Homemade Natural Body Lotion Recipe
1 tsp of beeswax
1 tsp of shea butter
2 tsp of coconut oil
4 tsp of olive oil
2-3 drops of essential oils (optional)
An empty pot or jar for storage
How to make your homemade lotion
In a small saucepan, heat the shea butter and beeswax over a low heat until melted.
When the shea butter and beewswax are completely melted, remove the saucepan from the heat, and add in the coconut and olive oil.
Stir well to combine the all ingredients together. Add in the optional essential oils.
As the mixture cools, it will start to thicken. Once cool, pour into your container of choice. I like to use glass mason jars.
Apply as you would your usual body lotion. This homemade lotion is very nourishing so you should find that a little goes a long way.
Store homemade body lotion in a cool, dry space and use within one month.
