I love that I had another relaxing and Self Care Sunday.
- Read chapters from Peaches for Monsieur le Curé by Joanne Harris. As I was reading and becoming reacquainted with some of the characters from Chocolat, I found myself visualising the characters from the movie, i.e. Johnny Depp as Roux and Juliette Binoche as Vianne.
- I stopped reading and ended up watching Chocolat on DVD again.
Inspired by the movie I made a batch of bath melts.
Don’t you think they look like white chocolate?
Chocolat Bath Melts
56 grams of cocoa butter
1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 cup citric acid
30 drops of lavender
20 drops of geranium essential oil
Place the cocoa butter in a clean bowl. Place the bowl over boiling water in a pot and melt the cocoa butter. When the cocoa butter has melted remove the bowl from the heat. Sift the baking soda and citric acid into the cocoa butter. Mix well and add essential oils. Mix again and spoon mixture into molds*. Place in freezer until solid or leave in a cool place until set. These bath melts smell divine and I can’t wait to use them in future baths. I would only use 1 to 2 melts per bath.
What inspired you today?
*I used chocolate molds for this. I don’t use these molds for food use at all.
