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, are perfectly scented with a blend of eucalyptus, peppermint, lemon, and tea tree essential oils for winter, and the best part is a lotion bar doesn’t dry out.

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

These Lotion Bars also make a great gift, wrap them in plastic wrapping and then add a sticker to advise what it is.
