How to Make Hard Lotion Bars for Dry Skin Ingredients: 4.5 oz beeswax, 4 oz shea butter, 4 oz coconut oil. Combine pre-measured ingredients in a double boiler. Melt, stir well, and pour into molds (or use turkey baster to fill mold with melted lotion). Molds can be plastic or metal. Ice cube trays and cupcake pans both work great. Allow lotion to completely cool before popping out and using. For ease in removing from mold, place in freezer for 30 minutes and then remove.
