Homemade lotion bars

Handmade Lotion bars

Good Things Utah

Friday Feb 13 2015

¼ cup almond oil or olive oil

¼ cup coconut oil

¼ cup Shea butter or Coco butter

¼ cup beeswax (I like to use just a few flakes more)

Any of your essential oils I used about 15 drops of the Tangerine.

Plastic tins, ice cube trays or plastic bottles

1-In a double broiler add all your ingredients( except the essential oil) in the bowl and on medium heat let all the yummy ingredients melt , this will take about 15 minutes. Stirring the whole time.

2-It will be clear and a yellow color and very HOT so be so care full.

3-Take off the stove and pour into your ice cube trays or any plastic container you might have.

4- I like to put mine in the fridge for just a few minutes; it sets up really fast just a few minutes.

I like to use the smallest ice cube trays because they make the cutest gifts and with this lotion you don’t need a lot to make your skin soft and smelling yummy.

If you want a harder lotion bar just add a little bit more Beeswax.

This recipe made 54 little bars.

The lotion melts by the heat of your hand and this little bar will last a long time, perfect for your purse. I have made several batches over the years and this is my FAV.
