Make your own lotion!Posted: October 29, 2010
I was thinking about why I buy the things that I do, especially self care products. There is this illusion that things like soap, lotion, shampoo, toothpaste and deodorant are things you can’t make yourself because of all the chemicals you see on the ingredients list. I found out that those chemicals are not necessary to make lotion (or any other product). You only need a few ingredients that you use already: water, oil and wax! Believe it or not, I already have alot of the ingredients needed to make not only lotion, but creams, lip balms, toothpaste and soap! You probably do too!
I found this basic recipe at Wabi Sabi Baby. It’s a good place to start if you want to try doing this. I’m having fun testing out all kinds of lotion recipes, but I haven’t created ‘the one’ yet. Just like any recipe, sometimes it takes time and a little tweaking to find the one you like!
