Easy To Make Lavender And Cocoa Butter Bath Melts

Lavender and Cocoa Butter Bath Melts

Add a little luxury to the bath with these moisturizing cocoa butter bath melts. They are made with ingredients so natural that you could eat them, and you might just want to! The aroma of cocoa, coconut, and lavender makes my mouth water for what is essentially a gourmet truffle. These truffles, however, are best used in the bath, as the silky soft oils melt in the warm water and soak into your skin, leaving it moisturized and soft.These gorgeous Lavender and Cocoa Butter Bath Melts are surprisingly easy to make!

Cocoa butter is hydrating and soothing for your skin. At room temperature it is a solid, but as you add it to a hot bath it melts and the oil disperses into the water and absorbs into your skin while you soak.DIY How to Make Super Simple Lavender Cocoa Butter Bath Melts

Cocoa butter is the edible fat extracted from the cocoa bean and the main ingredient in chocolate. In fact, the flavor and aroma of chocolate comes from the cocoa butter and true chocolate can only be called by that name if it contains 100% rich, smooth cocoa butter. It is also full of antioxidants and is so good at moisturizing skin that it is very often used in skincare products.How to Make Simple Lavender Cocoa Butter Bath Melts

If you are looking for a way to pamper yourself or know of someone who could use some pampering, then make up a batch of these luxurious bath melts and turn a hot bath into a heavenly treat.Ingredinets from How to Make Super Simple Lavender Cocoa Butter Bath Melts


Makes 12 bath melts

Make it!

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.Melting cocoa butter from How to Make Super Simple Lavender Cocoa Butter Bath Melts

When the oils have melted and combined, add the essential oils and stir well.

Immediately pour into silicone moulds. I used a silicone ice cube tray but a candy mould will also work. A small pot with a pour spout makes this job a lot easier. I use this Turkish coffee pot for all my natural skincare recipes because it is small but tall, has a long handle to keep your hands away from hot oils, and has a spout which makes pouring much easier.

Move the silicone mould 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!Easy to Make Lavender and Cocoa Butter Bath Melts

Pop one or two bath melts into a tub filled with hot water and soak for at least 20 minutes.

    Love cocoa scent! The cocoa butter is awesome and make the skin so soft. I think that the combination with lavender seed is awesome!

    This sounds amazing and I would like to try making it! Do you suppose you could use Shea Butter instead of or with the Cocoa Butter?

    Hi Judy, you could, but I’m not sure how it would melt. BUT note that shea butter doesn’t smell as nice as cocoa butter!
