What mama doesn’t love to take a nice, hot, relaxing bath? It’s an amazing way to de-stress and relax after a long day.
Coconut Oil is amazing to use after a nice hot bath or shower – but why not use it in your bath?
Coconut Oil added to your bath is a great way to moisturize your skin. Combined with Lavender, it’s an even better way to relax after a long, hard day.
Coconut Oil works amazingly well to moisturize dry skin – and what better to combine with Coconut Oil than Lavender Essential Oil, which is one of the best Essential Oils for supporting healthy skin.
After you make these melts, store them in the fridge, and toss one in the bath as needed – perhaps for yourself or, for your kids.

Coconut Oil Bath Melts
- 1 C. Coconut Oil (we recommend this)
- 20 drops of your favorite Essential Oil (we recommend Lavender)
- Silicone Heart Mold (or any other Silicone Mold)
To make: Start by heating the coconut oil until it’s completely melted. Depending on where you live .. it might already be melted. 🙂 (At least for us here in Arizona it’s melted for most of the year.)
Add the essential oil and mix until combined. Pour into your silicone mold and place in the fridge to cool.
Once cooled, remove the melts from the mold and keep refrigerated (or keep in a cool place). I suggest placing the silicone mold on a cookie sheet before placing in the fridge to make it easier to move without spills.
If you prefer, you can use half Coconut Oil and half Cocoa Butter with oils such as Clary Sage, or Jasmine Essential Oils.
Use in your bath when your skin needs extra attention. Be careful though – the Coconut Oil will make for a slick tub.
What Essential Oils to use?
Many Essential Oils you find in store are merely fragrance oils – and should never be applied to your body OR ingested. These oils are created as synthetic substances – the smell is a mere imitation, but the therapeutic properties are not present. You’ll want to make sure you are using real quality, therapeutic grade essential oils – we recommend Young Living.
