Coconut Oil Bath Melts - Next time you take a bath pop one of these nourishing coconut oil bath melts into your bath! Your skin will feel softer than a baby's tush!

I love to take hot detox baths. It’s one of my favorites ways to unwind after a long day. I usually apply coconut oil to my skin after I bathe, but lately I’ve been adding coconut oil into my bath. It melts immediately and completely moisturizes my skin from head to toe! Another benefit about using coconut oil in the bath is that I find I use a lot less oil than if I were to apply it to my skin after my bath.

Coconut oil is one of the most nourishing oils to use on your skin. It’s especially healing to those with dry-itchy skin. I like to add a few drops of my favorite essential oils along with the coconut oil to help me relax and for skin health as well.

Below is my recipe for making coconut oil bath melts with essential oils. Pop one in your bath and nourish your skin!

Coconut Oil Bath Melts

Coconut Oil Bath Melts

Yields 1 cup of bath melts.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Heat the coconut oil on low heat for 1-2 minutes or until coconut oil is completely melted.
  2. Remove from heat and add essential oils.
  3. Mix well and pour the melted coconut oil into your molds.
  4. Let the coconut oil bath melts cool. If it’s warm in your home this may take some time. You can place them in your fridge to cool quicker if you like.
  5. Once cooled, pop the melts out of the molds and store them in a container in a cool place.
  6. If you keep your home warm (70 degrees or above) you may need to store these in the fridge or freezer so they don’t melt.

    I set my coconut oil outside on the porch railing to melt. I can not get food coloring to blend with the oil. it just beads up. Great recipe

    How do you poor it into the molds? This was very messy for me and I’m wondering what’s the best and easiest way to do this? Thanks!

    Just love all you are doing, but I think most of all that you are a committed stay home mama. It’s rare to find that in these days. And of course am a coconut fan too , learned it all in Mosambique the African original way. They don’t really know the value of their daily food. It’s so delicious. Keep it up and shine.

    Love these!! Although, they do make my skin feel a bit too oily, I think I am going to cut back on the amount of essential oils. I found that using a medicine syringe to fill the molds makes it easier and less messy! I have a ton of tylenol syringes so I used one of those to fill the molds rather than dumping the oil from the pot and getting oil everywhere. I place the mold in the fridge and start filling them with the syringe, the syringe also makes it easier to make sure all the molds are evenly filled. The second batch I placed some
    julienned orange peels in the molds then filled the oil in ontop. They look beautiful and it makes the bath smell great!

    i tried this and the molds never hardened – even after putting in the fridge and taking out they melted – my house isn’t super hot or anything. Any suggestions? The only difference i can think of, is I used an already opened container of Coconut oil and it seemed softer than an unopened container.

    Will have to try these! I found that using coconut oil in my sugar scrubs in the bath were slowing my drain so if ur pipes can handle it u might wanna pour some boiling water down them every so often just to keep things running smoothly.

    Why have I never thought of bath melts?! These are seriously genius-love the idea. My son and I struggle with a little bit of eczema, and I’m wondering if these (add a little breastmilk!) would help with those dry patches. Thanks so much for sharing! <3

    I just made a batch using silicone molds and my apartment smells amazing. I used half coconut, half cocoa butter with jasmine and rose essential oils. My biggest problem was pouring the melted oil into the molds. What are your tricks for not making a huge mess? I have oil all over my counter…lol!

    Just made my first batch and they came out AMAZING. I made them for my 4 year old who seems to have a particular aversion to lotion so I can’t wait to see how they work on her!

    I’m new to this stuff so I do have one question: would adding food coloring be a bust?

    • Laura Fangel March 25, 2016, 1:52 pm

      I would think food coloring might stain your daughter’s skin or the bath tub once the oil melts.

      Casey, I made mine in a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup. In the microwave, I heated my coconut oil in the measuring cup (carefully and slowly so it just melted) then added my essential oil. Using the pouring spout of the measuring cup, I didn’t spill a drop pouring it into my silicone mold. 🙂
      Hope this helps you out. 🙂

      Claudia, you can buy it in liquid form in the grocery store but honestly just use it solid, I love it, I use it every single day, it is the best! solid just melts in the bath 🙂

    Coconut oil has helped my super dry eczema-prone skin SO much! I usually rub on some to my skin just after my shower and then pat myself dry- and I need no lotion the entire day! Its natural and calms my skin.
    Thank you for all the coconut related advice. It works and helps 🙂
