Another Use for Coconut Oil

As you know, we’re power users of organic coconut oil. Here’s another use we found today.Homemade Lotion Bars

NuiGinea cold-pressed coconut oil
Cocoa butter or shea butter
Beeswax
Vitamin E (for preservation), optional
Essential oil

Set out some moulds – either a silicone muffin tin or a regular metal one lined with plastic wrap. You can use individual molds, or line a square straight-edged baking pan with plastic wrap; you’ll cut the bars into pieces after they set.

Place a quart-sized glass jar in a small pot of water and bring to a simmer. Measure out coconut oil and cocoa butter in a 1:1 ratio. For the small batch of 4 bars pictured above, I weighed out 2 oz. of each. You could also measure out ½ cup of each.

The amount of beeswax depends on how much oil you want to apply to your skin with the bar. Add the same quantity of beeswax as each of the oils to get lots of moisturizing power; or add slightly more beeswax to make it a bit less greasy. I used 2.5 oz. beeswax.

Place all ingredients in the jar and stir constantly until melted. Remove from heat. Add the Vitamin E, if using, and 25-40 drops of your choice of essential oil. I like lavender, but citrus would be really nice, too. Stir thoroughly.

Pour into the mold of your choosing. Let sit undisturbed for several hours or overnight. Enjoy!
