My newest obsession are bath melts! Making them are so simple it’s embarrassing and are a great way to soothe skin in the colder months. The best part about these bath melts are they are 100% natural and smell so good you could eat them.
Made with Raw Cocoa Butter, it’s super hydrating and extremely moisturizing. Cocoa butter is solid at room temperature but once added to the warm bath water it melts and the oils disperses into the water and absorbs into the skin. I have a ton of dried lavender flowers so I decided to add some into the mix along with lavender essential oil, but these are wonderful and just as moisturizing without those extra ingredients.
- 55 g cocoa butter (I buy mine here)
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil (I buy mine here)
- 20 drops lavender essential oil (I buy mine here)
- 1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers ( I buy mine here)
- Silicone ice cube tray as a mold (I buy mine here)
- Melt the oils in the small pot over medium low heat. Stir constantly and keep a watchful eye on the oils. You want them to just reach the melting point and not overheat.
- When the oils have melted and combined, add the essential oils and stir well.
- Immediately pour into silicone molds.
- Sprinkle dried lavender buds on the hot oil, dividing the tablespoon up evenly between the bath melts.
- Move the silicone mold to the refrigerator to cool for 2 hours, and you’re done. Store the finished bath melts in fridge or a cool place if your house is warm so they don’t melt before you want to use them!
- Pop one or two bath melts into a tub filled with hot water and soak for at least 20 minutes.
