DIY Lotion Bars

Anyone who has ever shopped at Lush has probably fallen in love with their lotion massage bars that literally melt into your skin, leaving behind a delicate fragrance. Here is the recipe for some to try at home.  Play with the fragrance/essential oils to develop a signature scent! Your skin will thank you!

4 oz of beeswax

4 oz cocoa butter

4 oz shea butter

2 oz Jojoba oil

10-15 drops of lavender essential oil


Melt everything together in a double broiler and pour into ready made molds. Allow to harden for 24 hours, remove from the molds and allow to harden for another 24-48 hours.

Enjoy!
