Curious: Handmade Lotion

I experimented with making lotion today. I think it turned out well. I was a recipe specifically for stretch marks but it feels like a nice thick lotion that could be used all over.

My Pinterest Homemade Beauty board has the link to the recipe I used. Here is the original recipe I halved the recipe as it seemed like it made a lot and I was just trying it out.

The recipe had olive oil, coconut oil, beeswax, vitamin e oil, rosewater and several essential oils. I modified it slightly to include some almond oil and some carrot seed oil. The essential oils I used were: lavender, lime, frankincense, and geranium.

The process was fairly messed and really need to be done in a food processor or high speed blender, but the result was a thick, not too greasy lotion. The best part: a super cute bunny jar to put it in.
