DIY Glitter Lotion Bars
What You'll Need
- 3.5 ounces cocoa butter
- 1 ounce Paradise Springs Jojoba Oil
- 1 Tbsp gold mica powder (for sparkle)
- 40 drops of your favorite Paradise Springs Essential Oil (try Lavender Oil)
- Heat-safe glass
- Molds of choice (such as ice cube trays)
Use a double-boiler method to melt the cocoa butter. To do this, heat 1-2 inches of water in a saucepan over medium heat, bringing water to a simmer. Place the heat-safe glass with cocoa butter directly into the water to gently melt it.
Once the cocoa butter is melted, add the Jojoba Oil. Mix and remove from heat. Add the mica powder and mix well, until the mica powder is evenly dispersed.
Let the mixture cool for about 15 minutes and add Lavender Oil or your favorite Paradise Springs Essential Oil (Ylang Ylang and Geranium work great, too, or try a combination to make your own scent!). Pour mix into mold of choice. Set aside until solid.
Usage & Storage
To use, simply glide your lotion bar over skin as needed for moisture and shimmer. These convenient bars are hydrating and non-greasy (no need to rinse!). Store in a cool, dry place at room temperature, avoiding heat. If traveling with your lotion bar, store it in a travel tin or soap holder to avoid transfer onto clothes or bags, and be mindful of excessive heat or hot weather.
