#MakeItMonday- Lotion Bars

Today’s make are some moisturising Lotion Bars to keep your skin looking it’s best this Winter. Lotion bars slowly melt onto your skin when rubbed with warm hands, adding moisture and fragrance. This simple recipe uses Lavender Oil and creates a decadent and simple make.

Ingredients:

You’ll Need:

  • A Saucepan
  • Suitable Moulds (We used a silicone mould, you could use plastic but you’d need to ensure your mixture is cooler when poured.)
  • A spoon to stir with

How To Make:

 

Step One

Gently melt your coconut oil and beeswax together over a low heat. Ensure to not overheat it!

Step Two

Once melted add the sweet almond oil and mix thoroughly, then remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly. Go make yourself a cup of tea and come back! But don’t take too long, the mixture still has to be liquid!

Step Three

Now cooled, add the lavender oil and stir through thoroughly.

Step Four

Now you are ready to pour into your moulds! Be careful if you are using plastic moulds to not pour anything too hot in or your moulds will melt!

Step Five

Leave to set at room temperature for a few hours, over night ideally. Once you feel they are firm enough pop them out and they are ready to go!

 

Now use your bar whenever your skin feels like it needs a little bit of loving, and make sure not to store these in a warm place or they will melt!
