Easy Handmade Rose Bath Oil Beads
I've always wondered how to make handmade bath oil beads, I love bath bombs in the bath but found that I wanted something a bit more emollient (gotta love that word :0)
I've never been able to figure out how to make a true oil bead naturally, but I find these do the trick and are a true luxury in the tub.
Handmade Rose Bath Oil Beads Recipe
17g refined cocoabutter
5 g virgin coconut oil
3g meadowfoam oil
1 part MSM powder (may sub baking soda)
1 part citric acid
2 parts baking soda
2 parts epsom salts
2 parts cornstarch
1 1/2 parts goat milk powder
1 part mineral salts
NOTE: GRIND COURSE INGREDIENTS SUCH AS EPSOM SALTS TO FINE POWDER IN COFFEE GRINDER.
Dry rose petals - slightly crumbled - use as many as looks right to you.
Melt the cocoabutter, remove from heat and add the virgin coconut de creme. It will melt into the cocoabutter. While this is going on, measure 80g of powder base into a large bowl. Pour the liquid oils into the powder a little at a time stirring constantly (I just use my hand to mush it around) Add your essential oils after your oils. Squeeze tightly into approx 12g balls.
Immediately run a bath and test them out! (caution: they may be a little slippery, so be careful getting out of the tub)
NOTE: The MSM powder and Mineral Salts were originally put in as an aid to relax and get rid of aches and pains, if you don't want it, you can substitute more baking powder or powder or your choice. Sea Salt can be used as well.
