I was never really a DIY gal until essential oils happened in my life and now I want to make ALL the things! I just taught such a blush-worthy class last night on Romance & Intimacy with Essential Oils (you can catch the replay on my Facebook page!) and it was filled to the brim with special DIYs I put together. One of which were these nourishing bath melts, LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THEM!
Because of the cocoa and shea butter, these little beauties melt slowly in a hot bath. They smell like citrus and chocolate (because of the cocoa butter) and they make your skin feel like a babies bootaay. I made these with the idea of having a romantic bath in mind for Valentine's Day. I mean, imagine a glass of wine (or sparkling grape juice!), candles flickering, maybe your significant other has gone above and beyond and brought home some chocolate covered strawberries?! And you, my friend, get to just lay back and soak in a hot bath that smells like dreams and chocolate wishes. You're welcome!
So they smell incredible, they make your skin feel super soft and for those of you that enjoy some good ol dry brushing before bathing/showering, this is a plus! AND I used mine to rub on my legs in place of a shaving lotion and it worked beautifully. SO, put these on your next DIY night wishlist. You won't be sorry! ;)
SUPPLIES NEEDED TO MAKE 6 MELTS:
* 3/4 Cup Cocoa Butter
* 3/4 Cup Shea Butter
* 1 TBSP Coconut Oil
* 30 Drops Citrus Bliss (smells like oranges and cream!)
* 20 Drops Bergamot
* 10 Drops of Ylang Ylang
* 10 Drops of Peppermint
* Silicon Mold
* BONUS: Dried Rose Petals
STEP 1 In a double boiler melt together the cocoa butter, shea butter and coconut oil. STEP 2 Once melted, take mixture off the heat and add in your essential oils. Stir together. STEP 3 Pour into your silicon mold and let it set in the fridge. Store in cool place, I like to just keep mine in the fridge! When ready to use, draw a bath and drop in one of your melts. Enjoy!
I hope you love these as much as I do, I think they would make a pretty great "Galentine's" gift too! ;) AND girl, if you need to get some magickal essential oils into your life, click that Babe Brigade link in my nav!
Happy Wednesday my friends!
