DIY Body Melt: Gift Idea

img_9187.jpg

I'm so excited to finally show you all this DIY project. If you're looking for something quick and fun for gifts this is definitely a great idea. I love these melt bars and what's great about them is they are super customizable. I chose to use lavender as my scent, but go ahead and experiment and make your own! These melt bars usually can cost a pretty penny at places like Lush but if you have Coconut oil and Vitamin E oil laying around like I do then all you have to do is buy a silicone mold and a pure oil scent. Add a few drops of food grade dye to your mix of you want it to be colorful and make sure to wrap these in wax paper and keep in a cool place before gifting, so they don't melt. Have fun and send me what you make on Instagram with the hashtag #NikkisHavenDIYDecember!
