We make our lotion bars with wax from our own bees, shea butter, olive oil, and tapioca starch. They melt at about 98 degrees - just hold them in your hand for a moment to warm them. Then rub the lotion over your skin to apply. Don't leave them in the car on a hot day, but if you do, just set them in the fridge until they're sold again. Don't you just love a high quality lotion that's not too greasy or too thick and makes your skin sigh with happiness? They're small enough to fit in your pocket, backpack, or purse and you won't have to worry about them spilling.
