Once I learned what was in the lotion bars– and more importantly, what WASN’T in them– I made the switch for good. The recipe is four simple ingredients I buy in bulk, plus essential oils.
I make a batch about twice a year. I keep them in the fridge in a mason jar in my DIY beauty products section of the refrigerator. You don’t have one of those? Oh, we can totally fix that. Before you know it, you’ll be making lip balms, bath bombs, hand soap and who knows what else!
Over the years, I’ve tried many different variations and ingredients and have perfected my favorite recipe. The key ingredient is– wait for it– mango butter.
