To be honest, we really don’t celebrate it. Sometimes I’ll make some kind of pink or red food for dinner. Or I’ll get the kids a little bit of candy to celebrate.
But the hubby and I don’t go out or do much of anything special. In the past, it was too hard to get a sitter. When you have two kids with autism, sitters are pretty much not an option.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t show each other how much you appreciate each other with a couples massage to help each other relax.
These Valentine’s Day heart massage melts are perfect for a massage. They melt on contact and soak into your skin quickly, so you won’t feel oily after your massage.
I tried a few different ratios of oils and beeswax to make these massage melts. I wanted them to not fall apart, but I also wanted them to melt fairly easily.
These massage melts melt quickly when they touch skin. The oils soak in quickly, so they won’t leave you greasy.
I used this cute 8- and 16-bit heart candy mold from Rosanna Pansino (Nerdy Nummies). You can get just the heart mold as an add on item on Amazon, or you can get this mold plus the gemstone mold and candy melts for not much more.
You can certainly double this recipe to make more if you want.
If you’re making these to sell and you want to ship them, you might want to swap the mango butter for shea butter or cocoa butter or add more beeswax.
Mango butter is high in vitamins A and C for your skin. It also has essential fatty acids to nourish dry skin.
I chose apricot oil because it’s a dry oil, so it’s not greasy like other oils. It soaks into the skin quickly, making it perfect for a massage melt.
Apricot oil also has vitamins A and E to nourish your skin and essential fatty acids to moisturize your skin.
FRACTIONATED COCONUT OIL
I also used fractionated coconut oil because it’s a light, dry oil. It gets absorbed by your skin quickly, so it won’t leave you feeling greasy.
It’s high in antioxidants to protect your skin, too.
Beeswax is what makes this a solid bar. Without it, it would just be a massage oil.
Beeswax is naturally anti-inflammatory, so it’s great for your skin. It forms a light barrier on top of your skin, trapping the oils next to your skin.
VERY BERRY COBBLER SCENT
I used one of my new natural fragrance blends from Crafty Bubbles called Very Berry Cobbler. It’s an amazing berry scent. Normally, I wouldn’t go for a bakery scent or a food scent for something like this, but this smells light and fun, perfect for Valentine’s Day.
