DIY Coconut Oil Lotion Bars
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 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)
  1. Place all ingredients except essential oils in a quart mason jar.
  2. Bring a stock pot full of water to a boil with the uncapped jar sitting inside.
  3. Stir regularly until all ingredients melt completely.
  4. Let cool slightly. Add oils and stir.
  5. 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.
  6. Pour into silicone molds like these I found: daisies silicone mold and snowflakes silicone mold.
  7. Want to make lotion bars for Valentine's Day gifts? Try these cute heart-shaped molds.
  8. Let set completely (overnight is best). Pop out of the molds and place in mason jars, decorate and tag accordingly. :)
