Single Use Solid Massage Bars

The holiday season is coming and sometimes chaos and stress can drive us up the wall. With all of this craziness going around, I think it is very important to remember ourselves. Don’t forget to take time to relax and relieve all of that tension. I formulated this massage bar as a way to pamper any stressed holiday host (or hostess).

Collect needed items:

Ingredients
Grapeseed Oil
Mango Butter
Candelilla Wax
Sweet Almond Oil
Regular Cocoa Butter
Vanilla Cream Fragrance
Equipment
Microwave safe container for weighing ingredients
Scale
Transfer Pipettes
Spoons
Small candy molds

Recipe: (Makes 6.75 ounces)

Recipe in ounces
2.81 ounces Grapeseed Oil
0.71 ounces Mango Butter
1.06 ounces Candelilla Wax
1.06 ounces Sweet Almond Oil
1.06 ounces Regular Cocoa Butter
0.05 ounces Vanilla Cream Fragrance Oil
Recipe in grams
80 grams Grapeseed Oil
20 grams Mango Butter
60 grams Candelilla Wax
30 grams Sweet Almond Oil
30 grams Regular Cocoa Butter
1.5 grams Vanilla Cream Fragrance Oil
Recipe in Percentages
41.63% Grapeseed Oil
10.52% Mango Butter
15.70% Candelilla Wax
15.70% Sweet Almond Oil
15.70% Regular Cocoa Butter
0.74% Vanilla Cream Fragrance Oil

Measure all your ingredients into a microwave safe container. Gently melt all ingredients. Add any desired fragrance, mix well and then pour into desired molds. I used small candy molds to make these individual hearts.

Notes:
If you desire colored massage bars, you can use a small amount of the Oil Soluble Lip Colors. You don’t want to use too much of these colors because you don’t want to color the skin!

This massage bar will smell like a vanilla chocolate truffle. Yum! Absolutely fantastic for after the shower or any other time. Make sure you choose a small candy mold that will be an excellent size for a one time use. These massage bars will need complete labeling or someone just might think that it is chocolate!

Enjoy!

    1. Allie-SilverMoon,
      You will double the amount of Beeswax. This recipe works wonderfully with doubling the Candelilla Wax to equal the Beeswax.

  2. I love this recipe, since we received some as part of the Halloween swap. I want to use this as a bath melt rather than a single use bar, so I’m thinking of not putting any wax in, as I tried to melt them in the bathtub and they don’t melt. Could I just substitute more cocoa butter and mango butter (1/2 and 1/2) for the Candellila wax? Would they still mold okay?

    Thanks!

  3. Andee,

    Well, I tried not having any Candelilla or beeswax, and just adding more of the butters, but it never really hardened and didn’t come out of the molds even after freezing. So, I remelted, added 1/2 the amount of beewax and also 30 grams of cornstarch. This firmed up better and came out of some of the molds. I’ll see what it’s like in a day or so when it’s completed hardening.

    Thanks for your help!
