SHEA BUTTER BODY LOTION RECIPE

 

Hello,
Would you be interested in making this Natural body lotion?

SHEA BUTTER BODY LOTION

Especially great if you want to use Shea Butter but you are not a fan of its heaviness, or you have oily skin so you will appreciate a light natural body lotion.

Then let's get making.

 

INGREDIENTS FOR SHEA BUTTER BODY LOTION

4 tbsp Emulsifying Wax

200ml of  Aloe Vera Juice

60g Shea Butter

5 drops of Lemon Essential Oil 

5 drops of  Rosemary Essential Oil. 

 

  

HOW TO MAKE SHEA BUTTER BODY LOTION

  1. Melt the Emulsifying Wax with the Raw Shea Butter in the double-boiler. 
  2. Once everything is completely melted take the mixture out of the double-boiler.
  3. Stand the Aloe Vera Juice in a bath of hot water to raise the temperature
  4. Stir the melted mixture constantly until a bit cool
  5. Check and make sure that the temperature of the Aloe Juice and that of the melted mixture is the same
  6. Now start adding the warm Aloe Vera juice, little by little, to the mixture while stirring vigorously.
  7. Add the Lemon and Rosemary Essential Oil and continue stirring.
  8. It might take a while but the mixture will eventually thicken and become smooth.


IMPORTANT- It is important to make small quantity at a time because this has no preservatives, so won't last long.

    Hello Fortune,
    Thanks so much for your support. I think you will find the result of this recipe to be very light and not oily at all. I think it is a good way for oily skin to enjoy shea butter.
