Made lotion bars today

Before school ended this year, I had a request that I make more lotion bars over the summer. I finally got around to it since I ran out and have to use them for my super dry skin. I took pictures and thought you might enjoy seeing the process. When I told the salesperson at the craft store what I was making, she said “Oh you are going to pour lotion into molds.” Nope! Not even close! I used equal parts olive, oil, coconut oil and beeswax. If you are interested at looking at recipes, I suggest http://www.commonsensehome.com/super-easy-hard-lotion-bars/
