Lotion Bar Recipe

Lotion bars are particularly nice in the winter time when we all suffer with skin that takes a real beating by drying out. In the summer they’re wonderful for rehydrating skin that’s been over exposed to the sun. To use, hold the bar between your hands just until it begins to soften to the touch. Then rub over the body. Enjoy!

1 tablespoon Beeswax Beads (measured as beads)

1 tablespoon Cocoa Butter (measured melted)

1 tablespoon Palm Oil (measured melted)

1 teaspoon Jojoba Oil

2 to 3 drops from a vitamin E capsule

10 drops of essential oil or perfume fragrance oil

Melt the first four ingredients together. Remove from heat. Add vitamin E and fragrance. Pour into your mold and allow to set up. If it won’t remove from the mold easily, place it in the freezer for about 1/2 hour. Hold your hand over the back of the mold to remove the bar. Makes 1 1/2 oz.
