LAVENDER LOTION BARS



Ingredients

2 ounces beeswax
2 ounces coconut oil
2 ounces shea butter or cocoa butter
10-20 drops lavender essential oil

Instructions

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the beeswax, coconut oil, and shea butter just until they turn to liquid. Immediately remove from the heat.
Stir in the essential oil and pour into 2-ounce silicone molds. Set aside until cool.
Unmold the bars and store in a cool, dry place. To use, rub over skin and then rub in as you would your daily lotion.
Notes: You can increase the ratio of beeswax to shea butter and coconut oil to make a firmer bar for hotter temperatures

Cocoa Butter Body Bar



Made purely from natural ingredients. This is a luxurious skin softening bar that melts upon touch. It as a lovely soft fragrance that lingers across the day. Apply to the body as a moisturiser.
Author: Kyrstie Barcak - A Fresh Legacy
Recipe type: Skincare
Serves: 1 bar
Ingredients
1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
50 grams Cocoa Butter
½ tablespoon Macadamia Oil
20 grams Shea Butter
¼ teaspoon raw honey
2 sprigs fresh Rosemary
1 sprig fresh Sage
Instructions
Fill a saucepan with water to about ⅓ full and set to boil
Put a bowl that fits over the top of the saucepan (without touching the water) and add all of the ingredients except the honey to the bowl on top of the saucepan
Melt the ingredients over a very low heat, slowly
Stir gently to assist them to dissolve
Once dissolved to a liquid, remove from the heat and set aside to cool (for at least one hour) Leave the herbs to steep in the liquid
Add the honey once the liquid has cooled down and stir to combine
While the ingredients are still in a liquid form - remove the herbs and discard and pour the liquid into a mold - eg: a plastic container and place in the fridge to set.
Once set the bar can be removed from the container by gently rubbing around the outside of the container with your hands. The heat generated from your hands will release the bar.
Store in a cool location - this may need to be in the fridge if you live in a tropical climate.
To use simply rub straight onto the skin as you would a bar of soap
Notes
**When heating the oils do not exceed 40 degree celcius
If you need to travel with the body bar, place it in a container incase it becomes exposed to heat.
If the bar melts in warm weather reset it in a container and return to the fridge to set. Store below 30 degrees at all times.
The honey will tend to settle at the top of the bar. Remove it by rubbing it on to your skin or washing it off under the tap using just tepid water. It is lovely to use on your skin but it will be a little tacky feeling until it is absorbed.
If you experience any irritation using a skin care product, discontinue use immediately.

DIY Natural Coffee Under Eye Cream Recipe for Puffy Eyes



Ingredients:

1/2 oz. coffee infused oil (see below)
.25 oz. jojoba oil
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.75 oz. shea butter
.75 oz. cocoa butter
1/2 ml lavender essential oil
1/2 ml chamomile essential oil
5 drops non-GMO vitamin E

To Make Coffee Infused Oil:

Coarsely ground 3 Tablespoons of whole (unflavored) coffee beans in a coffee grinder. Combined the grounds with 4 oz. by weight of olive oil over low heat for about 15 minutes, then strain the oil using either cheesecloth or a coffee filter in a pinch. As I didn’t have cheesecloth handy, I improvised by taping a coffee filter to the top of a cup then poured the coffee and oil into the filter. Once the majority of the oil dripped through I carefully removed the filter and then squeezed the rest of the oil out into the cup.

Instructions:

Using a digital kitchen scale weigh out the shea and cocoa butter into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave until melted, then weigh out the coffee infused oil, rosehip seed oil and the jojoba oil and stir into the melted butters.

Next, using a different 3ml Graduated Plastic Transfer Pipettes for each essential oil, measure out and add the chamomile and lavender essential oils and mix into the other ingredients. Finally, add several drops of vitamin E if desired and pour into your container(s) of choice.

Notes from the crafting kitchen: Keep in mind that this does take some time to thicken. I’ve had products like this take a day or two to thicken at room temps and up to several hours to thicken fully in the fridge.

Also, as I did go back and experiment with various coffee options, note that using pre-ground coffee beans vs. coffee beans you grind fresh as well as the intensity of the roast – light, medium or dark – will determine the final color of your oil. Pre-ground and darker roasts make a much darker oil than grinding the beans yourself and choosing a light roast. Also, straining with a coffee filter over all other methods produces a much lighter oil.

Also keep in mind that ingredients from different suppliers will yield slightly varying results. I do not recommend using olive oil from the grocery store, but rather olive oil sourced specifically from a company that sells olive oil for using in soapmaking and bath and beauty.
