Just in case you missed this article on DIY making your own lotion the first time we shared it a couple of years ago, we are republishing it. After Marne wrote this blog originally, we got an awesome response. This is one of the PYP Best Blogs!
My friend recently taught me how to make some incredible homemade lotion! I love this stuff. I have been using it for about a month now consistently and I have noticed my skin is much softer. I love how this lotion isn’t greasy yet it contains healthy minerals and vitamins for my skin. It is so easy to make!
First, gather up your ingredients. You will need:
16 oz baby lotion (I like using Johnson & Johnson baby lotion, but you can use whatever you like)
16 oz coconut oil (you can also use Vaseline if you don’t have coconut oil)
8 oz Vitamin E cream (found at Walmart in the lotion section)
This is what it looks like all whipped up! Nice and creamy. Don’t worry if there are small chunks of coconut oil. They melt easily when you rub it onto your skin. If your coconut oil is in larger chunks, you might want to soften it a little before mixing together. Just don’t melt it!
Granted, this makes A LOT of lotion, as you see. These two small containers will not fit the lotion. So use whatever container you like. As you keep making the lotion you will aquire more of the vitamin E containers to use.
If you make this and try it, let me know what you think! I love this lotion and am hooked on it forever!
