Cacao (cocoa butter) – 1 Cup

Shea Butter – 1 Cup

Coconut Oil – 1/2 Cup

Grape Seed Oil – 1 TBS

Castor Oil – 1 TBS

The key is to find the ratio of oils and kinds of butter that will harden nicely. If you want a softer lotion bar, you can add more liquid oil. If you prefer a harder, less melty lotion bar, you can add more shea butter. You can easily store those melty lotions in a container and refrigerate them until you are ready to use them!

Put Your Ingredients In A Double Boiler

Create a double boiler by putting a heat resistant glass bowl into a large pan 3/4 full of water. Bring the heat to medium on your burner. Put all of your ingredients into the bowl and begin to melt them together. They will all melt into a single liquid. Once everything is melted be sure to stir it up well and then remove it from the heat.

Add Essential Oils or Scent

Once you’ve taken your melted oils off of the heat you can put it into a sturdy plastic pouring pitcher and stir in any essential oils you like. I used Premium vanilla for my lotion bars as it compliments the natural scent of the cacao butter and shea butter.

Pour Your Melted Oils Into A Mold

I highly recommend pouring your oils into a silicone mold. Silicone is so much easier than other options when it comes to taking your lotion bars out. You will want them to remove easily. You can also pour the oil into cupcake liners in a metal cupcake pan if you would like. If you do choose to use a silicone mold be sure to put something underneath it that is sturdy like a cutting board. This will make transferring the mold into the fridge much easier.

Refrigerate Your Oils For A Few Hours

Depending on the ratio of oils you used you may have a shorter or longer waiting time on your lotion bars to solidify. Mine usually take an hour or two but I will leave them in for up to 4 hours to be sure. Once your lotion bars are solidified you can take them out of the fridge and begin demolding them.

Store Your Lotion Bars In A Container Or Sachet

I prefer to store my lotion bars in a plastic container in the fridge, but you can store them however you like. You can use a sachet bag for a more solid lotion bar. These bars will last you quite a while and they make a great gift!

Enjoy Your Easy Homemade Lotion Bars!

You truly will enjoy these easy homemade lotion bars because they will seriously hydrate your skin. Use them on your legs for silky smooth radiant skin. Also use them on your hands to keep them from getting dry and chapped in the colder months. The ingredients help protect your skin as well as lock in moisture. These lotion bars contain plenty of vitamin E and will renew your skin over time!
