Making your own lotion

Ok, first things for I have to say I haven't try this but I really want to! I think the biggest part is the look of it...it looks very messy, and detailed and that sort of puts me off of it, but I think I just need to put aside some time and give it a go!

Here is a list of what you need:

  • Blender
  • Spatula
  • Thermometer (meat)
  • Double boiler or pot with a measuring pyrex or bowl suspended in the water
  • Clean jars
  • Coconut oil (can also use jojoba or sweet almond)
  • Olive oil
  • Beeswax (100% pure)
  • Distilled or purified water
  • Borax
  • Essential oils
  • Optional aloe vera gel and vitamin E

All the other details for this great recipe are at An Austin Homestead. If you're not interested in this project you should still check out the blog! It's got lots of goodies I think you'd enjoy!
