Body Lotion

MishMashGlobe | BodyLotion

I have been trying to make my body lotion rather than buying it for a few years now. This is the recipe that I find myself going back to again and again.

Water Part
300g distilled water
2g panthenol
4g vegetable glycerin
1g silk peptides
1g sea kelp bioferment

Oil Part
14g e-wax
36g oil (grapeseed, avocado, almond, etc)
2g cetyl alcohol

Cool Down Additives
1g germal plus
0.5g vitamin E
2g essential oil (optional)

Measure the water and oil part into different heat safe bowls and put into a water bath on the stove and heat until everything is melted. Once melted, add the oil part to the water part. The liquid will immediately turn cloudy white.

Take the liquid out of the water bath and mix with a hand blender. It will take awhile to thicken, so blend for a few minutes and let sit for a few minutes to thicken. Repeat until the mixture thickens into a lotion consistency. Once the mixture cools down, add the cool down additives and mix in.
