Beeswax is an incredibly versatile ingredient. It’s used in a variety of projects including balms, soap, lotion and more. In these Beeswax & Honey Lotion Bars, yellow beeswax gives firmness and a lovely yellow color. To add softness and skin-loving properties, olive oil and shea butter are added. The combination of the oil, butter and wax create a lotion bar that’s firm at room temperature, but softens when applied to the skin.
Pure Honey Fragrance Oil adds a sweet smell to the bars. Combined with the natural smoky scent from yellow beeswax, these bars smell good enough to eat! Two lotion bars can fit into a candle tin fairly comfortably, but the top of the bar may get a little squished. If you’re packaging them in tins, you may want to underfill the cavities slightly to make them a little slimmer. You could also package the bars in bail jars, cube boxes, or gift bags. If you’re giving these bars as gifts, download and print these labels on Waterproof Label Paper for a polished look. Store them in a cool, dry and dark place to avoid any melting or softening.
