Once done, use oven mitts to remove the container and pull the valve to decompress.
- Let the decarbed herbs cool, and enjoy!
Your Basic Bath and Shower Oil Recipe
To make your standard bath oil, you’ll need 1-2 cups of any carrier oil (such as almond, grapeseed, or coconut oil) and a handful of each herb, flower, or plant product you desire.
- Place them in your ONGROK Botanical Infuser Machine and set it for 1 hour.
- Once it’s done, strain the oil and store it in a Glass Dropper Jar.
- Add a few drops to your bath water, and enjoy!
With the basics done and dusted, it’s time to get creative.

Luxurious Homemade Bath Oil
If you want to pamper yourself with a luxurious bath oil that smells like a spa, try this savvy homemade DIY bath oil recipe.

Essential oils add aroma and therapeutic benefits to your bath oil. You can choose any combination that suits your mood, such as lavender for relaxation, citrus for energy, or jasmine for romance.
To make this bath oil, you’ll need:
- 1/4 cup of hydrosol or rose water

Mix them well in a glass bottle and shake before each use.
