Moisturizing Lavender Lotion Bar

Moisturizing lavender lotion bars are so easy to make and have on hand for everyday use. Make a batch to use for yourself and give as gifts. Lavender is the swiss arm knife for our skin. It nourishes, moisturizes, and repair. Growing a few lavender plants will give you the opportunity to make your own lavender oil. I have written a post on getting started with a garden here. If that is not an option, buying or trading for fresh lavender from a local farm of farmers’ market will ensure a fresh steeped oil. With a few easy to gather ingredients, you will have moisturized, nourished skin in hours!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup Lavender infused oil to make infused oil choose fresh, dry lavender buds (1 cup) per quart. Pour oil of your choice, (sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, olive oil) over the fresh lavender. Infuse for one week in a cool dark place. When ready to use, strain lavender buds from oil.

Instructions

  • Combine all of the ingredients into a saucepan or an upcycled tin can.
  • If using a tin can, set it into a saucepan containing 2-3 inches of water.
  • Place the saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir until all ingredients are melted and combined.
  • Pour mixture into heatproof silicone molds. I bought these molds. Let cool a few hours before taking out of mold.

Elderberry & Magnolia

Miss Magnolia was born on a beautiful day in early October. It fills our hearts with much thanks and amazement every time a new life is born on our farm. The miracle never gets old.
