This week I did a Pin Test on DIY lotion bars. You can buy them at Lush for $9.00 and up. I chose this pin...
You can find the original instructions here!
I grabbed my supplies. Which I had at home already! :) You will notice that what I used was a bit different. I used mango butter instead of shea butter, and almond oil because that is what I had already. The pickle jar has beeswax. I grated it with a microplane.
I chose to use six tbs of each. When the beeswax was mostly melted I added the mango butter. I added that almond oil when that was melted, and then added in some tropical punch essential oil.
I quickly took my mixture out of the water, and started to pour it into the molds. I had a bit leftover at the end. That's alright though I will remelt it and put it into the molds.
I popped them out of the mold. I used one already. It did start greasy, but my hands feel nice now. These would make a great gift! Fast, easy, and cheap to make a bunch!
I say this is a pin pass!
