I LOVE the lotion stick I make, because of many reasons. To start, I dislike how normal lotions leak when I travel or put in my purse. Lotion sticks are super easy to make, easy to use and easy to travel with. Not only are the lotion sticks completely natural and organic, I feel safe applying it on my skin and not worry about getting a rash. I avoid harsh chemicals that are used in other products. This lotion is very good for sensitive skin, since, it contains Shea Butter. Shea Butter is known for increasing circulation to the skin and is anti-aging. Can be very good for psoriasis and eczema. Coconut oil helps with reducing inflammation and helps keep harmful bacteria out. I use the container so that I don’t contaminate the contents in a jar.
Makes 1 two oz ounce stick
2 tablespoons raw organic shea butter
2 teaspoons beeswax
1 tablespoon unrefined coconut oil– solid at room temp (can use extra shea butter if allergic to coconut)
2 teaspoons olive oil OR castor oil
1/4 tsp vitamin E oil
20+ drops of essential oil of choice (optional)
3 drops Clove
20 drops lemon
10 drops lavender
In a double boiler add the shea butter beeswax and coconut oil. Heat until melted. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes and add essential oil and vitamin E oil. Pour into the 2oz containers.
