Lavender Orange Lotion Bars

Happy friday! We’re here with these ultra moisturizing Lavender Orange Lotion Bars! Lotion bars are exactly what they sound like, lotion but in a bar form. We’re saving our planet by not using packaging for these little gems. All of these ingredients are natural/organic! And the best part is that you have full control over what you decide to rub all of over your skin. Let’s begin!

Tools

  • Microwave-safe bowl
  • Stainless steel spoon
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Disposable pipettes
  • Heart mold
  • Freezer

Ingredients

Base

Nature’s Flavors Fragrance oils

Directions

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the candelilla wax and Nature’s Flavors Sunflower Oil. Melt the oils in 30 second increments until you reach a smooth, oily consistency.
  2. Add the cocoa butter wafers into the hot wax. Stir the mixture until the wafers melt. If necessary, place the bowl in the microwave and heat the mixture in 30 second increments until the wafers melt. Don’t overheat.
  3. Using a disposable pipette, add in Nature’s Flavors Lavender Fragrance Oil and Nature’s Flavors Orange Fragrance Oil into the mixture. Stir. Set aside.
  4. Place your desired amount of fresh lavender leaves into each heart mold.
  5. Begin by pouring a thin layer, enough to cover the lavender leaves, and using a spoon, press the lavender leaves down. Allow it to cool before pouring the rest of the lotion bar mixture.
    • This allows the lavender leaves to stay in place and not rise up.
  6. Pour the remaining mixture into each heart mold.
  7. Place the mold in the freezer for faster cooling and to avoid crystallization.
  8. Enjoy your Lavender Orange Lotion Bars!

ALL-NATURAL FOOD COLORINGS

Nature’s Flavors All-Natural Food Colors

We used our natural food colors to give our playdough some color. We carry a wide selection of natural and organic food colors so make sure to check us out!

Directions

  1. Combine the flour, salt, cream of tartar, water, and Nature’s Flavors Coconut Oil in a pan and mix well until everything is well combined.
  2. Place the pan on a stovetop and heat all of the ingredients on medium heat. Make sure to stir frequently to avoid the play dough from burning onto the pan.
  3. The consistency of the playdough will become thicker. Once the playdough stops sticking to the sides of the pan, remove it from the stove top and allow it to slightly cool.
  4. Meanwhile, cut five medium pieces of parchment paper and set them aside.
  5. Once the playdough has slightly cooled, (should still be warm to touch) divide it into five even pieces. We rolled each of the five pieces of playdough into balls.
  6. Place each ball of playdough on each piece of parchment paper. Wrap up the playdough to avoid it becoming crumbly and hard.
  7. Remove the parchment paper from the playdough ball. Place the parchment paper on a flat surface and put the playdough ball on top of the parchment paper.
  8. Put on a pair of gloves and using a disposable pipette, drop 15-25 drops of food color onto the playdough ball.
  9. Knead the dough until the food color is evenly distributed.
  10. Repeat the process for the rest of the dough.
  11. We hope your kiddos enjoy this All-Natural Homemade Playdough!
