I’m a huge fan of coconut oil and its various uses. At our home, we use it in everything from cooking to toothpaste.
These coconut oil lotion bar sticks for beauty are my most recent DIY project with coconut apply to oil and I’ll be making insufficient more batches to have on hand for Christmas gifts.
What are Cream Bars?
Cream bars are simple-to-make bars that are prepared to be used on the skin when it is dry. Unlike soap, they aren’t prepared to be used for cleansing or on a wet membrane but are a great method to moisturize and nourish membrane after bathing or showering.
They are often prepared with ingredients like:
- Shea Cooking oil
- Cocoa Butter
- Mango Butter
- Coconut Apply oil
- Essential Oils
Where to get Coconut Oil Ointment Bar Ingredients & Supplies:
Like my original ointment bars, these are meant to be used on waterless skin. They are even simpler to make with only two elements: coconut oil and beeswax.
I’ve ordered both coconut oil and beeswax from Mountain Rose plants because they have great values on bulk goods but shipping can take a while. For a quicker option, I’ve also well-ordered this coconut oil and beeswax lozenges with two-day shipping when I’m in a hurry to get the components.
I prepared these in empty reusable malleable tubes for easy use and application. These are the pipes I used but there are some other less-expensive options that look like daily deodorant tubes:
- White empty roll-on tubes – pack of five (2.5 oz)
- Clear empty roll-on tubes – pack of five (2.5 oz)
- Black spray tubes – pack of five (2.5 oz)
- Red and olive green tubes – pack of 16 (2 oz)
- Coconut Oil Ointment Bar Stick Ingredients:
- 2/3 cup beeswax lozenges (measured dry)
- 2/3 cup coconut emollient
Essential oils of selection (I use 15-20 drops of peppermint, lavender or citrus emollients)
What to Do:
- Melt wax and coconut oil in a double boiler or in a glass bowl on highest of a small saucepan of boiling H2O.
- When melted, eradicate from heat and stir in essential oils if using.
- Carefully pour into black plastic tubes.
- Let harden completely earlier using or moving them. They can be warily moved into the icebox to speed up this process.
- Store at room fill-in (below 85 degrees) and use as required on dry skin.
