Looking for a home spa experience that will keep your skin moisturized in the spring? Then try a coconut rose bath truffles DIY. With just a few simple ingredients, you can whip up a batch of these moisturizing oils that are ideal for spring gifting. They smell divine and are so easy to make. Here’s how to do it!
Step 1: Gather your ingredients. You’ll need: 1/2 cup of coconut oil, 1/4 cup of sugar, 10-15 drops of essential oil(s) (lavender, rose geranium, rosemary will all work wonderfully), 2 tablespoons honey, 1/3 cup of baking soda, 1/4 cup of dried rose petals (bonus: dried calendula) and 3 tablespoons of Epsom salts (not pictured).
Step 2: Grab your food processor or clean coffee grinder, and pulse together the sugar and a dried rose petals (and a pinch of dried calendula, if you have it handy).
When you’re done, it should look like this.
Step 3: Transfer the sugar-rose petal mixture to a medium sized glass or metal bowl and then add the remaining ingredients.
Step 4: Mix it all together, then place the bowl in the fridge for an hour.
Step 5: Once the mixture has firmed up, use a metal spoon or melon baller to scoop up a couple tablespoons of the oil mixture. Roll it into a ball shape between your palms, just as you would if you were making cookies.
Step 6: Place finished truffles on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet or tray. When you’re all done, you should have about 15-20 1-1 1/2-inch truffles.
Step 7: Pop the tray of truffles into the freezer for 30-45 minutes. When they are set, they’ll be hard like marbles.
Step 8: Transfer your finished truffles to a plastic or glass container and store in the fridge until you are ready to use or give away.
Tip: This recipe is easy to customize! Feel free to mix and match the dried floral and essential oil components. A coconut-lavender truffle would be lovely, as would coconut-chamomile.
