Make your own Bath Melts : step by step

March 19, 2010

These are easy to make and will make your bath a luxurious, moisturising experience.

What do you need?

  • spoon or stirring stick
  • 95g cocoa butter
  • 5g oatmeal
  • dried rose petals and lavender buds
  • 10 drops rose absolute, 5 drops geranium, 5 drops lavender essential oil (or 20 drops of the essential oils of your choice)
  • silicone mold
  • bain marie I use an ordinary saucepan and a double boiler container

Buy your kit here

Assemble your ingredients and utensils

Drop some dried flowers into the base of your mold

Half fill your saucepan with water and heat but don't let the water boil vigorously

Melt the cocoa butter. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 15 mins, stir in your oatmeal, essential oils and the rest of your dried flowers. Leave for a few more minutes.

Pour the mixture slowly into each mold, try not to overfill (spills are inevitable so don't worry too much about them, you can scrape off later)

Allow to cool completely. If you are impatient, you can put them in the fridge on a small tray

Voila! Be proud and enjoy!
