My daughter is obsessed with LUSH cosmetics. Enter a mall with LUSH and she makes a beeline to LUSH, Smiggle and Claire’s Accessories and all her hard earned pocket-money is spent in minutes on bath bombs and bath melts. So, I’ve been exploring ways that she can still soothe her senses while being easier on her pocket. Making homemade bath bombs and bath melts is a perfect activity for us to do together on a weekend.
These bath melts are fragrant but all have conditioning ingredients especially good in winter time as my kids both tend to get dry skin. Relax in a bath as they slowly dissolve and fizz while infusing the water with oils and butters to soften your skin.
Variations for this recipe are endless; we always add some rose petals for the luxury effect and food colouring to make them interesting. They make wonderful gifts and we have been know to make bath melts for Christmas gifts and end of year presents.
Disclaimer – Thermomix® is a cooking appliance intended to be only used for food preparation.
However, the recipes here are using food ingredients – sugar, spices, coconut oil, food colouring etc. which I do cook with so I am happy to make ‘beauty’ products using my Thermomix. I also have multiple TM bowls, so I can safely use separate bowls for making these without any cross contamination. If in any doubt, don’t make them.
