I may have a new favorite homemade gift: DIY coconut oil lotion bars! I absolutely love them and I hope those who get them as a gift this year will love them, too!
I just purchased a huge starter kit of essential oils (like this one HERE), so I’m going to be creating a lot more awesome beauty stuff.
I’m loving the oils, do you use essential oils yet? If so, what’s your favorite? Mine is lemon for now. I’m sure that’ll change when I spend more time with my new ones.
DIY Coconut Oil Lotion Bars
1 cup coconut oil (buy some HERE)
1 cup beeswax (I use pellets from Amazon)
1/2 cup shea butter
1/2 cup almond oil
Essential oils of choice (lemon, Joy and lavender are all great choices) (I buy mine HERE)
Place all ingredients except essential oils in a quart mason jar. Bring a stock pot full of water to a boil with the uncapped jar sitting inside. Stir regularly until all ingredients melt completely.
Let cool slightly. Add oils and stir. Some of my favorite oils to use are Joy and lavender, both of which come in the Premium Starter Kit. Learn more about it HERE.
Want to make lotion bars for Valentine’s Day gifts? Try these cute heart-shaped molds.
Let set completely (overnight is best). Pop out of the molds and place in mason jars, decorate and tag accordingly.
