Lotion Bars (Solid Bath Oil Bars)
2 oz. cocoa butter or mango butter
2 oz. beeswax, refined beads
2 or 3 oz. liquid vegetable oil such as jojoba, sunflower or sweet almond
2 tsp. essential oil or fragrance oil of your choice
1/2 to 1 tsp. of Jojoba Wax
For colouring melt cocoa or mango butter and pour 2 ounces into an 8 ounce Pyrex
measuring cup. Add 2 ounces of beeswax (total of 4 ounces in cup). Add jojoba
wax. Melt together in microwave. Now add the liquid vegetable oil.
Use 2 ounces for a hard bar, which would bring your total to 6 ounces... OR use 3 ounces for a softer bar, which would bring your total to 7 ounces. Stir to mix thoroughly. Add essential or fragrance oil when mixture has cooled slightly. Pour into small soap moulds. Pop out when cool, about 2 hours. For best results, put in refrigerator a few minutes before popping out of mould.
