What is gum arabic

Gum Arabic Bath Oil Recipes

A natural gum, also known as acacia gum and dating back about 5000 years, is a natural gum made of hardened sap taken from two species of the acacia tree - Senegalia senegal and Vachellia seyal. Ancient Egyptians used it for hieroglyphics and mummification

It is edible and used in the food industry as a stabilizer, fibre supplement and even candy.

Gum arabic is also a key ingredient in traditional lithography, printing, paint (watercolor paint is pigment mixed with gum arabic as a binder), glue, cosmetics, viscosity control in inks and in textile industries. In our bath oil recipe, it acts to combine the oil and water to avoid seperation.

Simplicity makes it easy to make and share

These recipes are simple to make and easy to use. Most ingredients are available from local health shops. Occasionally, you may have to buy some ingredients on the internet.

If the ingredients are not available in your country, always check your local laws to make sure that you can import cosmetics into your country - some countries restrict the import of cosmetic ingredients.

These recipes are probably just the tip of the iceberg. There are probably many more favourites out there.

If you have one that you love and would like to share, we would all be very grateful and so would our community.
