Winter weather is a common cause of dry skin. The decrease in humidity levels and increase in time spent indoors can lead to itchiness, painful cracks, dermatitis and eczema. Moisturizing with body lotion is especially important this time of year, which is why I made essential oil lotion bars to distribute dermatological relief alongside of holiday cheer. 

Essential-oil lotion bars are shockingly simple, requiring only 4 ingredients:

One recipe yields five, 2-by-2-inch lotion bars.


2 ounces of Coconut Oil
3 ounces of Beeswax
1 ounce of Shea Butter
60 drops of Essential Oils
