There must be quite a few things a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them.

Solid Body Lotion Bar

1 tablespoon Beeswax Beads (measured as beads)
1 tablespoon Cocoa Butter (measured melted)
1 tablespoon Palm Oil (measured melted)
1 teaspoon Jojoba Oil*
2 to 3 drops from a vitamin E capsule
10 drops of essential oil or perfume fragrance oil

Melt the first four ingredients together. Remove from heat. Add vitamin E and fragrance. Pour into your mold and allow to set up. If it won't remove from the mold easily, place it in the freezer for about 1/2 hour. Hold your hand over the back of the mold to remove the bar. Makes 1 1/2 oz.

*For color... use colored jojoba beads in place of jojoba oil.

You can double and triple the size of this recipe and should be able to maintain good results.

If you find your lotion bar is too hard, you can remelt it and add a bit more cocoa butter.

If the bar is too soft, you can remelt it and add a few pieces of beeswax beads. Be careful not to use too much.

Keep the bars wrapped between use so that it doesn't collect any dust, dirt or lint from sitting out.

Bath and Body Tip #5

Epsom salt is extremely inexpensive and a terrific aid for soothing sore muscles.
