Recently I got a big jar of Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil in the mail and it was just staring at me on the counter...waiting to be used. So I decided it was time for me to try out this recipe. This lotion recipe is really simple and only takes 2 ingredients. I think next time I will add a little beeswax to mine as I felt like it was a little too greasy for my tastes. The recipe works great for arms and legs and a little goes a long way. I don't really like it on my hands but then I've never been a fan of any lotion on my hands!
Coconut Oil Lotion
What you need:
Here's what you need, a mixer, the oil, the vitamin E, and a bowl! You could also use a stand mixer but I didn't feel like cleaning mine. The hand mixer worked just fine! Note that I also used Gold Label Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions. This one still retains a little of the coconut scent. I actually really liked that in this lotion!
Measure out your coconut oil and add in the vitamin E. This is my before shot. See how the oil is kind of lumpy?
Then....mix! This picture was after about 2 minutes.
You will want to mix for about 7 minutes total.
I put mine in a jar with a plastic screw lid to store on my bathroom counter. Like I said above, a little goes a long way with this lotion! If you want to complete your homemade creams collection you will also want to check out my post on homemade Vaseline!
