DJ’s HOMEMADE SKIN LOTION: Ingredients Listed below…
In a large mason jar, melt Shea butter, Cocoa butter, and beeswax, in top of double boiler…
TO USE A DOUBLE BOILDER…You will have simmering water in the bottom of your double boiler, but also put a bit of water around the base of your glass jar in the top of your double boiler.
As the Shea butter, Cocoa butter, and beeswax begin to melt in the glass jar, stir occasionally with glass stirring rod or stainless steel spoon…
Meanwhile beat together all other ingredients on high speed with electric or stand mixer in a glass or stainless steel bowl…When ready, use oven mitts to carefully remove mason jar from top of double boiler and pour the 3 melted ingredients into your bowl…
Continue beating until creamy. NOTE: If your coconut oil is a soft solid at room temperature, it will melt and mix in readily as you add the hot melted ingredients.
Once well beaten on high, and very smooth, stir in your 100.00% pure therapeutic grade essential oils (start with 5 drops each YLTG Lavender, and Frankincense, then customize further to suit your specific skin care needs).
Pour into small glass jar(s) and refrigerate until firm. A rubber spatula comes in handy to ‘scrape’ the last of your cream into your jars. This recipe makes enough to fill 2 to 3 small jars. Fasten lids and place in refrigerator for an hour to ‘firm up’. Does not need to be kept in the fridge.
Research and add whatever pure essential oils you choose for your own skin care needs.
