How to make sore muscle massage bars (copycat recipe of Lush Wiccy Magic Muscles)

step 1:  add adzuki beans to the bottom of your silicone molds

tip:  make sure to cover the entire bottom of each mold cavity– this will become the top of your massage bars.  And it’s these adzuki beans that will act like magical little massage fingers in the lotion bar.

tip:  you don’t have to be too precise about this.  As long as the entire bottom is covered in beans, it will work and look great.  Adzuki beans have a nice way of lining themselves up into beautiful patterns.

tip:  it’s also okay to have a few beans in a second layer.  You just don’t want make a full second layer because if you use too thick of a layer of beans, your massage bar won’t be as sturdy and could break apart more easily.  So keep at one layer of beans (plus a few extra beans is okay).

step 2:  add the following to a heat-safe glass bowl or measuring cup

1.5 cups cocoa butter

1/3 cup shea butter

step 3:  melt butters using double-boiler method

To do this heat water in a saucepan over medium to medium-low heat until the water is gently simmering.

Then place the place heat-safe bowl/measuring cup in a pot of simmering water.

Stir occasionally.

Continue heating until the butters have completely melted.

tip:  don’t heat the butters too quickly or at too high of a temperature.  Shea butter needs to be tempered at a medium-low temperature.  If heated too hot, if can later become gritty.

step 7:  pour the mixture over the adzuki beans

tip: you want the butter/oil mixture to cover to a depth of about 2.5-3 times that of the beans.  With the silicone mold I used I poured the oil/butter about to about 2/3s the depth of each mold cavity.

step 8:  allow the massage bars to completely solidify before removing from the silicone molds

tip:  you can speed this up by putting them in the refrigerator to cool and solidify

step 9 (optional):  metal tins are a great way to store lotion bars like this.

tip:  They come in all different shapes in sizes.  If you have a tin, that’s a little larger than your lotion bars (like the tin on the bottom left below), you can customize the tin by adding a layer of adzuki beans to the bottom of the tin and then add your massage lotion bar.
