Homemade Shea Butter Lotion Sticks

Empty Lotion Stick Tubes for Making Homemade Lotion, Deodorant, and Cosmetics, Mini Size Tubes, 0.5oz, (8 Pack)

Shea Butter Lotion Bar Stick Ingredients:

      What to Do:

      1. 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).
      2. Remove from heat and add essential oils.
      3. Pour into lotion bar tube.
      4. 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.
