Pamper yourself or a loved one with a homemade moisturising massage bar. You can use a massage bar to moisturise your skin, the same way you'd use a traditional lotion. Instead of applying liquid lotion from a bottle, simply rub the massage bar over your arms and legs and massage the rich emollients into your skin. Using a handmade moisturising bar will leave your skin soft and smooth. As a treat, give the bars to friends and family members as luxurious holiday and birthday gifts.
