Clean recycled tin can
Mold (I used a mini loaf pan)
Combine the coconut oil, and shae butter, and the beeswax pastilles in a clean recycled tin can.
Place the can with the ingredients into a small saucepan with about an inch or two of water.
Heat the pan on the stove and as the water heats, it will melt your ingredients in the tin can. Keep the water at a high simmer, it does not have to boil. It should take about 5 minutes to melt the ingredients.
Once the ingredients have melted, pour them into the mold of your choice. When the ingredients have cooled and hardened, you can remove them from the mold.
To use the lotion bars, rub them onto your skin and the heat from your body will soften the bars just enough to rub some into your skin.
