I have seen tons of different recipes on Pinterest for Do-It-Yourself Lotion bars. I have always wanted to make my own, it just seemed that most of them required a ton of different ingredients. When I came across a pin that said you could make them with only three ingredients I had to try it.
- 1 part Canola oil (you can also use olive oil)
- 1 part Coconut oil
- 1 part bees wax (we grated ours so it would melt faster)
After measuring out your equal parts, add them to a saucepan and heat on low/medium. When everything is melted together it is ready for you to pour it into a mold. Once it sets up it is done! Easy Peasy!
- To make your lotion bars easy to remove from your mold you can stick them into the freezer for a few minutes until they are cold and they will pop right out!
- Also, don’t store your lotion bars in direct sunlight or heat. They are a solid lotion bar but they are made to “melt” so that you can rub them onto your skin… I keep mine in the fridge 🙂
These are definitely a Pin-Proved-it! They are easy to make, they smell wonderful, and they make my skin SUPER soft! Plus These would make great and inexpensive Christmas gifts, especially for teachers!
