Making Lotion Bars

If you have... split, dry and cracking heels
cac
ked, bleeding knuckles or fingers
sore and dry elbows
dry, flaky legs
chapped hands and cuticles from dry heat or cold weather
eczema-or dry itchy skin

facial wrinkles
These 100% natural lotion bars can be used anywhere on your skin!


They are made from 3 simple, pure ingredients: beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter in one solid lotion bar. 


Here's how it works: hold it in your hand and as your body temperature warms the bar, rub it into your skin. It instantly absorbs without a greasy feeling, and they are 100% natural.


This is my new adventure since I have stepped down from my job at the church to be able to stay home with Analeigh and start homeschooling Alyssa.  I am making and selling these bars. They work great-I have terrible, dry heals and Alyssa suffers from really dry, chapped hands that crack and bleed. So I was trying to find something that work for us-did some research and found out that these ingredients mixed together in this solid lotion bar form work great together to heal our dry skin. The heart shape and square shaped are 3 oz bars and they sell for $8.50.
The little round bar is 1.5 oz and they sell for $6.50 You can special order them in larger sizes (I can let you know the prices per ounce and with different scents as well. These have a hint of lavender-sweet orange-cucumber melon-tangerine or vanilla in them.  I also selling sample sizes for $1.50 each.  They can be shipped as well-depending on where you want them shipped to will depend on the cost of shipping.
I have ordered supplies to start making lip balms next week too-they will sell for $3.50 each but if you buy them with a $8.50 lotion bar a set will only be $11.00.

They are made of 100% all natural of the following ingredients:
SHEA BUTTER-a soft, effective moisturizer which comes from the nut of a shea tree in Africa, known to help ease the symptoms of such extremes as eczema and psoriasis
COCONUT OIL, also a moisturizer, with a low melting point for quick absorption.
BEESWAX, seals the two above ingredients into the skin, acting as a glove that protects the skin from the harsh elements. The great part of the lotion bar is that it not only takes the pain away, it leaves your skin smooth and healthy. It truly nourishes the skin. When it comes to skin problems, shea butter has proven to be the most effective ingredient for soothing chapped skin, sealing minor cuts and scrapes, fading rashes and smoothing chafed skin. The hardness of the beeswax seals in the moisturizing oils of the shea butter and coconut oil, to help heal cracked, bleeding heels and finger cuts when the lotion is applied, and the soothing ingredients work together to bring relief to the pain of split skin on your hands and feet. Together with coconut oil and shea butter, the three to create a lotion bar that rubs on.
Just let me know if you want to order some!  They make great gifts too.
Thanks for letting me tell you about my new adventure.
On His Pathway-

Blessings on your new business.
What is funny is that I prayed for you today while walking...I prayed for provision as you stepped out in obedience, so this encourages me. I will continue to pray...Blessings
