Whipped Lotion

patchouli whipped coconut

This was the hardest and easiest toiletries replacement I have made. It is very easy to make and use. It has been a little bit hard to stop using the commercial lotions. I still have some left and enjoy their scent. I have to say, though, this whipped lotion does a better job of moisturizing than the commercial stuff. The commercial scent is stronger, but that could be resolved with more oils  in this creamy stuff. I will continue to experiment with amping up the scent in my lotion potion. It is very soothing, almost instantly softens and moisturizes my skin. It may take a little extra time to soak in than other stuff, but the results are very much an improvement, and the extra rubbing in time ends up being a self massage!

Whipped Lotion

1/2 cup coconut oil
10 drops essential oill (I use patchouli or sandalwood)

Place oils in a medium bowl. Using a hand whisk or blender whisk attachment, whip for about two minutes, until fluffy and about doubled in size. Transfer to airtight container. Store at room temperature. To use, scoop out a small amount (about 1/4 of what you would pump out of a typical lotion bottle). Rub lotion between hands to warm. Rub on dry skin and massage until absorbed.
