Lotion Bar Recipe with Healing Coconut Oil

5 from 19 reviews

This lotion bar recipe is great for everyone, especially those with dry or cracked skin. You only need 3 ingredients to make them!



  1. Heat coconut oil, shea butter, and beeswax together in a saucepan over low heat. It helps if you break up the beeswax into small chunks because it takes a while for the wax to melt. You can also use beeswax pastilles, which will melt faster. 
  2. Once the beeswax, coconut oil, and shea butter are melted, add essential oils. I like to use vanilla and lavender. I’m sensitive to strong fragrances so I only add 10-15 drops per 2 ounces of oil.
  3. Pour melted coconut oil and beeswax into lotion bar molds or muffin tins.
  4. Let them sit until cool. You can also place them in the refrigerator if you need to speed up the process.
