Three Solid Lotion Bar Recipes: Karma, Serenity, and Ache Relief

One thing that Tonya and I both like is LOTION.  Well, any apothecary, really...from lotions to bath bombs to oils, perfumes, and makeup.

This time we got together, we made lotion bars.

I made three recipes.  Each quantity is by weight in ounces, and the process for melting and molding each one was the same.

"Karma" bars
2 oz beeswax
2 oz shea butter
2 oz almond oil
3/4 stick Karma solid perfume from LUSH

-melt all ingredients together in a double boiler and pour into molds.

Because I used a store-bought, proprietary fragrance, this isn't one that I could ever sell, but I really do enjoy it for personal use!

Chocolate and Rose bars
4 oz coconut oil
4 oz shea butter
2.5 oz beeswax
chocolate and rose essential oils

Peanut oil muscle aches bars
2 oz beeswax
2 oz shea butter
2 oz peanut oil
a few drops dōTerra "Serenity"

Peanut oil has been shown to reduce muscle and arthritis pain, as well as having a number of benefits for the skin.  I don't notice any peanutty smell in the lotion, and have seen improvement in my knee and lower back pain. If you have joint pain or even aches from working out (I have both!) give this one a try!
