Shea & Mango Bath Melts

A wonderful bath melt which mixes and disperses with a fizz when you drop one or two into the bath. You can use icecube trays as moulds or anything else that you think might be suitable!


200g Bicarbonate of soda
100g Citric acid
25g Shea butter
12g Mango butter
2.5ml Apricot kernel oil
1ml Wheatgerm oil (good anti-oxidant)
3g Polysorbate 20
20-30 drops essential or fragrance oil


In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients and place in the moulds

In a double boiler, melt the butters and add the fixed oils, heat through and stir well

Allow a few minutes to cool before adding essentail or frangrance oils, mix well

Pour the oil/butter into the moulds containing the dry ingredients (you may want to mix in gently to fully coat the dry ingredients a remove pockets of air

Cool rapidly (best to place moulds in the freezer)

When set, remove from the moulds. Drop one or two into a warm bath!
