- A small mixing bowl
- Kitchen scales
- A cup or glass
- cheese grater (fine)
- A 250g jar & lid
- 140g coarse sea salt
- 40g epsom salts
- 10g finely grated cocoa butter (refined or deodorised)
- 20g dried (powdered) goats milk
- 20g sodium sesquicarbonate
- 10g tapioca starch
- 10ml your chosen Essential Oil or Fragrance Oil
- A sprinkle of a complimentary flower petal (optional)
Measure the sea salt, epsom salts, goats milk powder and sodium sesquicarbonate into the bowl. Take a ‘lump’ of refined or deodorised cocoa butter and grate 10g of it into the bowl with the other ingredients using a fine grater (if preferred grate into a dish and measure from there into the bowl). Mix these ingredients all together thoroughly.
Measure 10g of tapioca starch into a cup or glass and add 10ml (2 tsp) of your chosen essential oil or fragrance oil and mix thoroughly until the starch has absorbed all of the liquid, then add this to the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Finally (optional) sprinkle a little complimentary dried flower petals into the mixture, mix in and decant into the 250g jar. Being this mixture is very dry it will keep for a long while without clumping if sealed in the jar.
Simply sprinkle a handful into a warm bath under running water and luxuriate.
