Weigh out the cocoa butter, shea butter and emulsifying wax in a Pyrex measuring jug.  Melt the mixture in a waterbath.  You can make a waterbath by filling a pot or pan with water.  Stir gently until everything is melted.  Remove from the heat and add 1 teaspoon of fragrance oil. We love using Lily Rose or Coconut fragrance oil.

Pour the melted, fragranced butters into the mould and leave to cool.

Choose a small mould so as to minimise the oiliness in your bath.

The emulsifying wax will stop the bath melts from leaving an oily ring around the bath.
