Lavender Love Lotion Bars

I have purchased a few "massage bars" from Lush before, so when I learned how easy it is to make homemade lotion bars, I was excited to try it out.


I've moved to a new website! Head on over to Heartful Habits for the Lavender Love Lotion Bars recipe. Thanks!

  2. Trying this too! I love Lush products and have tried their massage bars! I'm particularly addicted to "Flying Fox" shower gel (can be used as shampoo as well...my favourite!)

  3. So do you think there would be a way to add something to these to repel Mosquitos?

    I looked into it and these are the options I found for natural mosquito repellents:
    Citronella Oil
    Lemon Eucalyptus Oil
    Cinnamon Oil
    Castor Oil
    Rosemary Oil
    Lemongrass Oil
    Cedar Oil
    Peppermint Oil
    Clove Oil
    Geranium Oil

  5. Ok, so I am a little confused. They look pretty firm. Do you use them in the shower or just rub them on you skin afterwards? I have been wanting to make skin care as well as household cleaning products for a couple years now but am just getting started. So excited to find many different options.

    1. Hi Andrea-->in a nutshell, *wink* certain oils melt at skin temperature, which makes them very nice to use as lotion "bars". It is not necessary to use them while you are in the shower unless you just want to.

  6. @Andrea They are firm. You rub them over dry skin as as moisturizer. Or they could be used for massages as well. If you check out my (currently) most recent post, there is an opportunity to win some right now.

    1. I actually used empty toilet paper rolls. I put the bar inside and then folded in the open sides to make a pillow box.

  10. For some, its embarrassing to receive a sizegenetics on a man with a traditional setting because they cannot avoid their physical reaction to another man's touch, especially that of an attractive sizegenetics. However, if you happen to order a gay sizegenetics, your reaction isn't really embarrassing; in fact, it should be expected. You're able to enjoy the sizegenetics to its fullest in addition to bask slightly of your own physical arousal. Then, whenever the sizegenetics is done, you can move on with your sizegenetics or you will send him home; an opportunity is yours.
