DIY Face and Body Lotion

So a few weeks ago I did a post on a homemade scrub, that could be used for face and body. If you haven’t read it head over and check it out 🙂 I’ve been asked by loads of people do I make all my own products, and the honest answer is no, but I have been experimenting more and more! In today’s post I’m going to share one such experiment and hopefully, you all like it 😀

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp of beeswax
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 1/4 cup rosewater
  • 4 drops Rose essential oil
  • 4 drops Rosehip oil
  • 6 tbsp almond oil
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil

In a bowl melt the oils and wax together over another bowl of boiling water(double boiler) and once fully melted place in a blender and let cool to room temperature, then blend on a low speed and increase to high all the time slowly adding the waters until smooth and creamy. Don’t worry about it separating if you add the water slow enough and over a couple of minutes it will emulsify with the oils. I just reused an old cream jar I got from my mom for storage, but you can use an airtight glass container or whatever you have handy.

Because this lotion has both oil and water it is super hydrating for the skin and leaves it feeling so silky smooth 😀 The rosewater and rose oil really help if you’ve got sensitive skin like myself, but can be switched out for any other essential oil you wish, just use an even 1/2 cup water instead! That’s the beauty of homemade products, even if you only need it once or for a few days, you can make this up depending on your skin’s needs and your personal preference 🙂

If you have any homemade products  you’d like me to let me know, or if you try this recipe let me know how it goes for you 🙂

All The Best
