Homemade DIY White Chocolate and Coconut Oil Bath Melts. Relax and nourish your skin with this simple, 2 ingredient recipe plus optional essential oils.
Melt the cacao butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally so that the butter doesn't burn.
After the butter is melted, remove the sauce pan from the heat. If your cacao butter was in big chunks before you melted it, you can double check in a measuring cup at this point to make sure you have 1/4 cup. If you're a bit under, pop it back on the stove and melt a little more.
Once your cacao butter is ready, add the coconut oil. It should melt into the still warm cacao butter fairly quickly; no stove top needed unless it's the middle of winter and your coconut oil is really solid. Stir until well mixed.
Poor the oil mix into a chocolate mould and freeze if you'd like them to be ready faster.
Pro-Tip xD - make sure your mould is on a plate or tray before you fill it. That way you can easily place them in the freezer, since the oil may spill out if you try to carry the mould after you filled it (they're pretty malleable!) I may or may not have made this mistake in the past... ;)
Your white chocolate oil bath melts will harden fairly quickly in the freezer. When they're solid, remove them from the mould and store them in a container in the fridge.
Coconut oil softens at room temperature and will melt in warmer weather, so it's best to keep them cold - otherwise they might not keep their form. If you're worried someone might mistake them for food, make sure to mark these babies as oil bath melts... they definitely wouldn't taste great! And it would be such a sad waste!
When you're ready to soak in the tub and moisturize that beautiful, sexy skin of yours, grab one or two and drop them in the water! Relax, soak up the goodness, and enjoy. You and your skin will love it!
CAUTION - oil will make the tub slippery, so please be careful! Make sure to use a good quality bath mat and, to avoid slipping, add the bath oil melts after you've gotten into the tub. It’s also really helpful to give the bath a quick wipe down after you've drained the water to remove excess oil.
