DIY Lotion Bars For Naturally Flawless Skin

Summer’s just around the corner. And beating the heat means dressing down and baring a little more skin. To get you prepped and primed in time for summer, we created an easy solution to your skin-care woes with these DIY succulent lotion bars, infused with Rose Bergamot synergy blend. Not only will these lotion bars have you waking up with flawless skin, but they’re also fun and perfect for gifting.


Beautiful skin starts with the right ingredients. Nutritive, anti-inflammatory and regenerative, Almond Oil is the perfect pairing to moisturizing, healing shea butter. Skin-loving essential oils complement this healthful base by combining a trifecta of nourishing EOs — Bergamot, Geranium and Patchouli — to create this one-of-a-kind lotion bar.  


Your skin will keep hydrated and refreshed all summer long!





What You Need

6 oz Soy wax or Beeswax

4 oz Almond or Apricot carrier oil

2 oz Shea butter

2 ml of Bergamot Essential Oil

2 ml of Geranium Essential Oil

1 ml Patchouli Essential Oil

1 tsp of colorant (optional)

Silicone Mold


How To

In a double boiler, melt soy wax before adding Tamanu oil. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in essential oils and your choice of colorant. You can add more than 1 tsp of colorant, depending on your desired color vibrancy. Pour the mixture into your molds and cool in the fridge until the lotion bars are fully hardened. Remove from the molds and store in a cool, dark area.


Enjoy!
