      Hi Monica,

      There are several companies (doTerra, Young Living, etc.) that sell essential oils and my friends rave about their quality. I purchased mine from a seller on E-bay after reading positive reviews. I am not an expert on oils, but these worked perfectly for my soaps and lip gloss that I made. Here is the link: http://www.ebay.com/usr/wf-medical Hope that helps!

    Although lemon/lime can be a wonderful scent, be very careful using it & sun exposure. Citrus essential oils can cause sun sensitivity. Skin can be more sensitive to sunlight & can burn easier. Just use caution when applying a citrus lotion & limit time in direct sunlight.

    I just made my first batch of these (minus the vit e oil and using cocoa butter), and I am in love with them!

    I work in child care, so I’m always washing my hands and they get very dry, sore and cracked. After two uses my hands feel better than they have in years. They’re no longer sore or dry, and the cracks seem to be healing already.

    Thank you for sharing the recipe :)

      Yay! Your hands sound like mine! I couldn’t believe the results after the first few days. No more cracked knuckles. Glad they helped you to!!

    How can I measure 2 oz if the products are solid or should I melt down then measure?

      Hi Karen, I just use a small kitchen scale to measure them. You could also melt them down, that would work too!

    Pinned. These are a great little homemade gift idea – and I’ll have to keep one for myself. I get dry hands in the winter, too!

      Thank you, Lisa! The winters are so rough on my hands, but the lotion bars really help!
