Nourishing Lotion Bar Recipe
These homemade lotion bars melt slightly when rubbed against the warmth of your skin, leaving a layer of moisture that softens and protects. They’re perfect in the dry winter months to prevent and help heal dry, cracked skin on the feet, elbows, knees and hands. Can also be used in the summertime as an after-sun soother.
55g/2oz Candelilla wax or Beeswax
120g/4oz Shea butter or Cocoa butter
120g/4oz Organic Coconut oil
5ml Carrot root infused oil
1/8th tsp. Natural Vitamin E
Organic Essential oils:
Sweet orange 20 drops
Geranium 6 drops
Lavender Bulgarian 6 drops
Frankincense 3 drops
Melt in wax, butter and oils in a double boiler.
When completely melted add the essential oils, mix well and pour into silicone moulds.
Cool fully before unmoulding them.
How To Use Lotion Bars
Rub lotion bars between your hands or on the desired area (elbows, feet, knees, etc.), then massage into skin as needed.
