These Woodsy Mint Lotion Bars do wonders on dry feet and cracked heels!

If you are one of the lucky ones that never get cracked heels, I’m jealous.

My feet usually get super dry during the winter time.

I don’t know if wearing socks and slippers around the house all day long has anything to do with it?

Or if it’s the super cold weather that loves to dry out my skin every year.

Either way, these Mountain Mint Lotion Bars have natural ingredients that are great for hydrating and soothing skin.

For the more solid ingredients, this recipe uses beeswax and unrefined shea butter to get a bar like texture.

Unrefined coconut oil and sweet almond oil are added for extra moisturization.

Explaining the Mountain Mint Lotion Bar title, I use cedarwood and peppermint essential oils to make you feel like your taking a hike through beautiful mountain peaks.

When breathing in the subtle aroma of these particular essential oils, you’ll be transported to a place where tall trees, colorful flowers, and nature’s wonders are at your fingertips.

This essential oil blend is that good!

I love using a minty scent when it comes to hydrating my feet.

After making them look all nice and pretty, the mint is like the cherry on top of a cake.

Feels like I’m at a spa!

If you’d like to make these and give out as gifts, simply place them in any type of container. I like to use the shorter mason jars, add a label and ribbon and you have yourself a thoughtful spa gift.

Below I have included free labels that you can download, print, and use for your amazing creations.

  • I included 2 different sizes depending on the size of jar you plan on using.
  • I use these Avery Full Sheet Stickers for all of my handmade health & beauty products.

Ingredients:



Directions:

In a double boiler on medium heat melt the beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil.

Mint Lotion Bars

Transfer to a mixing bowl.

Stir in the essential oils and mica pigment powder. Add the mica in small quantities until you get the color you desire. Be careful not to add too much or your lotion bar will be super sparkly once applied to the skin.

Pour your mixture into silicone molds and wait to solidify for about 3-4 hours. If you are in a hurry, place your molds in the fridge for a faster drying time.

Mint Lotion Bars

Carefully pop out your lotion bars from the molds.


Sounds pretty easy right?

Use these Mountain Mint Lotion Bars on your feet or body.

Once you place this on your skin the ingredients will start to melt by your body heat and you can blend in.

In no time, you’ll be walking through the beautiful mountains smelling the pine trees and running with nature.

Sounds like a dream!

  1. Hi Rina! At the risk of sounding totally dumb….I am a beginner…. I was so intrigued with your Mountain Mint Lotion bars I ordered all of the supplies in your list and a couple of different molds, while I know decorative molds wouldn’t be a necessity, the way I end up doing things I figure “Go big or go home” right! Well I finally received everything but now am trying to find out if there is any sort of preparation for the silicon molds prior to using them. I’ve tried everything I can think of to look it up on the internet, but cannot find anything relating to mold preparation for lotion bars. I am not a novice to baking but have never been inclined to use the new silicon molds therefore I am not sure if preparation of the molds is needed for the lotion bar process. I need your help so I can proceed in making the lotion bars. They sound wonderful and am hoping they will help my heels and feet, realy looking forward to trying this. Thanking you in advance for your help.

    1. Hi Carla, no question is a dumb question! We all have to start somewhere 🙂 In regards to your silicone molds, as long as they are silicone, you do not need to prepare them in any way. Follow the recipe and once your lotion bars are completely solid, simply push on your molds and the bar will pop right out! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I love helping out!

  2. I have to tell you how awesome these are! i had to throw out my fitted sheet because my rough heels put a hole in it that kept getting bigger. After using these for one week, my heels are softer than they have ever been. Thank you, Thank you!

  3. Hi there, I’m fascinated with this recipe. Your recipe is very thorough and clear, and I can’t wait to try it out, but my question is, how do you use it? Do you just rub the little bar on your feet and leave it there? Or do you wash it off at some stage? Or do you use it in the shower? Please let me know as soon as possible.
    Regards,
    Karen

    1. Hello Karen, I’m so glad you’re going to give my Mountain Mint Lotion Bars a try! What you will do is rub the lotion bar into your feet and the heat of your skin will naturally melt the ingredients to make it feel like a lotion. You can then rub the lotion into your feet like you would with any other regular type of lotion. Do not rinse off, the natural ingredients will absorb into your feet making them feel soft and smooth. Please let me know if you have any other questions 🙂 Thank You
