  • 1 Pound Shea Butter
  • 1 ounce 100% Beeswax
  • 1/3 cup of Coconut Oil (you can use another carrier like Almond or olive oil for slightly different consistencies)
  • Lavender  & Melrose Oils
  • Vitamin E

You will also need to use a  double boiler  to create your lotion. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can do what we did and melt the pot of butter, oils and wax in a nested pot.  The larger pot has water and the inside pot holding the oils. This creates a similar affect as a double boiler as you add the ingredients to the bowl on top.  Be careful to stir it regularly to prevent it from scorching.

Place the shea butter and beeswax in the top of your double boiler and melt. As these melt and begin to blend on their own, add the lavender oil and Vitamin E.

Mix the ingredients well.  The oils should become translucent.  When this happens you can remove the boiler from the heat.  Then let it cool.

Once the lotion looses the translucent “look” and begins to look more like butter stir it heavily with a wire whisk.  You want it to be really creamy and whisking helps add air bubbles to the oils.

Let the oil cool completely.  We left it on the counter overnight.   After it has set the lotion should be more hard.  We used an ice cream scoop to scoop out balls of lotion.  We put those into nifty little jars.  So cute!  And perfect for the diaper bag or backpack.

You have wonderful lotion balls to share with friends, use as gifts or keep in your bathroom to pamper yourself with after a long day! However you choose to use them, the soothing smells of the oils along with the smooth feel of your homemade lotion are sure to be thoroughly enjoyed!
