Lotion Bars (Solid Bath Oil Bars)

2 oz. deodorized cocoa butter or mango butter
2 oz. beeswax, refined beads
2 or 3 oz. liquid vegetable oil such as jojoba, sunflower or sweet almond
2 tsp. essential oil or fragrance oil of your choice
1/2 to 1 tsp. of Jojoba Wax Spheres in color of your choice for coloring

Melt cocoa or mango butter and pour 2 ounces into an 8 ounce Pyrex measuring
cup. Add 2 ounces of beeswax beads (total of 4 ounces in cup). Add jojoba wax spheres. Melt together in microwave. Now add the liquid vegetable oil. Use 2 ounces for a hard bar, which would bring your total to 6 ounces... OR use 3 ounces for a softer bar, which would bring your total to 7 ounces.
Stir to mix thoroughly. Add essential or fragrance oil when mixture has cooled slightly. Pour into small soap molds. Pop out when cool, about 2 hours. For best results, put in refrigerator a few minutes before popping out of mold.

Some uses include: Rub on body when getting out of shower while still damp, wet hands and rub with lotion bar, use as a drawer sachet, cut off a sliver and let melt in hot bath water, massage into cuticles to soften them, rub onto elbows and knees, or use for massage (softer bar recipe).
