• DIY Rosemary & Lavender Bath Melts

    These bath melts will help relax your skin and mind. Oats, butters and oils soothe and nourish itchy and irritated skin, while lavender and rosemary fight skin troubles and calm the mind. Treat yourself to these gorgeous-looking melts or make them as a gift!

    Apricot Kernel Oil is a light carrier oil and a great moisturiser. Its high linoleic acid content also makes it ideal for aiding troubled skin.

    Cocoa Butter softens and soothes skin, heals dry and damaged patches, and may help soothe irritation.

    Lavender is antiseptic and antibacterial. It is also a calming scent for the mind.

    Rosemary is antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and antiviral, making it a potent aid to troubled skin. The scent is also a great energiser.

    Oats are incredibly nourishing for the skin – they moisturise, heal, soothe, and fight dry and itchy patches.

    Rosemary & Lavender Bath Melts



    1. Place the cocoa butter into a glass jar and set it down into a saucepan filled with about 6cm of water.
    2. Put the saucepan on medium heat and melt the butter with the warm water. Once melted, add the apricot kernel oil and mix in to combine.
    3. Grind the dried lavender, dried rosemary and oats down to a very fine powder with the electric coffee grinder. Remove any large pieces.
    4. Put the ground up ingredients into the melted mixture and stir. Add essential oils.
    5. Pour mixture into moulds and place in the fridge or freezer to set. Once set, remove and store in a sealed glass jar ready to use.

    How To Use

    Drop 1 bath melt into the bath while running the warm water. Hop into the bath and watch it slowly melt, leaving a moisturising layer on your skin.

    Ensure you have a bath mat to stand on when leaving the bath, as you may be slippery from the oils.

    Pat yourself dry – don’t rub, as you want to keep the nourishing oils on your skin.

    This recipe makes approx. 4-5 bath melts, depending of the size of your moulds. Store out of sunlight in a cool, dry place. Use within 12 months.

    These will become soft upon handling or melt in warm weather, so keep in the fridge if desired.

    As with all our DIY recipes, you can experiment to suit your preferences. Many factors can change the end result, including temperature, humidity, light, ingredient quality. Some DIYs can be amended by remelting or adding ingredients, but some cannot. Please read the whole recipe before beginning and remember to have fun!

    Biome cannot issue a refund if the DIY skin care product, DIY hair care product or DIY body care product you make using our raw DIY ingredients do not perform as you’d hoped. We will, however, offer a refund if the raw DIY ingredient packaging is broken or leaking, or the ingredient itself appears to be ‘off’.

    Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient’s potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.

    If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you’ve made yourself, or commercially formulated product.

    Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
