Make Your Own Body Lotion! DIY, NO CHEMICALS!!

Who is tired of all these good smelling lotions that these stores sell that smell really really good but make your skin sooooo dry?!?! I AM! Who is tired of these companies putting whatever they want into these lotions, and causing us harm.... (Johnson & Johnson)!?!? I AM!!!
I will now be making my own lotion!

What you will need:
1. a jar with lid
2. 1/3 cup of coconut oil
3. 1/3 cup of pure Shea butter
4. 10 drops of lavender essential oil (or whatever scent or oil you like)
5. 5 drops of chamomile oil (optional)

What you need to do:
1. Take the 1/3 cup of Shea butter and put it into the microwave to soften it up....about 30 seconds.
2. Mix in the coconut oil (must be at room temperature, not melted). Mix by hand or with mixer for 15 minutes until it is light and fluffy.
3. Now mix in your essential oils.
4. Transfer it to your jar with lid!!
That's it, takes about 20 to 30 minutes of your time BUT you will have lotion that has no chemicals whatsoever, and will leave your skin nice and smooth!

Enjoy guys and when I get my first batch of these done, I will share pictures with you all! Thanks for reading guys! You rock!

Oh nice Ermini2, another great DIY product that we can all use.

I agree with you, so many of these store bought products just moisturize a few minutes after putting them on and then suddenly my skin feels all dry again. I would feel so much happier knowing exactly what is in these products and having completely natural products... especially when it comes to my kids.

I'm just wondering now about how I can make variations to this cream. Here in South Africa we have Rooibos. Most commonly made into tea, but it is also great for your skin. I also have Aloe plants growing all over my front garden, another natural plant in South Africa.

It is brilliant for skin, and for burns including sunburns. I am now wondering if I can make our own aftersun cream Make Your Own Body Lotion! DIY, NO CHEMICALS!!

Thanks for this recipe, I truly need a lotion good enough for the whole day, usually I take a shower, then put some lotion, and after about 2 hours, I feel my skin dry again. A friend told me to add some antioxidants to my regular lotion, like Vitamin E pills or Aloe, so I will try to do this one and add the vitamins too, to see the results.

I remember making my own d.i.y lotion once, when I am fed with chemically based body lotions. I used aloe vera gel as a main ingredient and added coconut oil, rose essential oil.

Planning to try this one for sure. Hope it helps relieving my dry skin.

This is really an exciting and interesting piece of information, making your own body lotion could go a long way in saving you a lot of cost and expenses, if you are the body lotion applying type.

Personally, I don't really take to lotion application not that it's not good but I simply don't have time for it. Lotions practically makes me sweat a lot and it really makes me very uncomfortable when I am sweating.

But it's a good thing to make your own body lotion, even if you can't or don't like applying them, if it's produced well you might make a sale of depending on your packaging because I believe that products packaging is one of the major way to improve its sales.

Can anyone explain to me what is Shea butter? I see Shea butter as an important ingredient in many cosmetic products mostly moisturizer and lotions but I don't know what it does to our skin.
You can use coconut oil as a body lotion and moisturizer, however, if your skin is too oily, this will not be very good for you.

Shea butter is the fat or butter (grease) you can get from shea tree, which is an African tree. That oily substance can melt easily on your body temperature, so that makes it great for cosmetic, medical, and food industry. Usually there are different types of it, depending how raw it was obtained. You can find it everywhere, from chocolates to soaps and shampoos.

This is a very nice idea. I really don't like artificial or chemical ingredients on skin products, especially paraben. I often see that ingredient in most skin care products. Paraben is an artificial preservative and it's bad for the health. It is also an ingredient included in formalin. I avoid using products that contain this ingredient. I like your idea. You have mentioned an essential oil in one of the ingredients, which is optional. We can choose whatever scent we want. Can I replace it with anything citrus? Perhaps a few drops of lemon or orange? I really love citrus smell. I love natural products. Thanks for sharing this. I will try this as an addition to my beauty regimen.

I have always been buying body lotions. I will like to try this homemade body lotion. I am wondering where I will actually get the shea butter from. Is there any shea butter alternative? The one thing that I like with your body lotion it is 100% natural and anyone can use it.

Body lotion is very important to me. I think I can't go out without a body lotion apply in my body. I planned to do my own lotion before but I don't know how to make one. Because sometimes, the store I always go to bought my lotion said they are out of stock. I will definitely try this because I can feel that it is like the lotion I use most of the times.

I have used different oils and vitamins that I have added in cream and lotion that I use the most. The last time I have added vitamin A and E, and some coconut oil.

Thanks for the receipe. I'm very interested in natural ingredients because I believe that everything we put in and on our bodies has some kind of effect. I love coconut oil because I can get it in plenty in my Country because we grow coconuts naturally. I also like Shea butter which I can get easily from a neighboring Country. I will definitely try to make this. I hope this works, when I tried to make my own soap it was a complete flop.
