Dry skin doesn’t have to mean waiting around for the oily lotion to be absorbed.
You do longer have to decide between tolerating irritating dry skin or accepting oily lotion residue being left on clothing and linens. Remove your worries about the bottle being tipped over and staining the carpet or everything else in your travel bag. Concern about what other toxic chemicals might be in that bottle of lotion are also removed with this option.
Here is a chance to change how and what you use to relieve dry skin. Move from liquids to solids. Instead of worry, take control of your skin lotion’s scents and consistency with 4 ingredients. Have smooth skin without the mess in no time.

The [essential] oils used in these bars are fairly interchangeable so feel free to experiment with your favorite ones, and the amount of beeswax used can be adjusted to make them firmer or softer. Skip the beeswax and follow the same steps to create bath melts, a wonderful way to soothe winter skin (just drop one in a warm bath and allow yourself to soak). These make great gifts and are ideal for travel (no more lugging around a jar of coconut oil) or just when you’re feeling lazy (like me).
- 1/4 cup raw cocoa butter
- 1/4 cup beeswax
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- essential oil (optional)
- Silicone mold/ice cube tray
Using a double boiler or a glass jar nested in a pot of boiling water, melt all ingredients together. Once the oils and wax have melted completely, you may add any essential oils (if using).
Use an oven mitt to remove the jar from the pot and carefully pour the mixture into a silicone mold.
Allow to cool completely before removing from the molds. To speed up the process, place the molds in your freezer. Store in a cool, dry place away from any heat source.
