    Tired of standing in the lotion aisle of a store and picking up lotion after lotion, studying the ingredients, and being shocked by the amount of toxicity in even the most “natural” of brands. Most lotions contain chemicals and drying agents rather than rich moisturizers like you would expect. Make your own, all natural, free range, farm to table, organic, vegetarian, gluten free lotion bars!

    Hard lotion bars are incredibly easy to make and you get to control the quality of the ingredients going into the bars. This equals healthy and happy skin! Plus, most of the ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen!

    Your skin is your largest organ, so make sure you take care of it.
