DIY: Sweet and Silky Lotion Bars
Recipe type: DIY
  • ¼ c coconut oil
  • ¼ c shea butter
  • ¼ c beeswax
  • 1 tsp vitamin E
  • 20 drops of essential oils ( I love peppermint or lavender essential oils for this recipe!)
  1. Fill a small pot with water and bring to a boil.
  2. Place a heat-safe glass jar or measuring cup inside the pot and add the following ingredients: coconut oil, beeswax, and shea butter.
  3. Use a butter knife or wooden spatula to stir the ingredients together as they melt.
  4. Once melted, remove the glass dish and allow to cool for just a few minutes before adding the vitamin E and essential oils. Stir thoroughly.
  5. Carefully pour the liquid into the soap molds of your choice. Allow to cool and harden.
  6. Once they are completely cooled, pop out of the molds and rub on dry areas for extra sweet and silky skin!
