What better way to say “Thank you” to your mom this Mother’s Day than with these uplifting Bath Melts? The Grapefruit Essential Oil is great for relieving migraines, PMS, and stress; it also helps balance emotions and brighten moods! The Salts are soothing, while the Mango Butter prevents the drying of skin (which prevents wrinkles), reduces degeneration of the skin cells, and restores flexibility of the skin! These Bath Melts are a woman’s dream come true.
(Makes approximately 24 melts)
- Melt 3/4 cup Mango Butter in a double boiler. Remove from heat.
- Slightly dab a Paper Towel into the melted Mango Butter and lightly coat the inside of the Fortune Cookie Molds.
- In a sterile container, mix 1/3 cup of Sea Salt with 12 drops Tropical Red Colorant until the salt is a uniform color.
- In another sterile container, thoroughly mix 5 teaspoons Natrasorb with 1/4 teaspoon Grapefruit EO.
- Add the Natrasorb mixture to the Sea Salt mixture and mix well.
- Fill the mold cavities approximately halfway up with the Sea Salt mixture.
- Pour the melted Mango Butter over the salt in the Molds.
- Carefully put the Molds in the freezer.
- After about an hour, remove one of the Molds from the freezer.
- Gently remove the Bath Melts from the Mold. NOTE–you may have to wiggle and tap the Mold on the table to release the melts.
- Wrap each Bath Melt in Plastic Wrap.
- Repeat steps 9-11 for the other Molds.
- Place the wrapped Bath Melts in the Chinese Takeout Box.
- Keep the Takeout Box in the freezer or refrigerator until you are ready to give it as a gift. Then, present the gift and have the recipient keep the Takeout Box in the freezer or refrigerator until they are ready to use a Bath Melt. NOTE–the Bath Melts will get very soft and mushy at room temperature.
Use one Fortune Cookie Bath Melt per bath. As the tub is filling, toss in one Fortune Cookie. Get in and enjoy this luxurious bath. Be extremely careful getting out of the tub because it will be slippery!!!
