So it’s been a while again. But I was feeling pretty motivated to get back at posting some stuff to my own blog after browsing through some pretty amazing and inspiring blogs. And there are so many things I want to blog about that I just don’t know what to do…lol. I’m interested in trying everything. And I mean everything. I like cooking, fashion, beauty, interior design & home renovation, as well as crafts (especially knitting, even though I hardly get around to doing it). One of the many things I wanted to try was making bath products. So I got that in my head and picked up some supplies. Next thing you know, I’ve made some fabulous bath truffles.
These Lemon Poppy Seed Cupcake Bath Truffles were a cinch to make…..
So, first thing I did was search for a recipe (found on Soapqueen.com) and make a list of what I needed. I just ordered a couple of the ingredients from Amazon (Soap queen has them too). Easy peasy.
I adapted the recipe just slightly to change the scent and add a little twist of my own to it.
Here it is….
Natural Bath Truffles
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup caolin clay
2 oz melted cocoa butter
1 oz melted shea butter
1 oz essential oil of your choice
optional: additive such as poppy seeds
mold or you can shape them by hand
Here is the link to where I found the recipe. They have a youtube video you can watch too to for more in depth directions.
These make your bath smell amazing! These little gems fizz away in your bath, adding moisturizers to the water. I used a lemon cake perfume oil for the scent. Poppy seeds are a natural moisturizer and they can be used to treat eczema. My skin was so soft and silky after using these.
Wrap them up in a pretty little box with some tissue and they will make a lovely gift.
