Healthy Homemade Holidays: Natural Lotion

Healthy Homemade Holidays: Natural Lotion

Women and men are increasingly looking for natural facial and body care products.  This face and body lotion delivers.  It is free of synthetic fragrances which tend to be primarily petroleum products, as well as artificial emulsifiers and preservatives.  This pure and natural lotion makes a great gift for the men or women in your life…or to enjoy yourself!

What you need:

A blender (preferably an older blender since the body butter can leave a residue)

A small- to medium-size glass bowl

A small saucepan

A spatula

Nice-looking jars to hold the body butter

Make sure all tools are sterilized before beginning.

See page 2 to learn how to make this rich and natural cream…

So wonderfully simple.

I think it's strange the ingredients in the list are different from the ones in the directions. Where are your proofers, Care2?

Thank you, Michelle. I like the fact that this natural lotion is so easy to make. My skin has become increasingly drier as each winter goes by and your ingredients make a lot of sense to me.
