Lotion Bars are a soap like bar that is a compressed moisturising lotion, which is rubbed directly onto the skin without water.
What you need
1 part Beeswax
1 part Cocoa Butter
1 part Coconut Oil
5-10 drops of Peppermint essential oil
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 essential oil 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.
