We are all aware that we need to give ourselves a bit of time and pampering every now and again. Whether you are busy with your career, being a parent, a combination of the two, or just finding yourself chasing your tail daily, taking time out for yourself is important.

However, not all of us have the time to apply fancy lotions and this is where the lotion bar can save you time. Giving your skin that much-needed moisture, adding a subtle scent, and becoming a quick and easy part of your routine, a lotion bar could transform your daily hygiene routine. But there is no need to buy one.

Creating your own lotion bar is more simple than you might think. These lotion bars are super easy to make and with just a few supplies.

They have ingredients that will help moisturize your skin, a subtle fragrance that is sweet and floral, and the best part is a lotion bar doesn’t dry out.

It is a sold bar that is activated from your body heat, releasing moisture as you rub the bar across your skin. Which makes it a much less wasteful product to use.

Notes and tips

  • Make sure you have all of your supplies to hand before you start. It is important to help you move to each step.
  • If children are helping then make sure they are supervised at all times. You will be dealing with hot oils essentially, so you may want to help them with that part.
  • If you are struggling to find some of these supplies in your local shop then searching online is a great place to start. You will likely find all of these ingredients on platforms like Amazon.

Variations

  • If you are not a fan of the plumeria scent then why not change things up a little? There are many different fragrance oils that you could try such as floral scents or things that have a citrus scent to them. You could also change up the color and choose a different mica powder that could be associated with that fragrance. For example, lemon could mean using a yellow mica powder for the coloring.
  • You could add a few flower petals to the mold before they are set to give the Plumeria Lotion Bars a decorative look. This could work with a change in fragrance oil as well.
  • Buy different shaped molds if you are looking to create something a bit different.
  • If creating the Plumeria Lotion Bars as a gift, wrap them in plastic wrapping and then add a sticker to advise what it is.
