DIY - Lotion Bars!

Hello angels
As promised, here I am with an awesome DIY - Homemade Lotion Bars! Now who can resist that??
Natural organic soaps and lotion bars has always, without fail drawn my attention.  Most of us find the  fragrance, texture and packaging so irresistible, that we got to have 'em! so here goes.....

Lotion Bar is simply body butter in solid form. One can scrub them onto your body before sleep, after a shower or whenever your skin requires moisturizing.

Recipe to lotion bars is almost every where! (this I realized recently..) So I did my bit of researching and gave it a try!

Ingredients

Beeswax 3 oz
Shea butter 3 oz
Jojoba oil ( I used 5 drops)
Grapefruit essential oil ( depends on your preference between mild or strong fragrance)

Additional choices
Sweet almond oil
Coconut oil
Any other essential oil your heart desires




Process

Melt the beeswax in a double boiler under medium flame. Then, add the Shea butter. Shea butter demands a little more patience and attention while melting. So stir stir stir stir....

Once done, take the mixture off the flame and add your choice of oils. Give them a good stir and immediately pour them into your molds.

The bars require an hour to set and then... Taadaa! your very own lotion bars are ready for a scrub! (I prefer silicon molds - silicon cupcake molds were used by me!)







Gift 'em
They make excellent gifts. Personalize them by imprinting initials or by using favorite essential oil. Wrap them up with beautiful tissue gift papers, to give it an extra 'wow' factor...

Let me know if you guys managed to make your own lotion bars. I would love to hear!

HAPPY NEW YEAR...!!
