Show and Tell: Lemon and Lavender Fizzy Bath Melts
I'm testing products for my (upcoming) shop, and one of the items suggested to me was a bath bomb. For those unfamiliar, they are a fizzy bath orb or disk that you put into the bath. The fizziness is due to citric acid and baking soda, in a moisturizing base. Mine is a combo of a melt and a bomb. A melt is purely moisturizing, no fizz. A bomb is fizzy with very light moisturizing properties. The benefit to this combo is that it's sturdier than a regular bath bomb.
These turned out lovely except that I don't think I can sell this batch due to it being a little too soft. The coconut oil I used has a very low melt point. Next time I will use cocoa butter and the fizzy melts will stay firm for shipping. I keep these firm by storing them in the cold garage and plopping them into the bath as needed.
