A homemade lotion bar infused with lavender oil. Simply warm up in your hands to activate and rub all over dry skin.
Makes (3) 2-ounce bars.
2 ounces beeswax
2 ounces coconut oil
2 ounces shea butter or cocoa butter
10-20 drops lavender essential oil
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the beeswax, coconut oil, and shea butter just until they turn to liquid. Immediately remove from the heat.
Stir in the essential oil and pour into 2-ounce silicone molds. Set aside until cool.
Unmold the bars and store in a cool, dry place. To use, rub over skin and then rub in as you would your daily lotion.
Notes: You can increase the ratio of beeswax to shea butter and coconut oil to make a firmer bar for hotter temperatures.
