I love the convenience of these Solid Moisturising Bars when I am travelling and don’t want to run the risk of my beautiful DIY butters and balms liquefying in the car. These bars are deeply moisturising for dry skin. They also make gorgeous gifts; you can make them weeks in advance, so there’s no excuse not to get busy in the kitchen and stock your gift cupboard.
I’ve made this quick video to show you just how easy they are to make. The high ratio of beeswax means that the mixture sets quite quickly, so don’t leave this one in your bowl too long before filling your moulds. Also, note that you can sub the beeswax for candelilla wax (handy to know if you’re a vegan) – just halve the quantity.
