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

parts cocoa butter solid

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.

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.

You are so welcome. I started that when I found out that gout was unchecked arthritis and I started feeling it in my knees when I ate and drank the bad list items for gout and arthritis

Glad I could help Jennifer.

Gaynel, not a good choice for you. I did some testing on myself and found that if I stayed away from them all I actually saw a reduction in my nuckle bumps, Artritis in hands. Then when I ate cabbage it was painful in my knees, It it was brussel sprouts as I eat more the pain was double, If I ate them two days in a row it was horrible. So I found my level of almost 0 effect. no more than two cups of coffee, if I do any cabbage or brussel sprouts I can only do a half cup.

no tea, but yes to everything else. Brussel sprouts is my favorite vegetable, as far as a cooked veggie
