Learn to make a basic lotion bar in this recipe.

What you need

1 part Beeswax
1 part Cocoa Butter
1 part Coconut Oil


Essentially, these bars are compressed moisturizing lotion.

If you can not obtain coconut oil, then substitute it with apricot or other massage base oils.

Start by melting the ingredients together using a double boiler method. Once all the ingredients are melted pour the mix into suitable molds and allow to set.

Soap molds that are square and basic are great for these lotion bars as they are easy to hold on to.

* Coconut oil can be found at good health food stores.
