How to Make Bath Melts with Beeswax
For my organic lemon lavender bath melts recipe you’ll need a digital scale that weighs in ounces, a long handled plastic spoon, a glass pyrex container, a teaspoon measure (cup), an ice cube tray, and your ingredients.
First measure out one level half teaspoon of beeswax pellets or 1/4 tsp. of carnauba wax and place into a glass pyrex container. (Note that using up to 1 teaspoon of beeswax in order to keep solidity in warmer climates may make these more difficult to melt in bath water.)
Then weigh out 2 oz. each of cocoa butter and shea butter. Combine these ingredients in a glass container with your wax. Heat in the microwave at 50% power until full melted. (Use a pot holder when removing the glass container from the microwave as it will get very hot.) Stir. Add your essential oils.
Measure out 1 teaspoon of chamomile flowers and 1 teaspoon of lavender flowers.
Add the chamomile and lavender flowers to your melted butter and wax mixture and stir well.
Pour your liquid bath melt mixture into a clean, dry ice cube tray. It will serve as a simple and inexpensive mold as well as make removal of the bath melts from the molds a snap! Place the ice cube tray in the freezer until bath melts have fully solidified.
Once your organic lemon lavender bath melts have solidified, remove the ice cube tray from the freezer. Now simply twist the tray the same as you would ice to remove the bath melts. This recipe will yield five evenly sized bath melts. You can store these in a decorative 7 oz. glass pantry jar or an 8 oz. white plastic jar.
To use simply add one bath melt under hot running water to your bath. Alternatively, you can place one bath melt inside a small cotton muslin bag and add to hot bath while water is still running. Store in a cool, dry location. Materials for this project were purchased at Mountain Rose Herbs.
