Do-It-Yourself: Make Your Own Lotion

A Sonoma’s Garden shows you how to make your own lotion. Plus, she has free downloadable labels you can print out and stick on jars to give this as gifts!

Her blog was new to me and I had so much fun looking at some of her other posts. If you have a chance, be sure to check out: How to Make An Easy Winter Hand Salve, How to Make Homemade Chapstick and How to Make Homemade Laundry Detergent.

Do you have a fun and frugal DIY idea to share? I’d love to hear about it! Read the submission guidelines and submit it here.

    Just a warning: the recipe does not work if you substitute beeswax for emulsifying wax (which has chemical ingredients). I’m trying to make an all-natural lotion (i.e. no chemicals) and haven’t yet found a good recipe with JUST beeswax (no Borax either because that’s not good for sensitive skin). I’m trying a new recipe today though, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

    Thank you Crystal for linking to my site! Emily, you can use beeswax, however you will need to use a stick blender to mix it so that it won’t separate. It takes longer and is a bit messier to do that, however worth it if you prefer beeswax.
