We live in a time when we care a lot more what we are eating, to be healthier, it is a good idea to check with what we are ‘feeding’ our own skin (which is the biggest human organ). For that reason, we have to take into consideration the ingredients, that we use to nurture our skin. If you look at the back of the body lotion bottle and read the ingredients, you will get dizzy of their number and names, most of which are unknown for you.
Instead of reading etiquettes and thinking how to avoid these poisonous ingredients, why don’t you make homemade body lotion with the help of only three ingredients – coconut oil, cocoa oil and etheric or aroma oil (lavender, rose or another). When you do that once and see the benefits, you won’t think again about buying ready to use body lotions. And you will see for yourself how great the aroma is when you try the homemade lotion for the first time.
The organic oils like coconut and cocoa oil you can find in any store for bio cosmetics. If you don’t know where to find a store like that, you can find the ingredients online and purchase them from the web.
When you have all of the ingredients, you are ready to go. Mix equal parts from the oils and melt them on low heat until they become liquid, but don’t boil them. The exact quantities of the oils you will decide for yourself, but the preparation of the body lotion won’t take more than a couple of minutes.
After you melt the oils, put 5 or 10 drops from the etheric or aromatic oil. Mix well the whole mixture. It will become white and soft – this will indicate that the lotion is ready, so you can remove it from the fire and transfer it to another container. You can buy plastic or glass containers in the online shops for homemade cosmetic, but you can also use a jar or something else from your kitchen.
You can guess by yourself that you can experiment and make homemade body lotion with another oils. The basic idea is the same and the ingredients can be by your own choice.
