Melting Massage Balls

Melting Massage Balls

This tutorial shows you how to make a melting massage ball, that melts as it touches your warm skin. Keep these in the fridge and pull one out whenever you need.

What you need

1/2 cup of shea butter
Essential oils of choice (optional)
Ice cube tray or suitable mold


Start by melting down your Shea Butter. I used the microwave at 30 second intervals for my butter. Next stir in 10-15 drops of an essential oil of your choice. I used a tired legs blend but you could use whatever you like.


Pour the mixture into the ice cube tray. Allow several hours to set in the fridge. Once set place into an air tight container and store in the fridge.


When required, use one block and watch as the luxurious butter melts as it touches your skin.


  1. Both ideas sound great what can you used instead of essential oils

  2. Love the idea. Did anyone try using coconut oil?

  3. Lisa Reinecke says

    Great idea! These would be really cute if poured into a shaped ice cube tray.

  4. Has anyone tried this with coconut oil? Coconut oil is solid until you raise the temp to 76 degrees. I’d think it would be a nice substitute if you don’t have shea butter.
