I have a ton of lotion, but I have no idea what kind of junk is in it. I’ve made my own semi-hommade lotion before, but it doesn’t really count because it was a mixture of different lotions. I’m not wild about the smell of baby lotion anyway. So, I decided to make my own real lotion. I’ve read that you can make lotion out of coconut oil and I had refined coconut oil left over from my last attempt. Why not give it another shot, right?
Add in your essential oils.
FYI: Don’t use a blender or food processor to mix it up. The blades move to fast and it will just become an oily consistency.
Let it sit for a few hours (some people have recommended refrigerating it, but mine was fine without it. Then you can use it.
It was a bit more oily than I like, but not overly oily. It works VERY well though. I might try it with the unrefined coconut oil next week. I’ve been told that it has a more coconut-y scent and I love that smell. So, if you want to see that, come back next Monday!
