Winter is a time for dry skin and not enough moisture. For me, for example, this is always the number one problem in dealing with my skin in the cold season. One of the best and most fragrant solutions are massage tiles for the body. And so, I suggest you look at the recipe for a massage tile, found on one American site, a link to which I will leave at the bottom of the article. This is a fragrant tile that you want to bite off.
How to make a massage tile for the body:
- 1 cup (American equivalent – 240 ml) – unrefined cocoa butter
- ½ tsp coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon – almond oil
- 6-10 drops – essential oil of your choice (here you can choose essential oil depending on your skin type)
- silicone mold for massage tiles
- tanks for storage of finished tiles (preferably sealed)
Cocoa Massage Tile Recipe
- Combine the ingredients in a bowl and melt them in a water bath, or in a microwave. You can also use a hairdryer, as shown in the photo. The main thing – it does not bring to a boil and do not overheat your mixture.
- If your mold is large in size, it is better to place it immediately in the baking tray, and then pour melted butter into the mold.
- Now you can put the form on the baking sheet in the fridge. Allow the tiles to completely harden.
- Now carefully remove your tiles from the mold and fold them into an airtight container and place the jar in the refrigerator.
