Instructions

    • 1

      Put 1 cup aloe vera gel, 1 tsp. lanolin and 1 tsp. vitamin E oil in a blender.

    • 2

      Mix the ingredients on low until thoroughly combined.

    • 3

      Put 1/3 cup coconut oil and 3/4 oz. beeswax in a microwavable bowl.

    • 4

      Microwave for 30 seconds on high.

    • 5

      Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the oil and beeswax together.

    • 6

      Microwave for another 10 seconds on high and restir. Repeat these two steps until the beeswax completely melts.

    • 7

      Stir 3/4 cup almond oil into the beeswax/coconut oil mixture.

    • 8

      Heat the mixture for 10 seconds in the microwave.

    • 9

      Turn the blender back on to medium speed, and slowly pour the beeswax and oil mixture into the blender.

    • 10

      Blend the contents until it achieves a texture like mayonnaise; this should happen fairly quickly.

    • 11

      Turn off the blender.

    • 12

      Add 1 teaspoon of an essential oil in a scent that you prefer. Lavender, vanilla and strawberry are some popular fragrances.

    • 13

      Set a funnel in the opening of the glass bottle that you'll use to store the lotion. It's a good idea to have two or three of them for storage, depending on the size of the bottles.

    • 14

      Scrape the lotion with a plastic spatula into the bottle. Do this quickly since the mixture will rapidly cool.

    • 15

      Store the lotion in a cool, dry place.
