Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup room temperature shea butter, 4 ounces, 115 grams
  • 2/3 cup room temperature coconut oil, 4 ounces, 115 grams
  • 1 cup packed grated beeswax, 2 ounces, 58 grams
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon essential oil, optional


  1. In a medium sized saucepan, melt together the shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax over low heat just until the beeswax melts.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the lemon essential oil if you’re using it. Then carefully pour the mixture into the molds of your choice, or paper muffin cup liners. Let the lotion bars completely set up before using them. This takes at least 1 hour at room temperature, and around 15 minutes if refrigerated.
  3. When the bars are solid, remove them from the molds, and keep them in a cool dark place tightly sealed in a container for up to 6 months.


The shea butter and coconut oil need to be at room temperature simply to make measuring easier. When they’re cold or refrigerated they’re almost impossible to chip out of the container.
The molds I used are 2″ x 2″ x 3/4″.
To easily remove waxy residue from the surface of anything you use to create this recipe, carefully pour boiling water over the surface until it melts away.
