Relaxing Bath Blocks

To make fragrant bath moisturising blocks, simply melt 500gm Shea butter over a very low heat, then add 1.5ml Lavender Essential Oil, 1mL Bergamot Non Phototoxic Essentail Oil and 2.5ml Marjoram majorana essential oil.

Blend and pour the melted butter mixture into ice-cube trays. Once the butter has set, pop out the blocks and store them in air tight containers - ready to use for every bathing ritual.
