Matcha Lotion Bars
These matcha lotion bars are solid at room temperature, but melt into a luxurious, moisturizing cream when rubbed onto the skin.
Bath and Body
Double boiler or saucepan and heat-proof glass container
sweet orange essential oil
mason jar or tin can
Silicone baking molds
or a well-greased muffin pan
Fill a medium pot with two inches of water and bring to a boil. Place a mason jar inside the pot to create a double boiler.
Add coconut oil, beeswax and cocoa butter to the jar and stir occasionally until it is fully melted.
Remove from heat and add your essential oils and matcha powder. Stir. Pour the liquid into your molds and allow lotion bars to cool fully before removing.
To use, simply rub the bars on your skin. As the warm up, they’ll leave behind a thin layer of moisture.
