I so LOVE Bath and Body Work’s candles. They smell simply divine. However, when I look at the ingredient list on their lotions, along with many other commercial lotions, and I don’t like what I see. A lot of ingredients that seem to come from a laboratory.
So, I went to Amazon and I decided to order some beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, and almond oil. Why? I thought it would be great to experiment with making some of my own health and beauty products. This way, I know exactly what is in each one.
I found a recipe for Homemade Lotion that only had 3 ingredients. In the video, the lotion is made using olive oil. Well, I have extra virgin olive oil in my pantry but I didn’t want to smell like an olive. There was some extra virgin coconut oil in the pantry. I thought I’d give it a go. Here’s how it turned out.
3 Ingredient Body Butter
I have received many e-mails asking where you can obtain the beeswax and coconut oil. These ingredients are available at most health food stores and online. Below are links to amazon for your convenience. There are 3 different links to beeswax that are all cosmetic grade…it’s just personal preference regarding white or yellow or you grate your own or pellets.
