There is a new craze going around and it is easy to make: Lotion Bars!
I had never heard of these until someone else posted about it on Facebook.
Wow, do I love them now and they are simple to make and will save you a bundle of money in the long run.
4.5 oz. Beeswax
4 oz. Shea Butter
4 oz. Coconut Oil
Molds (cupcake pans, shaped molds)
Essential oils (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a double boiler. This is what I used.
Melt while stirring over medium heat
Pour melted liquid into molds
Allow to cool completely. I sat mine outside to take advantage of the cold winter months.
To remove the lotion bars easily, place them into the freezer for 30 minutes after they have cooled.
** You can also add essential oils for fragrance and health benefits. I added the essential oils to the poured bars in the mold before the centers cooled. We used 1-2 drops of peppermint essential oil.
