DIY Pumpkin Spice Body Lotion

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a small, heat safe glass bowl combine the sweet almond oil, shea butter, beeswax, and rosehip seed oil. Place this over a small saucepan partially filled with boiling water to create a double boiler.
  2. Gently stir the mixture, just until melted with a metal spoon. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes before stirring in the essential oils and vitamin E oil.
  3. Pour the oil mixture into a *very* clean blender, and place the pitcher in the fridge for about 20 minutes, until it looks opaque and thickened, but it’s not solid. You want it to be the consistency of room temperature butter.
  4. Place the pitcher on your blender and turn it onto a medium low speed. Very sloooowly drizzle the distilled water in the top using a glass measuring cup. If your blender has a lid that allows you to just remove the center part, then do that.
  5. Once all of the water has been drizzled in, then increase the speed to medium and blend for an additional 20 seconds. Immediately pour your creation into a glass container and store away from light and heat. Be sure to use it within a few months, always apply with clean hands, and keep your lid tightly secured when not in use.
