  • 3 tablespoons cocoa butter
  • 3 tablespoons mango butter
  • 6 tablespoons dandelion infused oil
  • 40 drops essential oil of choice optional

Instructions

  • Following directions in post, make dandelion infused oil.
  • Place several inches of water in the bottom of a double boiler.
  • Combine beeswax, cocoa butter, mango butter, and dandelion oil in the top of a double boiler.
  • Heat gently on stovetop, stirring occasionally, until all ingredients are melted.
  • Remove from heat and add essential oil if using.
  • Pour into lotion bar molds.
  • Allow to cool completely before removing from the mold.
  • Store in tins, or other container.

Notes

To make your own inexpensive double boiler, place several inches water in a saucepan. Place several canning jar rings in the bottom of the pan. For the top portion of the double boiler, use a  wide mouth, 2 cup canning jar.
This lotion bar mold is perfect for this recipe. 
Lavender essential oil is a good choice for this recipe since it also is healing to dry skin and soothes aches and pains.
