Calming Lavender Lotion - Recipe
Posted on May 31 2016
This lotion makes for a great bedtime treat, or a wonderful DIY present for a loved one. You can also play with different style containers and decorations to enhance the visual appeal for your bathroom.
1/3 cup Organic Coconut Oil
2 tbsp beeswax
5 drops of Paradise Springs Lavender Oil
1. Melt the coconut oil and beeswax together in a double boiler on your stove top. Once melted, add lavender oil and remove from heat. Let the mix cool completely in ambient temperature.
2. Optional: If desired, using an electric beater, you can whip the cooled lotion. It adds air to the mixture while providing a smoother consistency.
3. Your lotion is ready to go! Since there is no water added to this mix, it should be shelf stable until the expiration date of the coconut oil you used. Transfer to the container of your choosing. We like to recycle Jam jars, and add interesting fabric to the top. Let your imagination run wild, and send us your creations!
