Vanilla Cream Massage Oil Lotion Bar Recipe

A rich, sensual, edible body butter lotion bar with vanilla and honey for silky-sweet skin!

This vanilla cream massage oil lotion bar recipe is simply sensational! It smells divine, tastes honey sweet AND makes your skin silky soft. It simply melts as you glide it on, with a rich smoothness that lasts and lasts.

It's one of my favorite body butter recipes (could you tell?) Not only is it deliciously decadent, but it's GOOD for you too - and not just for your skin!

It has no harmful or synthetic ingredients, so it's completely safe to use as an edible body butter. Yummmmm!

Vanilla Cream Massage Oil Lotion Bar Recipe


3 tablespoons (45g) Shea Butter

1 tablespoon (15g) grated Cocoa Butter

2 tablespoons (30ml) Virgin Coconut oil

2 tablespoons (30ml) Sweet Almond oil

1/4 teaspoon Vitamin E (or 1 capsule)

1 teaspoon (5g) Honey Powder OR confectioners (icing) sugar

6 drops Vanilla Absolute Essential Oil


  1. Put about an inch (2.5cm) of water in the bottom of a medium-sized pot and heat to a low simmer.

  2. Place the cocoa butter, shea butter and coconut oil in a large heat-proof glass measuring cup (such as Pyrex.) Place the measuring cup in the water and warm slowly over a low heat until the butters are melted.

  3. Stir in the almond oil.

  4. Remove from heat. Drop in the vanilla essential oil and whisk briskly to incorporate it into the liquid. Whisk in the Vitamin E and honey powder or sugar.

  5. Pour the hot massage oil lotion into small silicone soap molds or a silicone muffin tin. Let cool. When they're completely cool, remove them from the molds and wrap them in plastic until you're ready to use. Enjoy!

This massage oil lotion bar recipe makes approximately 4oz.

Customizing Your Massage Oil Lotion Bar Recipe

If you find the lotion bar too soft, simply re-melt it and add 1 tablespoon (15g) beeswax.

Also, you can add more or less honey powder or sugar depending on your taste preference. Same with the vanilla.
