3. Silky Smooth Lotion Bars for Skin Indulgence
Making your own skincare products doesn’t mean foregoing indulgence. These lovely bars are a real hydrating treat for your skin.
½ cup beeswax pastilles or shredded beeswax or 4 x 1 oz beeswax bars
½ cup shea butter, cocoa butter, or mango butter
½ cup coconut oil
25 drops essential oils of your choice
Melt the beeswax in a double boiler (or in a bowl over gently boiling water), then add the butter of your choice. When that has melted, add the coconut oil. When all has melted remove from heat and add the essential oils. Stir to combine well. Pour into molds and leave to harden.
