Sustainable Lifestyle: DIY Vegan Lotion

April 8, 2016

I've recently discovered homemade body lotion and I'm obsessed! I get a bit weirded out when I read the ingredients of many lotions out on the market today. I want to keep things natural and simple with wholesome ingredients so I decided to make my own. It's rather simple! Here's my recipe:


-One cup coconut oil

-One cup cocoa butter

-1-2 tablespoons vitamin e oil - optional 

-1-2 tablespoons topical vegetable glycerin - optional

-Rose oil or oil of your choice - optional


Melt the coconut oil and cocoa butter together in a pan; once melted, place the oils in the firdge to firm up together (a few hours). Once firm, place them in the bowl of your stand mixer. Let them whip for 5-10 minutes or until light colored and very fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients and whip one last time until incorporated. Then, package in glass jars and store in a temperate area (if it's too warm it will melt).
