Homemade Coconut Lotion

November 4th, 2012 | Posted by Angela Roberts in Going Greener | Homemade Natural Hygiene

It seems that most of my homemade hygiene products all share the same ingredient:  coconut oil.  I have been using coconut oil straight out of the jar to moisturize my skin and it works great but I have been missing the thick whipped lotions that I used to buy.  I decided to head to the kitchen and make my own homemade whipped body lotion using coconut oil.

This homemade coconut lotion requires only two ingredients.  It is super easy to make and great for your skin!  All you need is coconut oil and vitamin E.  You can also add a drop or two of essential oil if you desire.

Place 1 cup of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of vitamin E in a bowl.  It is best to use the coconut oil while in the solid form, I find that it whips best this way.  Then set your mixer or blender to mix and let it go for about 7 minutes.

You end up with thick homemade coconut body lotion.

I made sure to label the jar, my husband brushed his teeth with homemade deodorant the other day!

If you have extremely dry skin or a condition such as eczema and are looking for a more soothing skin treatment you may want to also try my Soothing Homemade Body Butter, it uses coconut oil as well as several additional natural ingredients.
