Cocoa Butter Lotion Bars

I think lotion bars are pretty great. They are so moisturizing, especially in the winter months. Not only that, this lotion bar only has 3 ingredients. Cocoa butter helps retain the moisture in your skin and has a nice chocolate smell to it. Bramble Berry is a great site to go to for all of your supplies.

1/3 cup beeswax (If you prefer, you can use candellila wax that’s vegan)

1/3 cup cocoa butter

1/3 cup coconut oil

In a small saucepan, add the above ingredients and melt on low heat, stirring frequently. I added an almond fragrance oil, about 1 teaspoon, but you can just leave them the way the are. Use any kind of mold you’d like (I used a muffin pan with cupcake holders) and pour the melted mixture evenly into the molds.

By using the muffin pan, I was able to get 4 lotion bars. It will just depend on the mold you use. Let sit for a few hours in the pan until completely cooled.

To speed up the process, put the pan in the freezer for 15 minutes.

    I must admit I was slightly disappointed- after those amazing looking peanut-chocolate thingies last week, at first glance I thought these were going to be some new white chocolate goodies. I suppose nice soft skin is good, too, though…sigh. (I will come back and read it again when I am not in post-birthday-cupcakes-serious-sugar-crash and I am sure I will be much more appropriately appreciative!) 😉

    Looks delicious and I’m sure it smells good, is it organic? I’ve been experiencing a hard time in finding a right and perfect skin care product for my sensitive skin.

      The products I used in the lotion bars were organic so yes. 🙂 I also have sensitive skin and it hasn’t given me any problems.
