Fun and Easy DIY Lotion Bars tutorial

DIY Lotion Bars tutorial

Years ago my mother had purchased some “lotion bars” at a local craft show and just loved them, but didn’t know how to make them herself.  And then there was Pinterest!  :)  I have to say that this is SUCH and easy thing to make and it’s actually kind of fun…not to mention that your kitchen will smell amazing while you’re making them!  :)  Our neighbors will be getting some for Christmas this year!

One thing to keep in mind that there are three parts to this project:

  • Use 1 part, by weight, oil (coconut, almond, or olive)
  • Use 1 part, by weight, butter (shea or cocoa butter)
  • Use 1 part, by weight, beeswax

The recipe that I have here contains the materials that I used, and you can adjust them to your liking.

Ingredients

  • 4.5 oz olive oil
  • 4.5 oz. beeswax (pellets)
  • 4.5 oz. cocoa butter (in the raw form)

Instructions

1

In a sauce pan, on low heat, melt olive oil and beeswax together; do make sure that you take your time and keep an eye on things so they do not burn.

2

Once melted, add in the cocoa butter to melt (still keeping heat on low and stirring often).

3

After everything is melted pour liquid into a silicone molds by using a plastic spoon.

4

It's winter time here and it took about a couple of hours for the bars to fully harden.

5

Once hardened, pop them out of the molds.
