Homemade Lotion Recipe
This homemade lotion recipe makes approximately 8oz (250ml) sandalwood boody lotion.
Storing Homemade Body Lotion - Important!I have found that whenever my homemade lotions, moisturizers or sunscreens get too hot they separate. Because they don't have the same chemicals as commercial products, these natural moisturizers really do need to be stored in a cool(ish) location.
Customizing Your Homemade Lotion RecipeFor a thicker consistency, (more like a cream) add a little more emulsifying wax (up to a half a teaspoon more.) For a thinner consistency, add just a little less.
Hydrosols are made when plants are steam distilled to create essential oils. They contain the same properties as the essential oil, in a more dilute (and often less expensive) form.
