D.I.Y.


Home made body lotion results

This was such a fun and easy process! Thanks to the Wellness Mama for the ideas and simple d.i.y. tutorials to follow. She has a beautiful site and is such an inspiration, she makes all of her own beauty,  hair and cleaning products for her whole family. Even make-up!

So far I’ve tried these recipes: Winter Bliss Lotion Bars, Shea Butter Lotion Bar Sticks,  Whipped Body Butter & Luxurious Lotion Recipe. They all turned out great, see below!

I love how fluffy the Whipped Body Butter turned out. I didn’t use any essential oils because it already smells delicious. The lotions are on the greasy side because they are just natural oils, so they need time to soak into the skin. My favorite out of the bunch are the Lotion Bars, they are so easy to apply, especially onto your legs. Now I keep a lotion bar in my gym bag, after a workout and a steam, my skin just drinks it right up! I’ve already given some of my homemade goodies to girlfriends, so I’ll be trying another batch very soon. I’m going to try using Mango Butter instead of Cocoa Butter, the chocolate scent is a bit overpowering for me and I love all things mango and coconut. Yum!

I found all the ingredients and empty deodorant containers on Amazon. Mountain Rose Herbs is a great company to buy these ingredients from as well, I will probably use them next time.
