Homemade Lotion Bar

I am a big fan of DIY Health and Beauty! My sister actually found this pin and asked me if we could make it.  So, on her last day of her visit, we made a batch.

Easy = yes

Time = 1 hour tops

I used 1:1:1 Natural Beeswax, Vegetable Shortening, Sunflower/Olive Oil. Then added ginger, grapeseed oil, a little Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter, and almond oil. The addition of the almond oil made the concoction boil like crazy… Need to look into that a little more.

It made 3 regular molds, filled two glass (about 4 oz) jars, 2 tiny (1 oz) plastic containers – for lip balm, and then added the rest to a 2 cup plastic container. So the yield was quite nice, especially for the easability.
