Weighing the Beeswax and Hydrogenated Soybean Oil.

Lotion bars are one product that I like to keep on hand for times that I want to apply a lotion to my arms or elbows but at the same time I don’t want to have any fragrance or oils on my hands. (Like when I’m cooking!) There are several benefits to having lotion bars available and the majority of recipes for lotion bars can be slightly altered to be made into lip balms or solid perfumes.

Mostly melted ingredients. Mostly melted ingredients.
One of my favorite uses for a lotion bar formula is actually to use the formula as a solid perfume or perfume stick. The biggest difference is the amount of fragrance used. When I make a solid perfume, I generally use between 2-15% of fragrance. For example; in Taylor’s Candy Shop Perfume Stick, she used 9% of fragrance. Right in the middle of the recommended amount and it was at what I considered to be a proper usage of fragrance. With this particular formula, I would reduce the Castor Oil by the amount of fragrance I used. This will help the formula feel less sticky.

Let’s go make a lotion bar now that I’ve made you think!
