These pretty DIY lotion bars are a great way to spoil friends and family for Easter! And the simple ingredients means that you don’t have to worry about allergies and other sensitivities when gifting them! You can mix up as many different scents, inspired by traditional Easter colours, as you like:

What you’ll need for a lavender (purple) bar:

What you’ll need for a rose & jojoba (pink) bar:

What you’ll need for a citrus (yellow) bar:

What you’ll need for a rosemary, eucalyptus & peppermint (green) bar:

Directions for All:

For all lotion bars, combine carrier oils in a small pot and melt over medium heat, stirring frequently. Then add your essential oil of choice. Place chosen decoration in the bottom of a square or rectangular baking dish, and then pour melted oils over top. Allow the bars to cool at room temperature, or place in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Pop the lotion bars out of molds, and then store in a cool, dry place. You can wrap them in clear wrap and arrange them in a basket for a great Easter treat for kids and adults. To use, simply rub the bar over your skin.

If you have any concerns about allergies, try a simple recipe of 1 cup coconut oil, 1 cup shredded beeswax, and 3/4 cup cocoa butter. Melt as before and pour into molds. Once cooled, you’ll have a gently moisturizing bar that smells like a chocolate coconut cookie!
