Soaps to Lotion…… for now

Every now and then its good to take a step back and evaluate how you’ve been doing something and the reasons or even the method of doing it. And so we’ve decided to take a step back from our soap making…. for a time at least. And instead dabble in a little lotion making.

The recipe simple, ingredients all natural and product chemical free.

1/2 cup Sweet Almond oil, 1/4 cup Coconut oil, 1/4 cup of beeswax, 1 tsp of Vitamin E oil, and 1 tablespoon of Shea butter.

Heat the ingredients together in a double boiler and ta daa. Your left with a very soothing lotion, great for the extra dry skin that rears its ugly head in these bitter cold months.

You’ll likely find the homemade version to be a bit more oily then the store bought, but I’ll trade a little extra oiliness over the chemicals any day : )

Make your own, or feel free to order from us and let us know what you think.
