3 Ingredient Lotion Bars

Make your own lotion bars in just 3 ingredients! I love these so much - especially on damp skin after a shower. Amazing! | MrsHappyHomemaker.com @thathousewife

Many of the homemade bath & body recipes out there call for a whole slew of ingredients & supplies – not to mention the mess some of them can make! I love making my own soaps, lotions, & such but simplicity is definitely key.

That’s why I love these super simple lotion bars so much. 3 ingredients is all you need to make up a batch of them, and they last a really long time!

The recipe components are this:

Combine all the ingredients in a double boiler or a glass bowl over a smaller saucepan with about an inch of water in it. Bring the water to a boil & whisk the ingredients together until they are all melted & combined. Remove from the heat. If you want, you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil(s) at this point. Pour into molds of your choice.

I love these silicone muffin liners for individual bars – but I have to say my favorites are empty deodorant containers. You can buy them online these days empty & brand new. I like to use the lotion bars in the deodorant containers in the shower on wet skin after bathing. It’s ah-mazing!!
