Make Your Own Lotion

My daughter T makes her own hand lotion. Rub it on after bathing or whenever. Your body heat will soften it.
Hard Lotion Bars for Dry Skin
Made On

Ingredients: beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil
Optional: add drops of favorite essential oil scent

Combine equal amounts of the ingredients in a double boiler. Melt, stir well, and pour into molds. Molds can be plastic or metal. Ice cube trays and cupcake pans both work great. This mold works well.

Lip balms may require extra coconut oil stirred in before pouring. You may want to test some on a plate (drop from dropper, cool, test on lips) before filling tubes.
IMPORTANT: for easy clean up, wipe out the bowl with a paper towel while it's still hot. Then wash with hot, soapy water. For easy removal of lotion from container, place in freezer for 30 minutes and it should pop right out.
