Beauty Recipes - LOTION BARS (or Solid Bath
4 ounces kokum, mango, shea or deodorized cocoa butter
4 ounces beeswax, refined beads, yellow or white
4 or 5 ounces liquid vegetable oil such as jojoba, sunflower,
2-4 teaspoons of essential oil or fragrance oil of your choice
1 tablespoon of Jojoba Wax Spheres in color of your choice
Melt butter first and pour into 16 oz Pyrex measuring cup.
Add the beeswax beads and the colored jojoba spheres. Melt
together in a microwave. Now add the liquid vegetable oil.
Use 4 ounces for a hard bar, or 5 ounces for a softer bar.
Stir to mix thoroughly. Add essential oil or fragrance oil
when mixture has cooled slightly. Pour into small soap molds.
Pop out when cool, about two hours. For best results, put
in refrigerator for a few minutes before popping out of mold.

Use sunflower oil or jojoba, refined when you want a lotion
bar that absorbs readily into your skin. Avocado is great
for cuticles and for a heavier, more moisturizing bar.
