Electric hand mixer
Silicone mold of your choice
1tablespoonvitamin E oil
1tablespoonsweet almond oil
10dropslavender essential oil
3tablespoonsnon-nano particle zinc oxide powder
Add the shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax pellets to a double boiler over medium heat, and stir frequently until it's melted and clear.
Remove the pan from the heat, then stir in the vitamin E oil and sweet almond oil until well combined.
Add the lavender essential oil, then stir until well combined.
Whisk in the zinc oxide, slowly and carefully. It's best to wear a face mask while you do this step so you don't inhale the zinc oxide. If you need to use a hand mixer to get it fully incorporated, you can transfer it to a large mixing bowl.
After everything is evenly incorporated, pour the mixture into your silicone mold and allow it to cool completely. You can place the silicone mold on a cutting board or cookie sheet and place it in the fridge for a couple of hours to expedite the process.
Once the sunscreen bars are completely cooled, store them in an airtight container, like a mason jar, in fridge until ready to use.
Be sure to immediately wash everything as zinc oxide can be difficult to clean up. Make sure to use hot, soapy water for best results.
