Lavender, you know....  the gorgeous purple flowering plant that has a reputation for emitting one of the most pleasant scents to come from a garden. It is said to be one of the most popular essential oils on the market and with good reason. Known for promoting relaxation, lavender essential oil has many other uses. Be sure to check out the link below for more information and tips on growing lavender.  But for now.... let's make some lavender essential oil massage bars!

These massage bars couldn't be easier to make. Whether you use the stove top or microwave it only takes a few minutes to mix up a batch and get them in the molds. Another few minutes chilled in the refrigerator and you have your own lavender essential oil massage bars. Not only do they smell amazing, but they are stunning to look at. The flecks of purple flowers add a special touch.

To use these massage bars, simply rub on the body like a bar of soap. The beeswax and coconut oil softens and coats the skin.

Add the shea butter to the melted oil and mix.  The warm oil should melt the shea butter on it's own.  If not, heat for a few seconds then remove. Stir in lavender oil.
