These little melts add more than floral fragrance to your bath. They moisturize and protect skin because they are rich in essential fatty acids and skin-healing agents from organic lavender.
¼ cup grated cocoa butter
¼ cup grated shea butter
1 ¼ teaspoon dried whole lavender flowers
25 drops lavender essential oil
Gently melt together the butters in the top of a double boiler. Stir in the lavender flowers. Remove from heat; stir in the essential oil. Immediately pour into small molds. Let harden for several hours or overnight before removing from molds. Store in clean jar in a cool, dry place. To use, simply toss one or two into a tub of warm water.
