Because I can’t just let a good thing be, I got to thinking how nice it would be to have bandit’s/marauder’s oil in a lotion bar form. Then I remembered cocoa butter, and how just straight cocoa butter makes a pretty nice body Butter bar all by itself.
However, adding a healthy dose of essential oils would make it sticky, not solid, so it needed a little beeswax to help it regain what it lost. Because I wanted to store my bars in these little 2 oz containers I have, I chose to line them with a silicone cupcake liner first before pouring the melted concoction in and setting it in the fridge to set up.
After the cocoa butter, beeswax, and marauder’s oil had solidified again, I was left with two palm sized bars to soothe and disinfect my hands after I wash them. Fantastic! I may make some available in 2 oz tins if anybody ever wants one.
