What You’ll Need:
2 oz White Beeswax
4 oz Deodorized Cocoa Butter
2.1 oz Coconut Oil
1.2 oz Apricot Kernel Oil
0.7 oz Jojoba Oil
0.3 oz Evening Primrose Extract
0.3 oz Rose Clay
0.2 oz Tapioca Powder
0.1 oz Sandalwood Vanilla Fragrance Oil
0.1 oz Vitamin E Oil
Microwave Safe Bowl
1) Add your beeswax and oils together in a microwaveable safe container. (We like using the easy pour container.) Heat in microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds then stir. Continue heating for 30 second bursts until the beeswax is fully melted.
2) Add in your deodorized cocoa butter and stir until melted. If you still have pieces floating around, put in microwave on 30 second bursts.
3) Once your beeswax, oils & cocoa butter are combined and melted, add your extract, fragrance oil, vitamin e oil, rose clay and tapioca powder. Using the mini mixer works wonderfully in mixing all the ingredients together.
4) Pour into your choice or molds. Spray with rubbing alcohol and let sit until fully solidified.
Because this is a homemade lotion bar that doesn’t have petroleum in it, you will feel a slight ‘greasy’ feeling for about 5-10 minutes. Although some people don’t like the ‘greasy’ feeling, the oils and butters are rich in linoleic and oleic acids. Which is a good thing! Those fatty acids provide our skin with lots of moisture and nutrients.
**If you’re having a hard time getting your lotion bar out of its mold, try sticking it in the freezer for a couple minutes.**
