Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. In a dedicated pot and on direct heat, melt the Beeswax. As that is melting, add the Cocoa Butter and Olive Butter. Stir occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and add the Shea Butter. Let this melt naturally in the pot. Stir and mix well.
  4. Add Avocado and Neem Oils. Stir. If necessary, you may return the pot to low heat until fully melted again.
  5. Add Colloidal Oatmeal. Stir until dissolved.
  6. OPTIONAL: If scenting, add 1% Essential Oil. This bar will have a natural aroma, mostly from the shea and cocoa butter. So it is not necessary to fragrance.
  7. Place plastic mold on a cookie sheet. Once temperature of liquid is between 135-140°F, pour into mold.
  8. Once hardened, unmold and cut.
  9. These will be soft after cutting. Let sit out to harden overnight for ease of packaging.
  10. To Package: Wrap each bar in clear plastic wrap, then place in a glassine bag. Add label and/or use pawprint stamp to decorate bag.

"Unfortunately, my dog only wanted to eat this when I tried to use it on her. But I loved the feeling on my skin. Is there an oil I could exchange with the Neem so I could make it for people instead of dogs? Thanks."

"Hi, My daughter is allergic to avocado. Is there a different oil that I could use instead? I think she would really like this for her dogs but even touching avocado makes her break out in a rash."
