Easy Homemade Lotion Recipes

When I started making homemade beauty products, lotions were one of the first things that I tried.

  1. Merissa do you sell the young living existential oils I was wondering about the company I love the lotions and moisturizer s recipe s keep up the good work Debbie

    1. I do not sell Young Living or any of the MLM essential oils. I do not agree with their views on ingesting essential oils. I usually buy my oils from Mountain Rose Herbs or from Azure Standard.

  2. I was searching some homemade products to add my skincare routine for taking best care of my skin. Homemade products are safe and can provide a real and lasting change to the skin. I will try these recipes. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Merida,
    Thank you so much for sharing these lotion recipes! It is very generous of you to share them, and I am excited about making them both. I am also interested in your book, “Little House Living” which is no longer in print. So I am wondering if additional copies may be published in the future?
    Thanks again, Gloria

  4. You have done a great job…I acknowledge your great efforts on these products. Thank you for sharing it so we can also be able to share it also to those ordinary people.
    Once again thank you so much.
