Homemade Natural Lotion Bars – You Will Never Go Back

I don’t know anyone who hasn’t dealt with dry skin, especially in winter climates. I live in Utah and have the double challenge of cold and dry air to contend with. Made with beeswax, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and essential oils, these moisturizing natural lotion bars are and sure to nourish and soothe dry skin. Not only are they practical, but they are super cute and make awesome gifts. Just rub the bar on your skin and let your body’s natural heat melt the lotion. After one use, you won’t know how you lived without natural lotion bars!
