peppermint-sugar-scrub-bars made with essential oils 1/4 cup Coconut Oil (I like Nutiva and Tropical Traditions) 1/2 cup Shredded Soap (I like this soap) 3-4 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil (buy here) 1 cup organic sugar Red Mica Colorant (Optional)
How to Make Hard Lotion Bars for Dry Skin Ingredients: 4.5 oz beeswax, 4 oz shea butter, 4 oz coconut oil. Combine pre-measured ingredients in a double boiler. Melt, stir well, and pour into molds (or use turkey baster to fill mold with melted lotion). Molds can be plastic or metal. Ice cube trays and cupcake pans both work great. Allow lotion to completely cool before popping out and using. For ease in removing from mold, place in freezer for 30 minutes and then remove.
Slough off dry winter skin with an invigorating homemade body scrub. It's easy, all-natural, and so inexpensive, you'll want to make enough for gifts. Combine 1 cup of body oil with 2 cups of Epsom or sea salts or organic cane sugar (depending on how fine a grain you like). We added lemon zest for color and fragrance. Package in jars (plastic is safest near the tub).
Make Your Own Simple, Inexpensive Moisturizing Lotion
Every winter I battle skin so dry it cracks and bleeds. A few years ago my grandmother gave me homemade lotion, which I love. It's about to run out, but now I have this recipe! This best part is, you can make it from dollar store materials and stuff you already have at home
