DIY White Chocolate Bath Melts
Indulgent, chocolate-scented, moisturizing bath treats. These are currently my new favorite bath time addition and are so simple to make too. I prefer using refined butters and oils in all my homemade beauty products as I find they are kinder to the skin and also blend better with fragrances, but feel free to use the unrefined versions if you like. Unrefined cocoa butter will have an even stronger smell of chocolate (so its pretty nice), unrefined coconut oil will make these smell of coconuts as well.
50g (1.8oz) White Cocoa Butter, Unrefined (more chocolate scented) or Refined
25ml (0.8 fl oz) Refined Coconut Oil
Around 10 drops essential oil or fragrance (optional)
Lavender Flowers (optional) (The cocoa butter has a naturally rich chocolate aroma which would go well with Rose, Sweet Orange, Peppermint, Lavender or even Grapefruit oils. Chocolate or vanilla would both be great fragrance options too).
You will also need:
Chocolate molds or an ice cube tray (Amazon sells inexpensive silicone molds in a variety of shapes.)
1. Shave cocoa butter into small pieces and flakes using a large, sharp knife (or you could use a grater).
