Lotion Bars and Lip Balm

I thought I’d posted this already, but it seems that I didn’t! I measured by volume, and they turned out so nice! Even without essential oils, they have a very nice, mild fragrance of their own and boy are they moisturizing!

Lotion Bars:

3 parts each:

  • Coconut oil
  • Beeswax

1 part each:

  • Cocoa butter
  • Shea butter
  • Mango butter
  • Apricot kernel oil

Vitamin E: 1 teaspoon per 3 cups mixture

Optional: essential oils (I didn’t use any)

Melt all together in double boiler or mason jar placed in water and heated to BELOW simmering. Stir occasionally until fully melted. Hold on low heat for 20 minutes to temper the cocoa butter for a silkier finished product. Pour into molds and let harden at room temperature. This will be solid at winter room temperature, but will melt in warmer temperatures. Increase wax proportion for a product with higher melting point, if desired.

Lip Balm:

Same as above, but with 1/6 part more beeswax
