Method

Using a small paint brush, dust the insides of your silicone mould with gold mica making sure to highlight any special details.

Add the beeswax, coconut oil and Shea butter to a glass jug and melt slowly over low heat using a double boiler, or in 1 minute bursts in the microwave.

Once it has melted, set aside to cool for two to three minutes before adding the essential oils and gold mica.

Stir well until all of the mica is evenly combined.

Set your silicone mould on a cutting board or tray and then on top of your kitchen scales. Pour out 40g of mixture into each mould cavity.

Set your lotion bars aside to set. They may be able to be popped out after 1/2 an hour but will take up to 3 hours to fully set. If possible, avoid popping them out of the mould before they are fully set.

Directions for Use

Warm up your lotion bar in your hand and then rub on elbows, heels, blemishes, and any other areas of dry skin.

When not in use, store your lotion bar in a glass jar or metal tin, or wrap it in grease-proof paper, to prevent the oils and butters soaking into surrounding surfaces.
