Create your own luxurious bath melts with rich, organic butters and a generous amount of lavender. After a nice soak your skin will be incredibly moisturized and scented.
Luxurious Lavender Bath Melts
Ingredients (organic please!):

  • ¼ cup organic cocoa butter
  • ¼ cup organic shea butter
  • 2 teaspoons dried lavender flowers
  • 2 drops lavender essential oil per bath melt
  • isopropyl rubbing alcohol

  • silicone mold with small shapes


  • Grate the cocoa butter and place in a large glass measuring cup (tip: microwave the cocoa butter a bit to make it easier to grate). Add the shea butter, and microwave the mixture on defrost until melted, approximately six minutes. Fold in the lavender flowers. Place the mold onto a baking sheet for ease of movement. Carefully pour the mixture into the molds, and add the essential oil to each one. Mist the tops of the molds with alcohol to remove any bubbles.
  • Place in the refrigerator for two hours to harden. Remove the bath melts from the molds and store in a cool place in a tightly lidded jar. The listed ingredients lends approximately 11 small molds, but you can easily double the recipe if desired.
  • Draw a nice warm bath and add one bath melt. Swirl. If you don’t want lavender floating around, simply put the bath melt in a small muslin bag.
  • Ahhh relax and feel silky smooth…

Take note that the rich butters in the bath melts can be slippery so please take care.
Some essential oils, including lavender, should be avoided during pregnancy.

Hi Miss Ladybug. I tried you bath melts and gave to my friends. They (we) all love them. One of the girls said she uses hers in the shower. Thank you for sharing another great treat!!

I'm so glad you tried these melts... aren't they wonderful? Do be careful using them in the shower (and bath), the butters can be slippery.
