I use only 4 ingredients in my lotion and 3 in my lip balm.
The lotion bar consists of Shea butter or cocoa butter, beeswax, coconut oil and vitamin e oil.
I ordered all my grandaunts from Bulk Apothecary. I used a double boiler and added 1 cup of beeswax, Shea butter and coconut oil together and melted down. Once it was melted, I pulled off the heat and added 1/2 teaspoon of vitamin e oil (just so the bar stays together better). I put into a mold I bought from Hobby Lobby and let it dry. Depending of the season, you can add more beeswax to make it harder for summer or add more coconut oil to make it softer during the winter.
Once your bar is made, pack it in a tin or wrap in paper to keep from getting everywhere.
All you have to do to use is rub the bar in your hands and your natural body heat with warm enough of the lotion off to use.
The bars are fantastic because they transport easily and last a long time. The size bar I made should last up to a year! Its also nice to know exactly what is in your beauty product instead of a 15 ingredient list that you have no clue what any of it is, besides water!
After the bar, I used the same ingredients (minus the vitamin e oil) and made lip balm tins.
