As the temperatures begin to drop, you might start to experience dry, itchy skin. Try your hand at these ultra luxurious, all-natural lotion bars this winter. Lotion bars are mess-free and perfect for all your holiday activities and travel. Pop them into a tin container to keep in your bag, car, or to hand out to friends and family.
They're not edible, but make for great gifts! This recipe uses a cannabis-infused coconut oil* for a relaxing feeling without the cerebral effect. Cannabis topicals are absorbed through the skin for localized relief. You can choose to opt out and use regular coconut oil as well.
Pick your favorite essential oils and as the lotion bar melts against the warmth of your skin, it will double as aromatherapy!
Essential Oil Suggestions:
Powerful & Feminine Blend: Rose, Lavender, Black Pepper
