Orange Honey Lotion Bars

Hard lotion bars are essentially the same as liquid lotion, except they are solid at room temperature. They are “activated” by the warmth of your skin, meaning once the lotion bar is applied to your skin, your natural body heat warms up the bar. This softens the bar which allows you to glide it on smoothly.

  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • Tablespoons of raw honey

  • 2

    ounces organic beeswax

  • 2

    ounces organic shea butter

  • 2

    ounces organic coconut oil

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil (optional)

  • 6

    drops of organic sweet orange essential oil


In a double boiler, melt together the beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil until they become a smooth, uniform liquid. Turn the heat off and add the olive oil, honey, and essential oil drops. In a muffin tin lined with five cupcake liners (reusable silicone works great!), ladle the mixture evenly between the lined cupcake wells. Allow to set (or harden) on the counter for 7 to 8 hours, or pop in the fridge to speed up the process.
