maker checklist

  • silicon molds, fun mini shapes
  • craft stick
  • double boiler or microwave
  • 2 tbs Beeswax
  • 1 tbs shea or cocoa butter
  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • essential oil for scent
  • rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle
  • skin-safe glitter

instructions

1

melt the beeswax, in a microwave or a double boiler. mix in the shea butter (or cocoa butter) and coconut oil while it is hot.

2

add a couple drops of essential oils for scent. mmmmm!

3

spray the mold with rubbing alcohol. this will prevent air bubbles from forming. we used silicone mold ice trays with fun shapes! like the alien-inspired ones and the pineapples, palm trees and cacti.

4

pour your lotion mixture into the mold.

5

sprinkle with skin-safe glitter. (optional)

6

pop the molds in the fridge to cool. then pop the mini lotion bars out to use.

enjoy your lotion bars: use on the body but avoid the face! store in the fridge 🙂
