as far as i'm concerned this whipped body butter is it.
face, hands, cuticles, feet, you name it.
lotion kindly made it's way out of my house years ago when i realized it was actually making my eczema worse (fragrances, chemicals, blah!), rather than soothe it. i found refuge with oils like avocado, almond, sesame & grapeseed but this recipe takes it to another level & i can't get enough.
what you need:
1C coconut oil (unrefined & in a solid state)
1/4C almond oil
1/4C aloe vera gel
30 dashes of lavender essential oil (or your favorite, lavender is one of the most sensitive)
electric hand mixer
what to do:
make sure the coconut oil you are using is in a solid state — this is key to making it fluffy
combine all ingredients in a bowl
use hand mixer to whip into a fluffy texture making sure to break up the hard bits of coconut oil
jar it & you're good to go
keep in mind that in warmer weather this will be more of a liquid than solid, but still works just the same.
tip: try adding to a bath or using for shaving
