A bath melt is a lovely way to add essential oils and skin-softening coconut oil to your bath - we just love this rose petal recipe from Laura Agar Wilson. 

Bath melts

½ cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons dried rose petals or lavender buds
20 drops rose or lavender essential oil

Melt the coconut oil in a double boiler and add your choice of rose petals and rose essential oil, or lavender buds and lavender essential oil. Pour into a silicone mold and leave to harden. 
Store the bath melts in a jar, in a cool place in the bathroom and add to your bath, as desired.
