WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
Depending on how firm or soft you like your lotion bars will determine how much of each ingredient to use. More beeswax will be more firm, less (or more of an oil) will be softer. SO I’d say for me, I like equal parts of each of the above ingredients BUT If you are adding in the optionals below (more beneficial for your skin) then I would put in a little bit more beeswax. (amounts will also depend on how many you are making)
So for general:
- 1 part beeswax
- 1 part coconut oil
- 1 part infused oil
If you’re adding in shea, do it last as if it heats too hot it’ll cure grainy with white pearls.
- Melting pot or double boiler
- stir stick or spoon
- silicone molds of your choosing ( I used ones similar to THESE)
- plastic wrap or cellophane / tins or containers.
- pumpkin stickers (optional) (Links below)
Melt beeswax first (using a double boiler, pan, melting pot etc – I use a wax melting pot, but anything safe should do) continue reading at the link at the bottom of this post.
