I love when I find ways to swap out store bought products with homemade products and these diy lotion bars are simple, soft and smell divine! These lavender lotion bars would make a perfect Mothers Day gift for the special Mom’s in your life. I used my Young Living lavender essential oil but lemon would be a fun, fresh and bright alternative.
1 part Beeswax*
1 part Almond Oil*
1 part Coconut Oil*
Not sure what 1 equal part is? Here is an easy way to figure out how much you need. Take a measuring cup and fill it with 4 cups of water. Pour the water into the molds you plan on using to make the bars. You can find some fun silicone molds on the internet. I used a fun mini cake mold from Cake Boss. Subtract the amount of water left in the cup from how much you started out with, and divide your answer by three! My mold held a total of 12 ounces of water. I ended up needing about 4 ounces of each ingredient.
Place a small saucepan with 1-2 cups of water on the stove. Place a heat resistant bowl on top of the saucepan to act as a double boiler. Bring the water to a small boil. Melt your beeswax in the bowl until it turns into a liquid. Once melted, add your almond oil and coconut oil stir until combine and they are all the same consistency. You may also melt your ingredients in the microwave at 30 second increments. Pour your liquid into the molds. Allow to cool completely before removing.
