DIY Coconut Lotion Bars

Homemade Lotion Bars

Lotion bars are really popular in the “DIY skin care world”.  They are all over Pinterest.  I have avoided them due to possible messiness and inconvenience.  Well, I’m glad I bit the bullet and made some because they are so helpful for dry skin.  Plus, for those of you looking for something a bit more solid then yesterday’s Body Oil, these are for you!

Plus, they are just so cute!

What You’ll Need:

 Coconut Lotion Bars

1 cup coconut oil (find it HERE)

1/4 cup shea butter (find it HERE)

1 cup beeswax (find it HERE)

2 tsp. Vitamin E Oil (find it HERE)

30 drops of Essential Oils (find it HERE)


  1. Fill a medium pot 1/2 way full with water.
  2. Place a glass pyrex  bowl with a spout in the water.
  3. Add all 3 ingredients to the glass bowl and allow to melt.
  4. Remove from heat and add essential oils and/or vitamin E.
  5. Pour into molds.
  6. Allow molds to cool in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

I tried a new essential oil combo. in these lotion bars and really like it!  I added 15 drops of Lavender, 10 drops Lemon and 5 drops of Marjoram-they smell heavenly!

Be sure to tell your friend or family member to only use a small amount at a time-A little goes a long way and you will end up feeling like a greased pig if you use too much!  I usually keep one bar by my bed and use just a bit a night.

You can also store these in a deodorant container for total convenience!


Don’t forget a label!!  I have made a label you can save to your computer and print from your own printer using the Avery website.  I used THESE labels for this size bottle.  I also enjoy using Stick You for my labels because they are waterproof and turn out gorgeous.  Sticker You is affordable and easy to use.  They ship fast and you can print different labels on 1 page.
