What Are Rose Tub Melts?

Tub bombs, tub fizzies, tub salts… add tub melts to that record! Tub melts are filled with emollient oils that fairly actually soften within the tub.

There are a lot of ingredient choices to make these, however I selected shea butter, coconut oil, and cocoa butter. Right here’s why:

Shea Butter for Pores and skin

Traditionally utilized in wound care, shea butter helps with collagen manufacturing. This butter additionally helps strengthen the pores and skin and fights wrinkles by preventing irritation. It’s a staple in plenty of my favourite recipes, together with this whipped physique butter.

Coconut Oil for Tub Melts

Coconut oil is just like the MacGyver of skincare elements! My household makes use of is it in every little thing from oil pulling chews to lotion, and chocolate coconut vitality bars. It’s additionally the right alternative for these rose tub melts.

Rose Geranium Important Oil

I discover it to be a less expensive choice, it smells wonderful and comes with pores and skin advantages.

Rose geranium helps enhance uninteresting or oily pores and skin and might help with pimples and cellulite, in line with aromatherapist Julie Lawless.

Kaolin Rose Clay

Rose clay is a kind of kaolin clay, however as a substitute of the standard off white, it’s a rosy pink. Its pink hue is because of naturally occurring iron oxides. Rose kaolin clay has a wonderful consistency so it blends easily into skincare merchandise and is particularly good for dry to regular pores and skin sorts.

Warning: The pink clay can stain materials so I take advantage of an outdated towel when drying off after utilizing these rose tub melts. Positively not the time to make use of your favourite white towel!

Rose Infused Oil

Whereas rose important oil is uncommon and expensive, there’s a less expensive approach to embrace roses in skincare. Infusing rose petals in coconut oil helps harness the helpful properties of the herb. Roses have antioxidants, calm and soothe each pores and skin and temper, and are anti-inflammatory. Rose-infused coconut oil makes a beautiful addition to this rose tub melts recipe.

You possibly can see how I do herb and oil infusions right here.

What If I Don’t Have a Bathtub??
