DIY Sprayable Lotion Recipe with Shea Butter & Safflower
This sprayable lotion recipe is really easy to make, it’s not greasy feeling and it leaves your skin feeling super soft after applying. You will however need to use a refined shea butter rather than raw shea butter to ensure this stays smooth and sprayable, but you can easily customize it with the fragrance of your choice. I scented mine with one of my own favorites, Red Velvet Cake.
Shea Butter & Safflower Sprayable Lotion Recipe
2 oz. safflower oil
.5 oz. refined & deodorized shea butter
.1 oz. stearic acid
1 oz. Cyclomethicone
.25 oz. Dimethicone
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.25 oz. walnut oil
.5 oz. refined hemp seed oil
.15 oz. fragrance oil, optional
Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the shea butter and stearic acid in a medium glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in at 60% power in the microwave just until it’s almost fully melted. Carefully removed from the microwave – use a towel as the glass does get hot! – and stir with a fork until the stearic acid has melted completed.
Weigh out the remaining ingredients and combine with the melted shea butter and stearic acid. Stir well.
To use simply spray on as desired and massage into skin. Shake well before each use.
