Lotion Bars

A fairly easy project to make. Another way to use your herbs. Especially if you have infused oils with them.
There are many skin lovin' herbs that can be infused into the oils for skin benefits. I like to sprinkle dried Rose's in as well. If you want something fun and sparkly you can use an iridescent food grade power on top of them.

I pick up the tins at the dollar store. It's a great little container for several different shapes.
 
The general directions for the bars are as follows:
1 part shea butter, 1 part beeswax and one part infused coconut oil. Sometimes I add several drops of vitamin e, which may be a helpful preservative. Melt the 3 parts in a double boiler until melted. Pull from heat and mix in the optional vit e and if you choose, at that time you could put in 10-20 drops of essential oil and pour into your molds.
Theses make a nice gift.
