A quick and simple way to soothe and soften the skin is by using bath melts that contain a nourishing blend of shea butter, coconut oil and cocoa butter. These Lemon Bath Melts with also boost your mood with its refreshing aroma.

Don't have time for a bath, grab a melt & use it in the shower by rubbing it over your skin, it will melt as it hits your skin and the warm water. The melts are deeply moisturizing for dry skin.

Why Lemon Essential Oil

You can use any essential oil in this recipe, I chose lemon because I love its fresh aroma. So cleansing to skin and invigorating. Here are just some of the benefits that lemon oil offers:

- Tones skin & boosts circulation

- Acts as a natural antiseptic

- Aids in detoxification

- Deodorizing scent that uplifts the mood

Here is the silicone mold I used for this recipe, I have used for other DIY crafts, I really like it:

Directions

Step 1: Weight out the cocoa butter wafers and shea butter. Place a glass measuring cup onto scale, turn scale on and then hit "TARE" button to get the scale to zero with the cup still in place, add wafers until you hit 1 oz, then add shea butter until the scale reaches 2 oz.

Step 5: Pour into silicone mold, one recipe makes a batch of 4 bath melts. I made 2 separate batches that is why my photo has 8 melts (one batch with lemon EO, one batch with coffee EO). Place in refrigerator so they can cool and set.

Step 6: Once they are set, pop out of mold and place into a container. These need to be stored in the refrigerator or they may get too soft at room temperature. To avoid the need for refrigeration you could add some beeswax to the recipe but I wanted my melts with just the butters and oils. They keep for up to 3 months in the fridge.
