Have I mentioned how much I love coconut oil? There are so many health benefits for using coconut oil, so rather than buying expensive lotions and creams from the store, Do-It-Yourself. Using ingredients right from your kitchen, try this amazing home made Coconut Oil Lotion Bars.
- 1 Cup Coconut Oil
- 1 Cup Beeswax (you can find this on Amazon)
- ½ Cup Shea Butter
- ½ Cup Almond Oil
- Essential Oils of your Choice
Place all ingredients, except the essential oils in a quart mason jar. Boil a pot full of water placing the uncapped jar sitting inside. Make sure to stir regularly until all the ingredients have melted completely.
Let it cool down, just a tab and add in the essential oils and stir. Pour into silicone molds.
Once they have fully dried, I like to let them try overnight, pop out the molds and place them in Mason Jars for storage.
These are great for DIY holiday gifts, decorate the jars, add a little tag and you’re done!
