These Moisturizing Orange Lotion Bars are a really great way to keep your hands moisturized, without carrying around a liquid lotion that has the potential to leak and make a mess. They have great benefits for your body as well, especially if you are using pure essential oils on top of the great ingredients in the base of this recipe. They are easy to make, and cost very little, too, so they are perfect to make for gifts or just for keeping a stash handy for your own household!

Directions

  1. Begin by starting your water in the bottom half of your double boiler. I find that about 2/3 of the way full works great, over medium – high heat to start out.
  2. If you need to chop up your beeswax or shea butter, do that at this time so it’s all set to go, and go ahead and add the beeswax into the top half of the boiler pan and get it starting to melt.
  3. Once you hear the water boiling at all, go ahead and put it on low because you don’t want to overheat the beeswax or burn it, as it will lose its valuable properties.
  4. Set out your molds so that when it’s time to fill them, you don’t have to scramble to get them ready. Depending on the size molds you have, you should have about a dozen or more of these bars when you are done. (My molds are from IKEA and are .99 each and they work great, if you’re wondering about where you can get some!)
  5. Next, stir your beeswax once or twice during the process to keep it from clumping and sticking together. While it’s melting, go ahead and measure out your coconut oil and shea butter, and once the beeswax is all liquefied, stir in the shea butter first, and then the coconut oil. Let them melt slowly, stirring if needed and once they are all melted, add in your essential oil.
  6. Slowly pour it into the molds and leave just a little room at the top in case of overflow. Let them sit at room temperature for at least an hour or so. Feel the bottom center of the molds to see if they are all the way cooled, and if it’s still warm, give it a little longer. Once it feels cool, flip the molds and gently pop them out. They normally come out easily once they are cooled down. I do like to leave them flipped over and cooling on the counter at this point for another 30 minutes or so, just to be sure all that moisture is gone off of them.
  7. Once cooled and set, you’re done! Put them in a cute jar, or soap dish or into little bags, and label if you’d like. We hope that you love these Moisturizing Orange Lotion Bars as much as we do.
