Oatmeal and Olive Oil Bath Truffles

Oatmeal and Olive Oil Bath Truffles | Homan at Home

Bath truffles just sound decadent, don’t they? Like something you’d pop in your mouth while enjoying a nice relaxing bath. While I completely support the eating of truffles (here and here are some great recipes), these truffles are something you pop in your bath rather than your mouth. 

These are sometimes called bath melts, but whatever you call them, they are a luxurious experience. With only a few ingredients, they take practically no time to whip up. Once melted in your bath, they release the oils and lotions inside to create a soothing, moisturizing bath. The olive oil and baby lotion renews your skin’s moisture, while the oatmeal and milk soothe angry skin. These feel great for dry winter skin, or for soaking in after sunburn. They also make great gifts and you can vary the experience by changing the scent. I used both I like vanilla or peppermint, depending on my mood. 

They’re also really cute molded in a soap or ice cube mold. I didn’t have either of those, so I went with the standard truffle shape, but this craft is easy, cheap, and versatile – the best kind, don’t you think?

should these dry and get hard or are they supposed to be soft?

Diane Homan

They are soft when they’re first made, but they should dry out if you leave them out.
