I recently stumbled across a rather simple handmade lotion recipe that seems to me to be perfect for beginners, so I thought I’d share it with you, my lovely and ever so crafty readers.

This handmade hand lotion recipe uses ingredients from one of my favorite organic bath and body suppliers, Mountain Rose Herbs. The recipe is easy to make and costs less than a dollar per jar making it frugal while feeling expensive.

It requires only four basic ingredients – hot water (I recommend distilled), emulsifying wax, olive oil, and your favorite essential oil. However, though this recipe does not call for a preservative, because it does contain water, I HIGHLY recommend using one. (You can find out more about preservatives here.)

Once you’ve made your lotions, simply pour into small canning jars and allow to cool overnight. You can then label your creations with the free label downloads from A Sonoma Garden provided at the end of the tutorial.

If you’re already thinking ahead for Christmas, you may also want to download A Sonoma Garden’s free printable Christmas labels. And, for extra dry skin prone to eczema, be sure to try her Easy Winter Hand Salve Recipe.

DIY Scrapes and Scratches Healing Balm Recipe

Scrapes and Scratches Healing Balm Recipe

Ingredients:

1 ounce Beeswax
4 ounces Sweet Almond Oil
5 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
15 drops Lavender Essential Oil
8 drops Tagetes Essential Oil
5 drops Rosemary Essential Oil

Instructions:

1. Place the beeswax and sweet almond oil in a small, heavy-bottomed pan (I use an enamelled iron one).

2. Heat very gently until the beeswax is just melted and no more than that.
3. Add the essential oils and swirl the mixture around in the pan to combine everything together.

4. Pour the mixture into sterilized jars and seal immediately, allowing the balm to cool completely before use.

5. Beeswax can be difficult to remove from pans so be sure to pour all of the balm mixture into your jars. Then, quickly (before the wax hardens) run a paper towel around the pan to get the excess out so it does not go down your drain. Then, place the pan under very hot running water and douse it with plenty of dish washing liquid as soon as you have finished with it.
