This is Jane’s recipe for a soothing body butter bar. It’s for a basic small batch which allows you to test the recipe inexpensively. You can also easily change the recipe by using different oils or butters. You can use fragrance oils or essential oils for scent. Another alternative is to leave the bars unscented.
Here’s the recipe:
2 ounces (57g) Mango or Cocoa Butter
2 ounces (57g) beeswax pastilles (white or yellow is fine)
3 ounces (85g) sweet almond oil
1-1/2 teaspoons body safe fragrance oil
Combine the butter and beeswax into a microwave-safe glass measuring cup. Heat slowly in the microwave in short segments of 5-10 seconds at a time, stirring in between each segment. Once the mixture is fully melted, remove from microwave and stir in the sweet almond oil, mixing until completely combined.
Allow the mixture to cool for 1 to 2 minutes, then add in the fragrance oil. Stir until completely combined. Immediately pour the mixture into your desired packaging (push up lotion bar tubes or lip balm tubes are recommended options).
These bars are great for personal use or as gifts, but they also make great products and samples in their own right if you decide to make a little money on the side with your creations.
