If you haven’t found the perfect body lotion for you, there is a simple lotion: make your own. Here is the simplest method to make the perfect skin moisturizer. You need three ingredients: half a cup of coconut oil, a teaspoon of vitamin E oil and 5-7 drops of lavender essential oil.
With the help of vitamin E, the coconut oil will harden and thus you get a creamy consistency. Add the drops of lavender oil and mix. Store the mixture in a mat, sterilized container.
If you do not like lavender, you can add any other essential oil. If you choose a a powerful oil, such as mint, do not use more than five drops.
Here’s another recipe for homemade body cream: This recipe will guarantee an excellent moisturizer that will last up to six months. To make it, you will need half a cup of almond oil or olive oil, a quarter cup of coconut oil, a quarter cup of beeswax, a teaspoon of vitamin E, two tablespoons of Shea butter or cocoa butter.
Put all the ingredients into a heat resistant container and partially cover it with a lid. In a pot, put three cups of water and heat it on the stove. Place the bowl over the pot and start to gently mix the content to help them melt and homogenize. Before pouring the mixture into a sterilized jar, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
You can also make your own body oil. Choose an oil of your liking. It can be almond oil, olive, buckthorn or Argan. This is the base of the body oil. This base must occupy a third of the container in which you will store the body oil. Complete the rest with another oil of your choice. To give it a pleasant scent you can add a few drops of roses or oranges essential oils. You can also add a teaspoon of vitamin E oil to make the body oil even more nurturing for the skin.
