DIY: a natural massage bar, perfect for Valentine’s Day!
Have you ever heard of massage bars? As an alternative to traditional oils, massage bars are perfect for gentle, sensual and satisfying massages. We encourage you to try this simple DIY recipe; the perfect addition to a Valentine’s Day guaranteed to be nothing short of total relaxation and pleasure.
You will need:
- 3 grams of beeswax (preferably locally sourced, for example, from our Quebec partner Les Âmes Fleurs)
- 45 grams of shea butter (available soon in our online store and in pharmacies and natural health stores)
- 12 grams of Sweet Almond oil
- 10 drops of Essencia’s Seduction, Passion Exotica or Musk fragrance, whichever you prefer
How do you make the Essencia scented massage bar?
- In a small saucepan, melt the beeswax using a double boiler.
- Once the wax has melted, add the shea butter and mix gently.
- When everything has melted together and the mixture is smooth, remove it from the heat and add the sweet almond oil.
- Add the Essencia fragrance of your choice and mix well.
- Pour the mixture into a small mould (ideally made from silicone) and let it cool completely. Once cooled, carefully remove your massage bar from the mould and store it in the fridge until needed.
Using your massage bar is a piece of cake, simply glide the bar directly over the body and watch as it gently melts on contact. We bet this will make a great addition to your steamy Valentine’s Day!
Of course, love can be celebrated any day of the year, but Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to remind those we love of just how much we care! With these great gift ideas and this natural DIY, there’s no doubt that you’ll enjoy a love-filled day.
