I do not think I have ever seen a lotion "bar". I like this idea not only because it is so novel but practical. Spills are not a good thing when traveling and we still need to moisturize. I am jumping all over this project.

This Homemade Shea Butter Lotion Bar Recipe reads easy to prepare. Interested in knowing where you purchase your shea butter. I see the small containers in the big box stores and it is a little pricy. This would be a great gift idea only if it turns out to be affordable.

Oh my goodness, this winter has left my hands feeling so dry! This DIY lotion bar recipe is just what I need!
