DIY: Bath Melts

Who doesn’t love a bath? Hot water, lotions, and potions and some good old you time. Sounds great right? I rarely have a bath, but when I do; I like to go all out. Bath time is my luxurious, 5-star spa experience. Candles, a movie, maybe a little bit of wine. Piece and quiet, how perfect? Most importantly and best of all, creating silky soft and moisturizing bathwater. I’m a big fan of Lush bath melts, seeing as I won’t be able to get my hands on any for a while; I decided to make my own.

Bath melts are fun and simple to make; on your own or with whoever you may currently be isolated with. If you’re looking for something fun to do, for great relaxing treats later; keep reading.

  2. 3 tablespoons of any citrus zest of your choice (orange, lemon, lime)
Steps –
  1. Heat coconut oil on low heat for 1-2 minutes or until melted
  2. Remove pot from heat and stir in zest (I’m using orange zest)

I couldn’t find any ice cube trays to make these today, so I opted for some soap molds I have. These are slightly bigger so I will cut them into 4s before use.
