This is why I always look for DIY creations that offer multiple levels of value and creating Essential Oil Moisturizing Lotion Bars are the perfect gift.
They feel great...
They smell great…
They perform wonders…
And everyone loves the ability to use this product over time.
A great recipe, which is also easy and inexpensive is the following:
-⅔ cup beeswax
-½ cup coconut oil
-½ cup cocoa butter
-1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
-15 drops of essential oil
-Add all ingredients (minus the essential oils) into a large glass jar and place the jar in a saucepan with 1.5 inches of boiling water.
-Make sure to stir all of the ingredients until they are completely combined and melted and then remove from heat and rest for 3 minutes.
-Add essential oils and stir until everything is mixed together and then pour into a silicone mold. Let them cool and then you can pop them out of the mold and wrap them in plastic wrap or fun paper.
When trying to figure out which essential oils to use, I recommend considering peppermint, lavender, or even grapefruit.
