      Luxurious homemade lotion recipe There are endless variations, but some of my favorites are: Calendula and Chamomile for baby Rosewater and Almond Oil Peppermint, Wintergreen and Ginger for sore muscles Coconut and Calendula for face Mint and green tea Lavender and vanilla I’ve included my basic recipe below. You can customize by making different herbal bases in the liquid, using different oils, or even using cocoa butter or shea butter for half of the oil if you like more of a body butter consistency. Organic Homemade Lotion Basic Ingredients: 1/4 cup of oil of choice (almond and coconut are good choices- coconut will make more of a body butter texture) 1 tablespoon of beeswax 1/3 cup distilled water, or brewed herbal infusion of choice (To make: boil distilled water, add herbs you are using and let sit until mostly cool) 1 tsp Vitamin E oil (important-to preserve) Essential oils of choice (optional) NOTE: I get my oils, beeswax, cocoa butter, etc from Mountain Rose Herbs How to Make: In a double boiler (use an old bowl over a small saucepan that has water in it) put the oil and beeswax and stir over medium heat until the beeswax has just melted. Remove from heat, add the vitamin E oil and essential oils and stir to combine. Make sure water or herbal infusion is slightly warm but not hot (important step or the lotion won’t emulsify) Put the water/herbal infusion in a blender or food processor and turn on high. VERY SLOWLY add the oil mixture, starting with a drop at a time. Continually drizzle the oil mixture into the blender until all poured in. Check consistency and blend more if needed. Store in a glass jar (or pump bottle if you use almond oil and have a thin enough consistency). Lasts up to two-months out of the fridge or up to 6 months in the fridge.
