- Making soap in the Forest House
No, the lotion bars I've made are sized to last awhile -- not individual use size. I usually put them in a small metal container with a press-fit top. The lotion bars I've made for these containers are firm enough that a bar will (usually) remain loose in the container. When you want to use it, you tip or shake the bar into your hand, let it warm a bit in your hands, apply, and then put it back in the container.
Another option for a formulation that's a bit softer is to put the product in a mini-size deodorant container or a jumbo 0.5 oz lip balm tube. I like this as well.
Gotcha. Thanks. I was thinking you were talking the little square mint sizes, about the size of a single gummi bear. And then I thought of the single use soap petals, and wondered if it was the same idea.
I have those tubes--I love the big lip balm tube for.....lip balm. But as I primarily use lotion on my hands, the tubes make it more difficult to navigate around the knuckles, etc.
