Homemade body lotions

The simplest homemade body lotion is an old favorite –

Rosewater and Glycerin Lotion

1-1/2 c distilled water
3 tsp rose oil
1/3 c glycerin

(both the glycerin and rose oil can be obtained at most pharmacies but if they do not have rose oil you can substitute 1-2/3 c of “rose water”for the water and rose oil in the formula)

All you need to do is blend the ingredients together until they are smooth; then put them in a clear bottle.

You can’t get any easier than that; unless it is in the next formula:

Seaweed Lotion

1/4 c aloe vera gel
1 tsp powered kelp (seaweed)
1 c purified water
2 Tbsp sweet almond oil

Just mix well and pour into any 12 ox bottle. No blender is needed.

Of course, if you are more adventurous, here is a formula for a “creamier” lotion:

Hand and Face Cream
