Lotion Bar Recipe
With Winter lasting longer this year, my skin has really been put through the wringer. This cold dry air has really done a number on my hands and legs. I am out in the elements a lot to play tennis, so I have been putting lotion and creams on left and right.
That is until I made these awesome homemade lavender lotion bars. Not only do I have lotion in a bar form, but I can keep this little baby with me and use it as often as I want. Check out this easy lotion bar recipe.
Homemade Lavender Lotion Bars
The other good thing about this lotion bar recipe is that they are small and easily fit in your purse (versus a large tube of something) and you can get through airport security with it because it’s not a liquid. That’s a bonus for me because we probably fly four to five times a year, or more!
How to Make Lotion Bars
This recipe is super easy and you can make a ton of these lotion bars and give them as gifts, or just to keep on hand. Here are the supplies (I’ve included my affiliate links) you will need to make these lotion bars:
- 1/4 cup Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- Silicone Mold
- 1/4 cup Shea Butter
- 1/4 cup 100% ORGANIC Beeswax
- Lavender essential oil
- 1/4 tsp Vitamin E Oil
Carefully melt the coconut oil, Shea butter, and beeswax until they are all in a liquid form. This can be done by placing your ingredients into a bowl and placing the bowl over hot water. It’s also easier if you grate the beeswax before melting.
Once melted, add in the Vitamin E oil and stir well.
Homemade Lavender Lotion Bar Recipe
Allow to cool slightly and then begin to add in the Lavender essential oil. I probably use about 15-20 drops. Lavender alone feels great on my skin.
Once everything is mixed, place them into a silicone mold and allow to harden. You can also add in a little coloring before pouring if you want your bars slightly tinted.
I LOVE how soft my skin feels after using these, and I love the smell of the Lavender. Whether for yourself or as a gift, put these Homemade Lavender Lotion Bars on your to-do list! It’s the best lotion bar recipe EVER!
