I LOVE to make most of the products we use around the house - it's shocking how easy it is to make body scrubs, deodorant, lotions, facial cleansers, household cleaning supplies, etc.
One of my absolute favorite items are Lotion Bars and it's funny because I hadn't thought about them in a while until my friend Niki gave some of the ones she made (shown above) for Christmas!
I can't even properly articulate how much I looooove these bars. I get a lot of compliments on how soft my skin is which sounds a lot more "Buffalo Bill'esque a la Silence of the Lambs" than I intended, but I do.
The thing is, I don't have soft skin - I have really DRY skin since moving to Colorado. I use A LOT of lotions and potions to keep my skin in great shape. That said, Lotion Bars make it so incredibly easy to not look like you're a human / lizard hybrid.
I have no idea what Niki used in her magical lotion bars but you can start making your own with a handful of ingredients.
