5 Easy Lotion Recipes
This post may contain affiliate links.

Have you looked at the ingredients on your favorite lotion lately?  Preservatives, parabens, and other chemicals.  Yuck!  Luckily, making an easy lotion recipe isn't as hard as you think!

Homemade Coconut Oil Lotion - Coconut oil is wonderful for your skin!  This recipe uses emulsifying wax, which helps the oil and water bind together.

Two Ingredient Body Lotion - This is super easy to make!  Just uses almond oil and aloe vera gel.

Easy Intensive Hand Lotion - Substitute coconut oil for the petroleum and organic lotion for the baby lotion.

Homemade Hand and Body Cream - This is a little harder when set because of the shea butter and cocoa butter, both of which heal damaged skin.

DIY Homemade Lotion - This page gives you a basic formula and directions, but you can use your favorite ingredients!  Perfect if you already have a few ingredients on hand.

I like to store my easy lotion recipes in mason jars.  The plastic lids are perfect to keep them fresh and easier to use than traditional mason jar lids.
