These luxurious lotion bars are “activated” by the warmth of your skin, which causes them to soften and glide on smoothly. Made with natural ingredients, they’re a fragrant, thoughtful gift. 

“Lotion bars are incredibly easy to make, and you get to control the quality of the ingredients going into the bars,” says Katie Peters, the blogger behind the recipe, originally featured on the site Thank Your Body. “The ingredients I use are rich, softening and moisturizing, and the essential oil has an energizing smell. Something about it just brightens my day and clears my head.”
