Reset Bath Melt Recipe with Essential Oils

Have you been busy with the strenuous activities that come with the summer?

Summertime activities can cause some major muscle fatigue, tiredness, and stress! Calm your aching muscles by taking a soothing bath with our Reset Bath Melt recipe using essential oils and other natural ingredients. It will give you a luxurious, fragrant, and energizing bath experience at home.

Bath melts may not have that color and fizz that bath bombs do, but they can give you that amazing, soft skin feel! It’s the perfect pampering treat for yourself after a long day.

What I Love About This Bath Melt Recipe 

I love how the coconut oil in this bath melt recipe moisturizes my skin and keeps it soft. Moreover, the essential oils not only uplift my mood but can also support respiration. That’s why I especially love using this recipe when I feel congested and tired.

What’s in This Reset Bath Melt Recipe?

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil gives this recipe a solid consistency. It also dilutes the essential oils to make it safe for the skin, and it doubles as a wonderful, natural moisturizer!

Energy Essential Oil Blend

It may sound counterintuitive to have Energy Essential Oil Blend in a bath melt. However, the oils in this blend are super soothing and are a great way to support muscular health after a long day.

Ice Tray or Mold

To shape your bath melts, you can use molds like a cupcake tin, ice tray, or other silicon molds (like the ones in the baking aisle). You can also check out this Pink Flower Mold or this Silicone Soap Mold from Simply Earth.

Tip: Once you use a silicon or plastic mold for essential oils, it’s best to keep that mold designated for essential oil recipes. 

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

If you are pregnant, consult your doctor prior to use.

This essential oil recipe is safe to use with kids aged 10+.
