I hope you’re all well.
I’m a little behind on my posts, so if you see a lot of emails popping up from me, it’s because I’m trying to catch up!
A few weeks ago, I made this great Rose Bath Bar, which is just a bath melt. I used a candy bar silicone mold I got from Amazon, and it looks like a real candy bar, hence why I named it “Bath Bar.” 😏
This D.I.Y. was a lot of fun and very easy to make using only a few ingredients.
Though I did spill my cocoa butter mixture and had to start all over again! Cleaning up melted butter can be a mess, so work carefully if you try this recipe.
Also, this recipe is adapted from Sara’s Soaps on Youtube! Please go check out her channel!
All about the Ingredients:
Cocoa Butter: A super-moisturizer! It leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth, without the greasy feeling. When using cocoa butter, it does smell..like cocoa..so if you need to use more fragrance oil, do it! The cocoa smell can overshadow the fragrance if you don’t use it a lot.
Rose Petals: This is optional, but I thought it would be nice to infuse the melted Cocoa Butter with some dried roses. Rose can be very soothing for the skin, helping with acne, inflammation, and dryness.
Polysorbate 80: Also an optional step, but I highly recommend using this. Polysorbate helps the oil and water bind together; that way, you don’t have a pool of butter floating on top of the water, and you don’t slip when you get out of the tub. If you use this, it’ll help reduce that slipperiness. I did notice a bit of leftover butter on the bottom of my tub but not a lot. Overall it’s butter in the tub! So be careful if you decide to use Polysorbate or not.
Citric Acid and Baking Soda: I use this in most of my D.I.Y. recipes! These two ingredients help active and break down the bath bar once it gets in the water, like with shower steamers and bath bombs! Everyone loves to see the fizz!
