Body Shimmer Lotion Bar.


  • 1 Tbs Cocoa Butter (or Shea butter)

  • 1 Tbs Beeswax.

  • 1 Tbs Raw Coconut Oil.

  • 1 Tsp Argan Oil.

  • 15+ Drops Essential Oils of your choosing. (Optional)

  • 1/2 Tsp Stardust Pearl Mica.

  • 1/4-1/2 Tsp Golden Guava Mica.


  1. Add the first 4 ingredients in a glass jar.

  2. Add the jar to a slow cooker with 1-2 inches of hot water. Set on low/medium.

  3. Stir every few minutes until melted.

  4. Once melted add the essential oils and mica.

  5. Mix well.

  6. Add to your container/mold and let harden.

I personally used Stardust Micas (available on Amazon) for this project. They have cosmetic grade mica in many amazing colors. I highly recommend their products but you can definitely use any brand cosmetic grade mica. You can also play around and add more or less mica depending on the level of glow you want. Let me know if you try this and what color you decided to go with! 💕
