Nothing is better than making homemade lotion bars, and if you can’t make them the next best thing is purchasing them handmade. It’s a big difference then the stuff you find at most big box stores. While I was making lotion bars for the body shop. I decided I would make some for my sister and her friends; adding a little bit of color with a fruity scent. I also wanted to give you guys the recipe so you could try it, but once I added the kool aid everything went downhill!
I spent an hour trying to get the lotion bars to turn colors and they never did. I just kept adding more kool aid until it all floated to the bottom of the liquid. I got desperate and decided to add a few drops of food coloring , well that just floated to the top of the liquid like lava. I thought maybe once I pour the mixture into molds and let them set they would turn colors. Well they didn’t and I was at a total lost!
I had a big mess on my hands! Even though the lotion bars were nice, the grit from all the kool aid made it a waist and I had to throw them out. Just like with the fish fertilizer in my garden I learned another lesson about adding food coloring and flavor packets to lotion bars. I am currently working on a lotion bar recipe with added colors!
