Homemade Baby Lotion Bars

I needed a baby shower gift and thought I’d make lotion bars hence the recipe for Homemade Baby Lotion Bars as a gift for a friend. They’re easy (holler!), good for baby (double holler) and cheap (can I get a woot?!) and that my readers is why I make stuff around here!

So the first thing you want is a mold. I have a heart silicone mold that I got from IKEA but you can grab one here. Then just a couple more ingredients and you’re good to go!


  • 1 cup of unrefined coconut oil
  • 1 cup of beeswax pellets
  • 1 tsp vitamin E oil
  • Essential Oils. I buy mine here. I used Gentle Baby but you could also use lavender.
  1. Take an old glass jar and add the beeswax pellets and melt them over a double boiler or in a pan of water.
  2. Add the coconut oil and let it melt.
  3. Let it cool for a couple of minutes and then add the vitamin E oil and Young living Gentle Baby oil.
  4. Pour into the silicone mold.
  5. Cool in the fridge.
  6. Pop out.
