Solid Bath Oil Bars

2 ounces deodorized cocoa butter or mango butter
2 ounces beeswax, refined beads
2 or 3 ounces liquid vegetable oil such as jojoba, sunflower, or sweet
2 teaspoons of essential oil or fragrance oil of your choice
1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Jojoba Wax Spheres in color of your choice

Melt first oil (hard oil) and pour two ounces into 8 oz Pyrex measuring cup.

Add two ounces of beeswax beads (total of four ounces in cup). Add jojoba
wax spheres. Melt together in microwave.

Now add the liquid vegetable oil. Use 2 ounces for a hard bar, which would
bring your total to 6 ounces or 3 ounces for a softer bar for a total of 7
ounces. Stir to mix thoroughly.

Add essential oil or fragrance oil when mixture has cooled slightly. Pour
into small soap molds. Pop out when cool, about two hours. For best results,
put in refrigerator for a few minutes before popping out of mold.

- Wet hands and rub with lotion bar
- Rub on body when getting out of shower while still damp
- Use as drawer sachet
- Cut off a sliver and let melt in hot bath water
- Massage into cuticles to soften them
- Rub into elbows and knees Massage - use softer bar recipe.

Another hard oil you can use is Shea Butter
- use 2 ounces of liquid oil with this in addition to the beeswax. It makes
a very nice bar, especially when using essential oils and jojoba.

You can also use our regular, chocolate smelling cocoa butter. Use scents
such as peppermint or spearmint oil which will compliment the chocolate
smell of the cocoa butter.

Use sunflower oil when you want a lotion bar that absorbs readily into your
skin. Sweet Almond oil is great for cuticles and for a heavier, more
moisturizing bar.

* 4 ounces white chocolate
* 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate*
* 12 dipping strawberries with long stems
Prepare a pan with parchment or wax paper on it. In separate bowls, melt
each chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir if possible, melt
for another 15 to 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Dip clean and dry
strawberries in chocolate(s).
Carefully set them on the prepared pan. Refrigerate until hard. (Just a
couple of minutes.) Store in the refrigerator. Should be eaten within a
day or so.
*The better quality the chocolate, the better quality the strawberries.
Prefer bittersweet or another kind of chocolate? Use it or them instead.

For this recipe, I dipped a strawberry in the chocolate and then took a
toothpick and drizzled some white chocolate over the dark chocolate.
