DIY HEALING LOTION BAR
I have decided to put some of my favourite essential oils into a body lotion bar. As I am breaking away from plastic bottles and harsh chemicals I decided to make my very own body lotion bar. Now if you aren’t sure what this is, don’t worry because that is what it is. It is basically what the name says, it is a lotion in the form of a bar. Not only does is not have no plastic bottle, it also has no harsh chemicals and I have added some essential oils to give it a good boost. The Rosemary essential oil and lavender essential oil are great for the nervous system, the melaleuca acts as an antiseptic and I have added On Guard which is a blended essential oil that is great for immune support. Now this is really easy to make and I really hope some of you try my recipe out.
For the recipe you will need:
30ml Bees wax
30ml Shea butter
3 drops Rosemary essential oil
4 drops Melaleuca oil
4drops Lavender essential oil
3 drops On Guard blended essential oil
In a bowl melt the Jojoba or the Sweet Almond oil, Shea butter and Bees wax in the microwave or in a double boiler till melted, then stir and add the essential oils of your choice and place into silicon moulds or a lined container. Set aside until the bar has hardened. If you want to rush the setting time then just place it in the fridge.
