Homemade Hippie Body Lotion
1 cup Jojoba Oil
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
1/2 c beeswax pastilles
1/2 tsp Vitamin E oil
20 drops any essential oil
- Mix oils and wax in a glass jar or large glass measuring cup. Put this jar into a saucepan and fill pan with water, being careful not to get any water into the jar. Heat the water until wax/oil are melted, stirring occasionally.
- Let jar cool to room temp. Stir every 15 minutes to emulsify. After thickened, add vitamin E and essential oil.
I make this in a pint size canning jar, and keep it in that jar. Then I don’t have to worry about the messy process of transferring the lotion into a different container. You can use any oil that your prefer as long as the measurements stay the same. I have used grapeseed and almond oils. I’m trying to come up with the perfect combination for an eye cream next. I buy the organic oils and beeswax from Mountain Rose Herbs. I also do a alot of online ordering for Iherb. If you use the coupon code HIF798 you will receive a $10 discount and free shipping!
Need an anti-wrinkle cream? I am posting about that very soon!
