Lavender Lotion Bar Recipe: How to Make Lotion Bars
1/2 cup shea butter
1 Cup cup coconut oil
1 cup beeswax
15-20 drops Lavender essential oil
Molds-I used a simple paper water cup for my mold but you can also pick up pretty silicone molds to make your lotion bars in, here are a few that would be a great size for yours.
In a small saucepan melt beeswax and coconut oil until smooth and completely liquid.
Stir in shea butter until it has dissolved.
Remove from heat and add essential oils to scent, add oil starting with 10 drops and continue adding until the strength of the fragrance smells good to you but not overpowering.
Pour ingredients into molds and allow to set overnight.
Remove from molds and store in a cool, dry place! If they are left in a hot car or very warm spot they will melt.
