Stormy's notes for this recipe:
Bath melts are a great single serving of pure body soothing heaven. You can make these up using any small mold or my favorite is using a clear plastic 18 topper for eggs as a mold. that makes them rounded on one side and flat on the other side.

Will post a picture soon

Melt the cocoa butter add EO(s) and color if you wish. then add powdered ingredients, stir then pour into molds. Let sit in fridge or freezer until set then pop out of molds and let sit for a day or two.

Then use or wrap air tight to store or give as gifts

I use a microwave to melt the cocoa butter. add the essential oil after not before doing that.
My favorite's are

1. Orange peel finely grated and a drop of orange essential oil. A light orange color is nice also

2. Lavender flowers crushed and essential oil if needed for scent and purple coloring if desired

3. Peppermint leaves crushed and peppermint essential oil with a drop of green coloring.
Orange essential oil is a anti depressant, anti septic, aphrodisiac, carminative.

Peppermint essential oil is a mood booster and there by anti-depressant, helps with a stuffy nose, kills poison ivy and sumack, releaves itching, and reduces swelling, antiseptic.
