Lavender body products

Lavender is such a great essential oil. It has so many health benefits and it smells amazing. I struggle with anxiety and I use lavender to manage it. So I’m always looking for great products to use it in. And I love a good soak in the tub. This makes your water so creamy and even more relaxing. Don’t forget to always take care of yourself so you can take care of others!

There are other great products you can make with lavender essential oil.

I also love to use lavender in these super easy bath salts. This is a great remedy for sore muscles and other aches and pains. It’s also super relaxing. If you suffer with anxiety, the magnesium in the epsom salts helps with that too.

For the lavender bath melts, you can grab these molds and use them to make soaps, and other things as well. But you’re going to want them to make these luxurious melts over and over again once you feel how you feel after a bath with these.

Here are 20 recipes you can make with lavender.

How to use a bath melt

Bath melts are small molds that hold shea butter and oils. They remain firm at room temperature. But make a fascinating bath experience once added to the water. Once you set them in warm water, the melting process begins, leaving the oils and shea butter contained within the mold’s compact form to disperse into the water, producing an abundantly moisturized, fragrant, and luxurious bathing atmosphere. 

Run a soothing hot bath and set the bath melt in the water. It will completely melt into your bath and create a moisture-rich, velvety bath.

You’ll be shocked at how soft your skin gets when bath melts are used in the shower. Lotion won’t be necessary for the whole day.

Once you are finished washing in the shower, grab a melt, hold it underneath the warm running water so it begins to melt, and rub it all over your body under the warm water. You should get three or four showers just out of one bath melt. You’re going to be moisturized and your skin will feel great.
