Lately, I’ve been obsessed with making my own beauty supplies, so you will probably start to see a bunch of blog posts about my attempts. One of the first things that I need is some lotion. The winter always dries out my skin, and I have very dry skin anyway.
This recipe is very easy and I have to say, the lotion melts into your skin and makes it super soft. The best part is, you can get all the ingredients on Amazon.
You will need:
1/2 cup avocado oil (you can also use extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, or almond oil)
1/4 cup beeswax
1/4 cup coconut oil
Put a clean glass jar in the middle of some water and start to boil it.
Add all the ingredients. The easiest way to add the coconut oil (without heating it) is to scoop it out and put it in a measuring cup.
Now, you just have to boil all the ingredients. I picked up the jar with a pair of tongs and stirred the concoction around a few times, but you do not have to do that. Wait until it has all melted.
Melting the ingredients will take a bit. It should look like liquid oil.
Now, all you have to do is wait until it cools down and then mix it around to “whip” it.
Here is the end result.
If you make this lotion, let me know how it turns out.
