Moisturizing Bath Melts

Quick and simple to make, these skin-softening bath melts contain a combination of nourishing shea butter, moisturizing cocoa butter, and coconut oil, blended with balancing geranium essential oil. The melts also work well in a warm shower since the heat from the water softens the butters, allowing you to massage the melt gently into the skin for a deeply moisturizing dry-skin treatment.

How to make

1 Put the shea butter and cocoa butter in a glass bowl and melt in a bain-marie.

2 Add the coconut oil to the warm, melted butters; add the essential oil and combine. Pour into soap molds or miniature cupcake cases.

3 Leave to cool and set. You could decorate your melts by pressing dried flowers into the surface as they cool. Keep them cool and dry in their cases and store in the fridge until needed. They keep for up to 3 months.

Best uses

– In the bath Add the bath melt to a warm bath. Alternatively, use it in a warm shower, allowing it to soften in the heat of the water then rubbing it into your skin for a moisturizing treat.

Safe usage Take care not to slip when getting in and out of the bath.
