I’ve never tried to make my own lotion before today, but I would say the experience went well. Although, this is a semi-homemade lotion I still plan on making my own from scratch someday; I just have to do a bit more research. It seems like some people like using coconut oil with baby lotion and vitamin E lotion but I wanted this to be more fragrant. None of the vitamin E lotion that I found was scented and I didn’t want to mess with essential oils just yet. So, I substituted coco butter. I thought about using almond oil but I’ve never used that before and didn’t want to risk the experiment just yet. I know that all three of these are very hydrating, which is what I was going for. I like that this lotion isn’t heavy or greasy so it doesn’t leave a film on my skin. It seems to be working well so far and smells pretty good 🙂
Things You Will Need:
Bottle or jar
Measure 8oz. of baby lotion into your bowl.
Followed by 8oz. Shea butter.
And finally, 4oz. coconut oil. It looks like some people use melted coconut oil but I would rather just smash it up with my spoon. Seems to work pretty well.
Mix the ingredients thoroughly.
Bottle it up! Put the excess in a tightly sealed bottle or jar and store for later.
