|Materials: silicone molds, double boiler pan (not pictured)|
Ingredients: coconut oil, beeswax, apricot oil, and essential oil of your choice (I used peppermint)
|Cooling in the molds.....|
|Time to package everything and give it as gifts!|
In addition to the lotion bars, I wanted to find a recipe for a more natural body lotion with limited ingredients. Searching Pinterest there were many great choices. Life From the Ground Up had a great recipe with few ingredients. Using this recipe, I made three small glass jars, with a small amount left over for me!
|Creamy lavender body lotion|
|Decorative lid (scrapbook paper attached with matte medium gel),|
and ribbon. I haven't quite decided how I will package this one, but I'll post a pic later.
A few other DIY recipes I'll be creating soon include lip balm from LiaGriffith.com , sea salt bars from Happy Mothering, and one gift baskets from the DIY Mommy. I'm going to be busy the next several days and will have more to share!
