I’ve been more conscious recently of the products I’m using on my body. I’m paying more attention to the ingredients in the products and determining whether they’re beneficial or not.
Being someone who religiously uses lotion day in and day out, I knew that the lotion I’m using or had used in the past wasn’t the best for my skin.
Coconut oil is something I’ve been familiar with for a while and have actually used on my skin frequently. The problem is that with it being so solid, clumps would fall on the floor when trying to use on my skin. So this easy whipped lotion is perfect and goes smoothly onto my skin.
This simple recipe is all over the web, but I added a bit of macadamia oil, which is high in omega 3. I have extremely dry skin and need the extra boost of fattiness. The other ingredient in this lotion is essential oil. You can use any oil you want, but I used a blend that is called relaxation. I will use this lotion at night before bed, so I knew I’d want something to help relax my body.
You can choose to exclude oil and just whip the coconut oil, but if you do decide to use oil, share with us in the comments, which one you use!
