Lotion Bars

DIY Lotion Bars

Plant Therapy is doing 25 days of Christmas and during that time, they are sharing different DIY Recipes on their blog. Last Wednesday, Christina shared her recipe for Lotion Bars.


  • 3 ounces cacao butter
  • 3 ounces coconut oil
  • 3 ounces beeswax, mine is grated so it looks like a lot!
  • 1 Tsp arrowroot powder
  • 36 Drops Essential Oils


  1. Warm a medium pan with water on the stove
  2. Weigh all ingredients into glass dishes
  3. Place all ingredients, except essential oils, into a larger glass bowl or measuring cup
  4. Place glass bowl over pan of simmering water
  5. Melt butter, oil & wax
  6. Remove from  heat and stir in arrowroot powder whisking vigorously.
  7. Stir in 36 drops of essential oil (I used 30 drops Sweet Orange, and 6 drops Basil)
  8. Pour into silicon molds
  9. Cool
  10. Package!

I packaged 1 big snowflake with 1 small lotion bar or 3 small lotion bars to a bag.
