    1. It can be a bit tricky. There are several things you can try: (1) try increasing the heat while giving a good whip (not too much or it will become a glob), (2) adding a small amount of an emulsifier can help (note, it may change the color a bit) such as sunflower lecithin or xanthan gum, (3) try swapping the olive oil for jojoba oil (jojoba can act as an emollient, which can help bind the ingredients together better), or (4) add in a teaspoon of shea butter with the honey.
      Let us know if any of these helped and we will update the recipe. Thanks for writing.

    1. Hi Sharin,

      Absolutely, just look up a list of carrier oils to use for making lotion bars and you can substitute any of those that fit your requirements.
