DIY Massage Bars
These bars are great. They come together in an instant, they mold wonderfully into any shape you need, and melt right at body temperature. The beeswax and cocoa butter smell wonderful, and they do a great job of moisturizing your skin and make a beautiful medium for a massage. They also store really well.
You can find anything useful around the house to set them in, soap molds are ok if you have them, measuring cups, or cupcake molds, make great molds for these bars; you can pour a centimeter or two of the molten mixture into the bottom of a cup (proportionate to the size of the cup). Once it sets up, the bar will pretty much just fall out. For smaller applications, I’ve found little silicone chocolate molds do quite well. That’s what I’m using for these ones; they’ll make great stocking stuffers wrapped in a bit of cellophane like a candy.
