Violet Lotion Bars

final

Dry skin is never fun and can sometimes show up at the worst times when you don’t have lotion nearby. With these small lotion bars, you’ll never have to worry about finishing out the day with dry, scratchy skin. Just pop these in your bag or give them as gifts – they’re a simple and fun way to stay moisturized on the go. 🙂

What You’ll Need:

2 oz Sweet Almond Oil
0.5 oz Meadowfoam Oil
2 oz White Beeswax
2 oz Shea Butter
4 mL Violet FO
2 mL Cucumber Extract
1/4 tsp. Violaceous Violet
6 Push Tubes
Easy Pour Container

**If you are not local, you can get all of this and more at Bramble Berry! They will ship directly to you!**

In an easy pour container, weigh out the oils and the beeswax. Heat in the microwave until the beeswax is fully melted.

Once the beeswax is melted, add in the shea butter. The heat from the oils and beeswax should melt the shea butter. If it doesn’t, pop it back in the microwave for a few seconds until it is fully melted. Be sure to do short bursts, as you don’t want the butter to crystallize.

After the shea butter is completely melted, now you will add the fragrance oil, extract and color. Sometimes the color can clump, so just mix in until all the clumps are broken up.

Once everything is mixed together, pour into the push tubes and let solidify completely.
