Homemade Shea Butter Lotion Sticks
Shea Butter Lotion Bar Stick Ingredients:
raw organic shea butter
unrefined coconut oil
- solid at room temp (can use extra shea butter if allergic to coconut)
2 teaspoons olive oil OR castor oil
20+ drops of
essential oil of choice
(optional) I used chamomile, geranium and orange
What to Do:
Slowly melt all ingredients, except essential oils, down in a double boiler or sturdy glass bowl over a small pan of boiling water. (TIP: I found an old double boiler at a thrift store that I use for skin products only).
Remove from heat and add essential oils.
lotion bar tube.
Let cool for several hours or overnight. I put mine in the fridge to speed the cooling process.
Note: This recipe makes enough for one 4-ounce lotion bar tube. For a firmer lotion bar stick, use more beeswax. For a smoother lotion bar stick, use less beeswax and more coconut oil or olive oil.
