  • Melting device - double boiler or chocolate melter
  • Molds for the lotion bars
  • Cheese grater
  • Baking sheet


  • 1 cup beeswax
  • 1 cup mango butter
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 9 drops orange oil
  • 9 drops lavender oil


  • Shred the mange butter thought a cheese grater.
  • Melt the beeswax, mango butter and olive oil together in the double boiler or chocolate melter. In the chocolate melter this will take 20-30 minutes.
  • Prep the molds by laying them on a baking sheet. I like to do this just in case I spill.
  • Add the essential oil to the mix once it has completely melted and just before you're ready to pour.
  • Pour the hot mixture into your molds.
  • Let cool in the molds overnight.
  • Remove from the molds and package as desired.
