    If you are still using store bought lotion on yourself or your family, there are super easy natural alternatives that are fun to make! This recipe has three basic ingredients and literally takes ten minutes to make!

    With this recipe, you can customize your lotion to your skin type and desired scent. The basic recipe is an ultra-moisturizing water-free version that last for years without preservatives. If you want a softer and less moisturizing lotion,

    Homemade Lotion Ingredients

    1/2 cup Almond oil  or Jojoba oil (or any other liquid oil). 1/4 cup coconut oil. 1/4 cup bees wax. one tablespoonVitamin E oil (optional)2 tablespoon Shea Butter or cocoa, mango butter avocado butter Butter (optional)Essential Oils, Vanilla Extract or other natural extracts to suit your preference (optional)

    How to Make Lotion

    Combine almond oil (or any other liquid oil), coconut oil and beeswax in a double boiler or a glass bowl on top. If using shea or cocoa butter, add it as well.As the water heats, the ingredients will start to melt. Stir occasionally as they melt to incorporate.When all ingredients are completely melted, add vitamin E oil (if using) and any essential oils or scents like vanilla.Pour into whatever jar or tin you will use for storage. Small mason jars are great for this. It will not pump well in a lotion pump!Use as you would regular lotion. This lotion is ultra-moisturizing and more oily than water-based lotions so you won’t need to use as much. It also has a longer shelf life than some homemade lotion recipes since all ingredients are already shelf stable and not water is added. Use within 6 months for best moisturizing benefits. nice isn't it...
    have a pleasant evening
    Stay beautiful.
