DIY Lotion Bar Recipe


8-10 drops essential oil (pick your favourite scent!)

1/3 cup Beeswax: you can use white or yellow pellets

1/4 cup Coconut oil

1/4 cup Cocoa butter or Shea butter

1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil

2 Teaspoons Mica


Start by gently melting the beeswax, coconut oil, and cocoa butter or shea butter in a double boiler. Allow the ingredients to melt together, stirring occasionally until you have a smooth, liquid mixture.

Once everything is melted and blended, remove the mixture from the heat. Add in the vitamin E oil and your chosen essential oil and mica powder. Stir thoroughly to ensure that everything is evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

Pour the liquid mixture into molds of your choice. You can use silicone molds, ice cube trays, or even muffin tins lined with parchment paper. Fill each mold to the desired level, ensuring that they are evenly filled.

Allow the lotion bars to cool and set for approximately 20 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the room temperature. Once they have solidified and cooled completely, gently pop them out of the molds.


Your homemade lotion bars are now ready to pamper your skin! Glide them over dry areas such as elbows, knees, and heels, or simply rub them between your palms to release the nourishing oils and massage into your skin.

These little blocks of skincare bliss are perfect for on-the-go hydration and make thoughtful gifts for friends and family.


You should store your lotion bars in a cool place in an aluminum tin. This keeps them solid and effective for longer. Heat can make them melt or change texture, so it's best to keep them cool to maintain their quality and performance over time.


Creating your own lotion bars is not just about skincare; it's a delightful journey into the world of natural beauty. With just a few simple ingredients, you can craft skincare treats that are tailor-made for your skin's needs.
