Butter Bath Candies

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Abby Girl

A wonderful, little treat for the bath goddesses in your life. I have made these as gifts to give away to hostess, birthdays or Christmas. The computer does not recognize "part", so I had to use teaspoon. Make as many as you want! If Shea Butter is not available, any other butter would be acceptable

These look so simple and yummy! I can't wait to try them! Q: Do you know where to buy citric acid? Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 teaspoons butter (Shea)
  • 3 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon citric acid
  • essential oil
  • epsom salts


  1. In a bowl combine the Shea butter, baking soda and citric acid. Mix using the back of a spoon until it is well mixed.
  2. Add more baking soda if it is too sticky.
  3. Take a small amount in your hands and gently knead and form into a ball, just like you do if you are using fondant in chocolate making. Add essential oils, if using.
  4. Roll and press in Epsom salts (you can color the salts if you desire).
  5. To use: Drop one or two candies in a bath and relax! Enjoy!
