I just discovered this great natural recipe over at TheWellnessMama.com and had to share. These are lotion bars – not soap – and are not intended for bathing use! They are made with all natural ingredients: A base of beeswax, coconut oil and shea / mango / cocoa butter – and then a dash of essential oils. Use these bars in the same way as a moisturizing / massage lotion – only they are solid. However, a little will melt to the touch, so the idea is that you apply them to the area you want to moisturize or treat!
Note that you can customize the essential oil components to your liking! TheWellnessMama has made a menthol / arnica / peppermint version for tired muscles – however there’s nothing to stop you including any of the other essential oils associated with skin care instead! I’d also suggest using the best quality ingredients you can source for the base – because your skin deserves the best!
Note also that it’s essential to use the “double pan” technique when warming beeswax. Don’t be tempted to skip it. The outer pan contains water (which should be simmered but not boiled), the inner contains the beeswax and other ingredients. The reason for this is because it is very easy to overheat beeswax and make it start to burn – and the water controls the temperature that the beeswax is subjected to. As there is heating and hot water involved, this project should of course have adult supervision.
Here is the link to the full tutorial, including amounts of all the ingredients and a few extra tips: http://wellnessmama.com/8111/pain-relief-lotion-bars/
