Cocoa Butter Lotion BarsPosted by: Elle Davis on February 21st, 2013
I think lotion bars are pretty great. They are so moisturizing, especially in the winter months. Not only that, this lotion bar only has 3 ingredients. Cocoa butter helps retain the moisture in your skin and has a nice chocolate smell to it. Bramble Berry is a great site to go to for all your supplies.
1/3 cup beeswax (If you prefer, you can use vegan candellila wax)
1/3 cup cocoa butter
1/3 cup coconut oil
In a small saucepan, add the above ingredients and melt on low heat, stirring frequently. I added an almond fragrance oil, about 1 teaspoon, but you can just leave them the way the are. Use any kind of mold you’d like (I used a muffin pan with cupcake holders) and pour the melted mixture evenly into the molds.
By using the muffin pan, I was able to get 4 lotion bars. It will just depend on the mold you use. Let sit for a few hours in the pan until completely cooled.
To speed up the process, put the pan in the freezer for 15 minutes.
