DIY Chocolate Bath Salts Recipe

DIY chocolate bath salts - an easter giftOkay ladies, who wants to bathe in chocolate? I thought as much. I would love a good chocolate bath myself but it’s not really that realistic. I mean, that’s a lot of chocolate to melt and who has the kid-free time to really commit to such a thing?  Nobody, that’s who. So I have the perfect shortcut – DIY chocolate bath salts. For a no-cal, skin-reviving Easter indulgence that will leave you feeling even better than getting to eat an entire giant chocolate egg without having to share. Let me show you how.

Supplies 

  • Epsom Salts: 2 cups
  • dark chocolate: 40 grams
  • Himalayan salt: 2 tablespoons
  • cacao: 1 tablespoon
  • almond oil: 30 ml (coconut oil would work great also)
  • bicarb soda: 2 tablespoons
  • vanilla extract: 1 tablespoon
  • mixing bowl
  • glass jar: I recycled an old 350 gram candle jar (learn how to clean them out here)

Step 3: Use a grater or vegetable peeler to crumble the chocolate in.

Step 2: Stir again and pour it into your jar.

And that’s it. I am going to give some to my lovely lady friends in the hope that they will give themselves a bit of me time this Easter, you should grab yourself some me time too!
