So lately I've really gotten in making my own hygiene products. I've made homemade toothpaste, deodorant, and now skin lotion. Needless to say the lotion does cost a little more, but I'm am trying to repair scar tissue from childhood obesity and wanted to take a shot at making my own. The store bands do not seem to help much, plus everything in this recipe is all natural.
Homemade Skin Lotion
1/4 cup of good quality aloe gel
1/2 of coconut oil
1/2 cup of really good shea or cocoa butter (you could try a mix, I used shea because I had a really pure source)
2 tbs of beeswax
2 tbs of raw honey
2tbs of sunflower oil
2tbs of grapeseed, olive oil, hempseed, flax, or avocado
Your favorite essential oil(s)
I used tea tree oil and I also steeped two bags of chamomile tea so I wouldn't have to buy an extra essential oil
I'll put this stuff up against any store brand lotion, and best of all there are no harsh chemical or preservatives!
