two cups of shea butter. Shea butter is a deep moisturizer and supports
inflammation reduction. Two cups of coconut oil. Coconut oil is also a great
moisturizer. It absorbs quickly is antifungal and supports the reduction of
wrinkles. It can also help soothe skin ailments such as eczema and psoriasis.
Two cups of beeswax. Beeswax is a moisturizer and has antibacterial
properties. It also supports inflammation reduction. Essential oils I like to use
is geranium, lemongrass and copaiba essential oil. Geranium essential oil
supports hormone balances, circulation, cell growth, wrinkle, and inflammation
reduction. It can also relieve stress and anxiety and support mental function. It
is antibacterial and a natural deodorant. Lemongrass essential oil is a natural
cleanser and deodorizer. It possesses antiseptic and antioxidant properties.
It supports stress and inflammation reduction and also promotes blood
circulation. Copaiba essential oil promotes the tightening of pores and is
antibacterial. Its supports skin regeneration, inflammation reduction and
mood enhancement. Combine shea butter, coconut oil and
beeswax in a double boiler. Bring water to a boil. Stir ingredients constantly
until they are melted and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool. Next, add geranium
lemongrass and Copaiba essential oil. Gently stir by hand until essential oils
are fully incorporated into the mixture. Then carefully pour into molds of choice.
Allow the lotion bars to cool completely before attempting to take out of molds.
You can let air dry or place in your fridge for quicker results. This recipe
makes 12 lotion bars. And it’s just that easy. Thanks for watching.
