DIY Sprayable Lotion Recipe with Shea Butter & Safflower

Sprayable Shea Butter Lotion Recipe

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.

DIY Sprayable Shea Butter Lotion Recipe

Shea Butter & Safflower Sprayable Lotion Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen


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.

Using a small funnel pour the liquid lotion evenly into two 4 oz. glass bottles or three 2 oz. glass bottles with a fingertip misters. Shake well.

To use simply spray on as desired and massage into skin. Shake well before each use.

    Does it have to go in a glass bottle? My daughter is horrible at holding on to things and drops stuff all the time.

      You could use a plastic or metal bottle if desired. I’m a clutz too! 😉
