Lavender Lotion Bar Tutorial
Does your skin need some serious moisture? Lotion bars are a way to go. You do not know what a location bar is? According to The Soap Queen, lotion bars typically refers to a combination of butters, wax, and oil that creates a firm yet spreadable product when combined. Since they are made solely of oils, they are great for extremely dry areas like elbows, knees and cuticles. If you are interested in using a lotion bar, The Soap Queen recently posted a recipe for a Lavender Lotion Bar. I particularly like the packaging used for this product...a deodorant stick. What do you think?
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
