In a new glass bowl, pour 4 oz of melted cocoa butter into bowl and add 1/2 of dry mixture (citric acid and baking soda). Mix well. Add 3 ml of Citrus Splash fragrance oil. Mix well. Add Liquid Lake Yellow 8 color - amount as desired. Mix well. Pour into desired mold. Place in freezer until firm. Unmold and set aside. Repeat process of mixing cocoa butter, dry ingredients, fragrance, color and molding with remaining ingredients. Cut into squares. Package in plastic bail jar.

Use 1-3 squares per bath. Be sure to use a bathtub mat as this product can make tub slippery. Product is very moisturizing to skin!

  1. Very nice! I'll have to try this. I like it when you post recipes that don't have to use a base.

  2. Sounds pretty nice,I will give it a try once i am back from vacation!!

  3. These are really cute, nice way to use up some of my recycled jars!

  4. I am making something similar for Easter, I received cute bunny molds from teh mysery candy mold sale. Cocoa Butter Bunnies with almost the same recipe. Very fun and easy.

  5. I made those today. Is the mixture suppose to foam after you put melted butter and baking soda together? The first batch did and the second did not.

  6. When I saw this recipe I had to make it up, so made a sample batch just minutes ago. I used a small mold in several shapes-shells,fish, had a hard time getting the mixture in..after the mixture hardened..I tried one in the did really well..reminded me of a bath fizzie. This is a very nice recipe!

  7. I know this is an old post, but I wanted to give my experience in case anyone else comes across. I also had mine fizz when adding the baking soda and citric acid, but then it also fizzed when I added the color and formed curdle like parts from when the foam hardened. I think powdered color may be the way to go, as the liquid reacts with the formula.
