Homemade Lotion Bars

I personally LOVEEE lotion bars. I feel like they work better than just slapping on wet lotion. Just more convenient.

They tend to be expensive and I wanted to find a great source of information on them for you guys. Making them yourself will save you money even if the ingredients cost more when you purchase them, this is because you are creating WAY more for your money compared to buying just a single one pre-made.

Plus making shit is fun!

I have struggled with mental disorders my entire life, anxiety and depression being the main monsters. I was a child that was scared of everything and only cared about what others thought of me. I built up who I was based on what other people thought I was. Never truly creating my own personality.

I have been battling with this my entire life. And its only been since I was in my late twenties to figure out that I was living my life totally wrong for what I need to thrive.
