Young Living Lotion Bars

These homemade hydrating essential oil lotion bars will make  your summer so easy – especially if you are traveling.

I just returned from a 13 day trip to Australia – it was A-MA-ZING!!  Saw many wonderful places and met some beautiful people too.

But, do you know what happened to me?  My lotion bottle blew up in my checked bag – thank goodness I pack in plastic bags!!  So as soon as I got home I made these homemade lotion bars for my next travel adventure so I can be sure to not have that mis-hap again.

These are easy to make.

Simple to pack and not worry they will explode when under pressure.

Super moisturizing for your body – the warmth of your body helps to melt the natural emollients and the added essential oils smells wonderful and help sooth, smooth, moisturize and hydrate hands, feet, elbows and more!

This homemade lotion bar recipe with essential oils is the bomb – be sure to get some made before your next trip or excursion to the beach or desert area.  You will thank me!

I went through my oily stash and decided to use Stress Away, Joy and Cedarwood (known for it’s calming effects) and I wasn’t disappointed.

Recipe:

 Directions
  1. Combine coconut oil, beeswax, shea butter, and cocoa butter in a 16-ounce glass measuring cup.
  2. Place in a pot with water that rises to halfway up the measuring cup
  3. Bring water to a boil, stirring frequently until ingredients are completely melted.
  4. Remove measuring cup from the pot.
  5. Add essential oils and vitamin E oil and stir until completely combined.
  6. Immediately pour into molds.
  7. Let sit for several hours until they are firm
  8. Once cooled, carefully remove the lotion bars from the molds.
  9. Store in a cool, dry place.  I place in small plastic bags for easy on the go use (I use these)

Great to have on hand in your purse or overnight bag.   These are so portable and convenient – helping to keep skin smooth and soft – even while out and about this summer.
