FESTIVE BATH MELT RECIPE
½ cup cocoa butter
½ cup shea butter
4 drops cedarwood essential oil
3 drops sweet orange essential oil
3 drops star anise essential oil
3 drops clove essential oil
2 drops pine essential oil
First of all, in a small glass bowl, add the cocoa butter and shea butter. Then, place the bowl in a saucepan with an inch of water and bring to a simmer. Watching carefully, allow the butter to gently melt. As the butters melt together, gently stir in the essential oils.
Slowly pour the liquid into a silicone mould or ice cube tray. Place in the fridge so as to speed up the hardening process. Finally, once solid, pop out the melts. Keep in an airtight container in a cool, dark location for up to two months.
Run a warm bath and drop a melt into the warm water. Sit back and relax in a soothing and rejuvenating soak, letting the essential oils work their magic.
This festive bath melt will leave you in the mood for making hot, wintery drinks, hanging mistletoe, and have you ready to sing along to the best of Michael Buble and The Pogues. With any bath, we recommend kicking back with our Goodwash Company soy candles to set the mood, which are free from nasty chemicals.
