Choose which type:*:

Choose between shea butter or cocoa butter. You can sub in the same amount using your favorite recipe. Lotion making is easy; you only need a few pieces of equipment from your kitchen (a Pyrex measure glass and a pot, and any type of "mold" you want to use to pour your lotion into - can be ice cube trays, muffin pans or small loaf pan). Kit includes: 4 oz naturally refined shea butter or cocoa butter, 4.5 oz beeswax, 4.5 oz 76 degree coconut oil, 4 lip balm tubes, one pocket sized Beesilk bar (so you know what you're making), a medicine dropper, and instructions. *DIY Kit can make 1 batch of diaper rash cream (by also adding 1 order of zinc oxide to your purchase) OR 1 batch of Beesilk Jr. (Choose shea butter for this) You have enough ingredients to make both diaper rash cream (add 1 order of zinc oxide) and Beesilk Jr if you contribute an few additional ounces of coconut oil from your kitchen cupboard. These recipes are in the baby edition of the My Buttered Life e-book. *DIY Kit can make 2 batches of sunscreen from the summer edition of the My Buttered Life e-book with TWO zinc oxides added.

Here's a summary:
The kit alone comes with all the ingredients and recipes to make a batch of approximately 12 pocket size lotion bars, plus 4 lip balms. The recipe comes in the box to make those two products, along with other recipe instructions in case you want to adapt the amounts and make something like hair butter instead of lotion bars. If you wanted to make rash cream instead, you can add zinc oxide to the DIY kit order and make the rash cream (recipe is included in the kit). Or sunscreen. So, it's basically a starter kit with options. Alternatively, you could instead purchase the individual ingredients from us once you know exactly what you want to make. I occasionally swap out which e-book comes with the kit so that people who come back to re-order the kit have a new e-book to look at. The recipe instructions for what can be made with the kit, however, are always included.
Follow these easy instructions to make your own hard lotion bars and lip balms

  • Easy to make; cost savings; ideal for gift-giving; make it your way... add essential oils!

Excellent Products & Customer Service September 20, 2016
Reviewer: Laura P from Fort Worth, TX United States  
Over the past three years I have bought the DYI Lotion & Lip Balm Kit as birthday presents for my friends. I get together with my friend and we make the lotion & lip balms together. We have a blast and everytime I use my products I smile thinking about that day :))

Renee provides excellent customer service as well which is  a real plus these days!

I also buy my lotion and lip balm ingredients from Made On. I've pretty much perfected my lip balms. Everyone loves them!

Renee thank you so much:))

Reviewer: annie from alvin, TX United States  
I bought myself one a few years ago and it's great. Excellent instructions, sources for ingredients, and a nice assortment of recipes. The lip balm and sunscreen I made are my absolute favorites!

Fun and simple kit April 30, 2016
Reviewer: Debra Harrop from Portsmouth, VA United States  
My friend and I started with this kit to get an idea of how to make products before we moved to the more complicated deodorant. Easy enough to do with kids (or have them make labels for you) and add your own essential oils. We were confused on the quantities of product vs how much lotion we would have.

Reviewer: Nancy from Augusta, GA United States  
It is a pleasure to do business with you . Fast, friendly ( like part of the family) service. Great products. Easy to do. Increase desire to learn and make more "green" items.
Thank you for the experience.
