Nourishing Face Lotion

Chelsea
Create the perfect lotion for your skin type in just a few minutes.
Total Time 10 mins

Ingredients
  

  • Stick blender or food processor or regular blender
  • Sterilized glass jars recycled or purchased
  • 3/4 cup oil 6 oz My favorite combination is Grape seed, Apricot Kernel, Evening Primrose, and Rose Hip, but the possibilities are endless.
  • 1/4 cup 2 oz Shea butter (could sub coco butter or coconut oil)
  • 1 tablespoons beeswax pellets
  • 1/4 cup organic aloe
  • 3/4 cup distilled water
  • 1/2 -1 teaspoon essential oils of choice my favorites skin blends are Soft Skin by Rocky Mountain Oils, Anti-Age by Plant Therapy

Instructions
 

  • First, melt your shea butter and beeswax in your oils over LOW heat.
  • Let the mixture cool until almost room temperature. The recipe works best when all ingredients are the same temperature.
  • Add your aloe, distilled water, and essential oils.
  • Finally, use your stick blender to mix until you reach the desired consistency. (It is much easier to do this with a stick blender, but you could use a food processor or a regular blender if you don't have one.)
  • Store in a sterilized airtight glass container and store in the refrigerator.
