TS4 Sims 4 Cottage Living Canning A Guide To canning

Since the beginning of The Sims, our sims have bathed and showered with JUST WATER - no soap, no shampoo. Now, with the help of some mods, not brushing their teeth, and having bad hygiene have consequences. The best thing about all these is that YOU and YOUR SIM can enjoy crafting bath products and essential oils to make the bath time fun and Simtastic!

Bath Essentials

The Soap Making Station can craft soaps, bath bombs, and bath salts that can be used when your Sims bathe and/or shower. The soap-making skill can be gained by reading the skill book that comes with the mod. The bath products can be crafted with and without ingredients: Epsom salts, essential oils, and more. Crafting, smelling, and using these bath products give at least 100+ different moodlets.

Aspirations help enhance gameplay for further storytelling. See Soap Making aspirations here.

The Skincare Collection is part of the Clash With Reality Mod which is a mod that enhances the realism in Sims 4 by offering a new sickness system, relationship interactions, and self-care in the forms of Chronic Diseases, Specialists Appointments, Skin Care, and more. For now, we focus on the Skincare Collection: Body Lotion, Coconut Body Milk, Face Moisturizer - Dry Skin Solution, hair Oil Therapy, and a Shower Gel. These products can be kept in your Sim's inventory or on a table. Interactions include custom animations and moodlets are gained when the products are used.

#3 Massage yourself or bathe in Essential Oils.

Essential Oils can be crafted with the Oil Distiller which can be found under Small Appliances, and it comes with The Oil Distillation Mod - The Oil Distillation Mod allows your Sim to craft 5 different types of cooking oils which can be used when a recipe requires "any oil," and 11 different types of essential oils which can be used for soap crafting, laundry, and bathing.

Bathing: The option to bathe with soaks requires Sims to pay. Fortunately, with the use of crafted essential oils, Sims will no longer have to pay for a 'bath with soak'. Instead, they will be required to have a specific kind of oil in their inventories for them to soak into once in the tub.

Your Sims need to care for their teeth. If they don't, they could have bad breath, cavities or even lose their teeth. These dental supplies help with dental hygiene, and a visit to the dentist plays a major role in your Sim's hygiene which is part of the Dental Care Mod by adeepindigo.
