Giveaway: Body Bar


My Mom and I have made our own beauty products for as long as I can remember. In High School I had my own line of lip balm I’d sell to all my friends. One of my favorite things we make are solid body bars. Basically it is just a solid form of lotion. I love them in the summer because I store mine in the refrigerator and it feels so nice to moisturize my skin with a lovely chilled bar. But these are great year around, especially in the winter when the cold makes our skin so dry.

This week’s giveaway is for one of these bars. This particular batch is very natural. It has a slight earthy scent. I added a few drops of lavender and eucalyptus essential oils. The scent natural beeswax and cocoa butter are also noticeable.


I make each batch in my kitchen, in small batches. Each bar contains: beeswax, cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, lanolin, coconut oil,  lavender and eucalyptus essential oil and vitamin E.


You know the drill, all you have to do is comment on my blog. I’ll pick a winner from I’ll pick a winner next Thursday, September 29, 2011. Good luck!
