The last time I made body cream, I made a lot. A lot lot. So much that I couldn't use it all before the allotted time to use it. So when I found this super, simple recipe that makes little batches at a time, I was sold. Trust me. If I can do it, you can too!
Super Simple Homemade Lotion
adapted from gorgeouslygreen.com
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon shea butter
2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
2 teaspoons aloe vera gel
10 drops essential oil
1 dark colored glass container
1. Place all ingredients in a blender or immersion blender cup.
3. Put some rubbing alcohol on a paper towel.
4. Rub the inside of the glass container (sterilize).
5. Use. Should be good for a few months, but I think that it will be gone by then.
*There is some grit to this lotion due to the shea butter. But, it quickly as you rub the lotion onto your skin. If you are a bit, how can I say this, anal, you can melt the ingredients in a double boiler, let cool, add essential oils, and then mix together. No grit.
