DIY Lotion

via Fit & Frugal



  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup beeswax (I used a 1 ounce pastille from Sprouts, which I broke up a little first)
  • 1/4 tablespoon vitamin E oil (I squeezed out 3 vitamin capsules (optional)
  • about 10 drops essential oil of choice (optional)

Combine  the oils and and beeswax into a pint sized canning jar. Put the jar into a saucepan filled with water reaching 3/4 of the way up the jar, not so high that water could be at risk for bubbling its way into the oil mixture. Heat over medium/low, stirring occasionally until everything’s melted. Let cool to room temperature,  stirring vigorously with a fork every 15 minutes or so. Once at room temperature, add in the Vitamin E and essential oil, and voila! Quick fun, the job’s done.
