141  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: bath melts wont come out on: July 23, 2007 10:14:56 AM
Maybe the recipe needs to be adjusted a little. If the melt were slightly denser or harder it might not crack when you remove it from the mold. I would suggest adding more Shea Butter (If your Shea is very hard) or maybe adding a small amount of beeswax to the mix. Just be careful not to add too much wax or it won't melt in the bath water.

Also, depending on your recipe, they may harden up if they air-dry overnight. If you have a lot of powder in the recipe, the freezer's humidity may be causing them to crumble. I made some melts once from salt, starch and oil that hardened after being exposed to air for about 24 hours.

Good luck! I hope you can find a way to firm them up.

Another great place for a big variety of skincare recipes is:


They have hundreds and hundreds of recipes, with everything from lip balm, to scrubs to fresh lotions. Top notch!

Salt and lemon juice may be too harsh for most people. But there are a lot of things that even people with sensitive skin can use to exfoliate their face.

I have very sensitive, combination skin. I use a combination of fine oatmeal and kaolin clay, moistened with either plain yogurt or milk. The clay pulls out impurities. The oatmeal exfoliates gently. The milk and yogurt contain lactic acid, which also exfoliates, but does so without scratching your skin, like salt will.

If you are exfoliating on a regular basis you'd be surprised how much a gentle exfoliator can do!  Another favorite of mine is Adzuki bean powder. You can just mix it with water and use the paste as a cleanser. It's great for blackheads!

I really love the buffalo soap. One of them looks like he is standing in the sunset. Good job!

I use Organic Virgin Coconut Cream Oil. You can get it online or at a local health food shop. It's mildy astringent, won't irritate most peoples skin and best of all is petroleum and chemical free! Oh, and it smells wonderful. Just like fresh coconuts.
