Exquisite Refrigerated Lotion Bars

This lotion bar is designed to literally melt into your skin, but not in your hands. It contains moisture rich cocoa butter, along with other luscious oils and butters that leave your skin feeling pampered and refined. Exquisite Refrigerated Lotion Bars are best when stored in the refrigerator. They can be stored at room temperature, but if you keep your home especially warm (or do not have air

conditioning in the summer), they are best when kept refrigerated. These bars can be used in place of lotion, or to give someone you love a special massage treat (or, better yet, receive one yourself!!)
Fresh Ingredients
8 ounces Cocoa Butter
1 ounce Shea Butter
1/2 ounce Mango Butter
1/2 ounce Avocado Oil
1 teaspoon Calendula Total CO2
2 teaspoons Liquid Grapefruit Seed Extract
Aromatics (optional)
Place all ingredients except calendula total CO2 and grapefruit seed extract in a double boiler. (You could use a microwave to speed things, but the extreme heat will all but destroy the nutrients in the oils if they are cold pressed.) After the ingredients have melted, remove them from the heat source. Stir with a clean wooden stir stick to ensure the mix. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes.
Incorporate grapefruit seed extract and calendula CO2. Stir to blend in.At this time, you may add aromatics; 1/4 ounce at most is usually sufficient. Especially nice ones to use are peppermint, vanilla bourbon,beeswax absolute, oakmoss, patchouli, Bulgarian rose concrete, steam
distilled lime peel, sandalwood mysore.Stir to incorporate any aromatics. Pour into molds. I like to use1-ounce candy tray molds or plastic mini-muffin shapes because they make such pretty treats. (And, of course, these lotion bars always work better when they are pretty!) Place the bars into the freezer for
about 20 minutes. Gently release the bars from their mold and allow them to rest for a few hours before wrapping.
