Lotion Bar recipe

 This was a recipe in the back of a book i just got done reading called "Lye in wait" so i thought it sounded rather easy and fun to try. i'll be trying it as soon as i can afford to get the supplies :)

"Stop 'Em In Their Tracks Lotion Bars"

3oz. Beeswax

3oz. Coconut Oil

3oz. Cocoa Butter

 Heat wax, oil and butter together over very low heat. pour into six 2oz. molds. Allow to harden and remove from molds. Given the 1:1:1 ratio of ingredients, it's very easy to increase or decrease this recipe.

Using non-deodorized cocoa butter gives the lotion bars a yummy chocolate scent, but if you can't find it you can add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of an essential oil or oil blend of your choice.

In addition to soothing "garden hands", try rubbing a lotion bar on rough feet and putting on cotton socks before going to bed.
