Cold & Flu Lotion Bar

Lotion Bars are a soap like bar that is a compressed moisturising lotion. You rub it directly onto the skin without water.

Cold & Flu Lotion Bar

What you need

1 part Beeswax
1 part Cocoa Butter
1 part Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp of Vicks Vapour Rub


If you can not obtain coconut oil, then substitute it with apricot or other massage base oils.

Start by melting the ingredients together using a double boiler method. Once all the ingredients are melted, add the vapour rub and stir through.

Pour the mix into suitable molds. Soap molds that are square and basic are great for these lotion bars as they are easy to hold on to.

* Coconut oil can be found at good health food stores.

  1. Does this work with colds and flus? My mum and sister have a bit of a cough thing happening and I was just wondering…

  2. You can get small tubes of cocoa butter in the pharmacy section of walmart. Also you can get the coconut oil in the food section of walmart.

  3. ” a part” goes by how much you are making…it’s up to you. If you decide one part is one teaspoon…the go by that for the recipe. If you are making more at a time…a part…could mean a tablespoon etc.
