How To Make Oatmeal & Lavender Bath Melts
Watch our video below to see how to make these luxurious melts.
- 1/2 cup of shea butter
- 2 tb of sweet almond oil
- 1 tb of dried lavender buds
- 1 tb of oatmeal
- mini silicone ice cube mold
- mortar and pestle
- 8 oz glass jar and sauce pan
Combine the dried lavender buds and oatmeal in a mortar and pestle. Grind into a fine powder. Set aside.
Pack shea butter into the glass jar.
Add in the sweet almond oil.
Place the jar into a sauce pan with a couple inches of water. Heat on low until the shea butter is melted. Carefully remove from heat.
Add the powdered oatmeal and lavender to the melted shea butter and sweet almond oil. Mix well.
Pour the mixture into the mini silicon ice cube try. Let it set until hardened.
How To Use Bath Melts:
Drop one of the melts into a running warm water. It will slowly melt in the warm water and leave a light layer of oil.
Sit back and relax.
When you are done with your soak, be careful when you get out of the tub—the bath melts will make the surface slippery.
Be sure to clean the tub after your bath to make sure the surface is no longer slippery.
Store the extra melts in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Bath melts also make wonderful gifts.
