Hey guys. The Maracuja can be replaced by any light textured carrier oil. Sweet Almond, Fractionated Coconut, or Apricot would be some good choices. Unfortunately, the Jojoba Esters are harder to find a substitute for.  The next best thing would be Jojoba Wax Beads. You could also try using a very hard butter, like Cocoa Butter, but that will change the texture and aroma of the recipe.  Try experimenting, though! You may come up with a bath melt you like even better than this one.

oops opposite of what I was thinking. Thanks Emmy! I'm guessing the jojoba esters would make awesome lip balms? I am always trying to perfect my lip balm texture! If I were to use those would I sub them for beeswax or for an oil or?

Thank you - that helps alot, because I know the supplier I am thinking of carries those for sure.  I will have to order some stuff soon to try.  I really appreciate the information!

I actually haven't tried Jojoba Esters in a lip balm yet, but they might make a great addition. They are super hard but they melt very easily, which makes them an interesting ingredient all around. Smiley
