DIY Lotion Bar Recipe with Essential Oils

Give your skin some much-deserved love! Not your average moisturizer, this DIY lotion bar uses the warmth of your body to melt natural emollients and essential oils into the skin to smooth, moisturize and hydrate dry hands, heels, elbows, and more.

With a rich base of coconut oil, beeswax, and shea butter, this homemade lotion bar recipe has a smooth and rich consistency. We honestly can’t get enough of the clean and fresh lavender-lemon combo we tried, but feel free to get inspired and create your own essential oil blend!

Bonus Tip: If you want to create an exfoliating texture, we recommend adding in some citrus zest, oatmeal, or dried lavender. Have fun experimenting!



½ cup extra-virgin coconut oil

½ cup beeswax

¼ cup shea butter

¼ cup cocoa butter

15–20 drops essential oil of your choice (I recommend 10 drops of Lavender essential oil and 10 drops of Lemon essential oil)

Optional: dried lavender and lemon zest for exfoliation


-16-ounce measuring cup

Silicone molds or muffin tin


  1. Combine coconut oil, beeswax, shea butter, and cocoa butter in a 16-ounce glass measuring cup.
