Learn how to make easy homemade lotion bars with all-natural ingredients and essential oils. They make a thoughtful handmade gift. You can use any essential oil or combination of oils. Ours is made with grapefruit essential oil but lavender is a popular option.
The beeswax is what helps them to keep their shape but when pressed against your warm skin, your body heat naturally melts them.

Here are a few tips to know when using essential oils from my friends at Young Living.
“* Never use any of the oils in plastic since they will eat the petrochemicals
* Remember to wait until your pores have closed after showering before using any of the oils as they may burn. If this does ever happen, just dab a carrier oil like olive or coconut oil on the area
* If you feel that an oil is too ‘hot’ (Oregano, PanAway or Peppermint), just apply a dab of coconut oil or olive oil to your skin. It will almost immediately take the heat out of the oil but will not denature (ruin) the oil. It simply slows down the absorption rate in which the oil enters your bloodstream
* Although an allergic reaction is nearly impossible since the protein molecule that causes allergic reactions is distilled out, please use wisdom. If you are allergic to the plant Lavender, for example, then just test a dab of Lavender Oil on your wrist to make sure there are no issues. Your peace of mind is extremely important when using essential oils!”
