DIY Body Lotion

I finally figured out a recipe for body lotion that I like, both for how it feels and for how simple it is to make.

I used the above ingredients, adding the jojoba oil and the essential oil together first. Meanwhile I make the coconut oil liquid by placing the oil in a glass measuring cup, and putting the cup in a bowl of boiling hot water from my electric kettle. Once the oil is liquified (it won't be very warm), I add it to the other ingredients and stir it up. Then I pop it in the fridge to solidify, and whip it around with a fork after it's firmed up.

My sister says this might not work so well in the summer, so we'll see if I stay with it. Right now I'm happy with it. :)
