Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Coconut Oil
  • 5 drops lime essential oil
  • 5 drops lemon essential oil
  • 5 drops orange essential oil
  • 5 drops grapefruit essential oil
  • 1 Tbsp. zest from any citrus fruit (optional)
  • Small silicone molds or ice cube tray

Instructions:

  1. Using a double boiler, melt the coconut oil over medium heat until liquified.
  2. Allow the coconut oil to cool momentarily before adding the essential oils.
  3. Stir the essential oils and the zest into the coconut oil.*
  4. Pour the mixture evenly into the molds or ice cube tray.
  5. Refrigerate the bath melts for 1–2 hours or until hardened completely.
  6. Put a bath melt into your warm bath and allow it to dissolve while you soak.
  7. Because coconut oil may liquify in a warm room, keep the remaining bath melts in the refrigerator until ready for use.

*You can substitute an floral-herbaceous blend for the citrus oils, if desired, and replace the zest with crushed, dried herbs. Try an essential oil blend of 5 drops geranium, 5 drops lavender, 5 drops lemongrass, and 5 drops rosemary essential oils.
