What’s a lotion bar? This is a body cream in a solid rather than liquid form. The benefits are:

  • They last forever, or at least a very long time
  • They are solid at room temperature
  • So there’s no mess from spills, no fuss and no waste
  • So they are safe for kids
  • They melt on contact with the skin
  • Less greasy than lotions
  • You can use them on damp, warm skin in the bath or shower
  • No need to rinse off
  • They are easy to make
  • They are cheap
  • There are no harmful chemicals
  • They make great gifts

As if you needed any more convincing, there are basically only 3 ingredients, unless you want to get fancy and add some essential oil for their fragrance and therapeutic properties.

      Instructions
      1. Weigh equal quantities of beeswax, Coconut Oil and whichever butter you are using. Grate the beeswax or break it up into smaller pieces or use beeswax pellets.
      2. Melt in a double boiler or in a glass dish over boiling water, stirring regularly until well combined.
      3. If you are adding essential oils, let the mixture cool a bit before adding roughly 7-10 drops for every cup of the mixture. Stir to mix.
      4. Carefully pour the mixture into moulds. Soap moulds work well, especially the silicone ones, as do silicone cup-cake moulds or muffin tins. Alternatively, empty stick deodorant containers make a handy substitute.
      5. Pop the bars out of the moulds when set.
      Recipe Notes

      Voilà, your very own artisanal lotion bars are ready for use.  If you are giving them away as gifts, decorate with hand written labels threaded with a pretty ribbon.
