Homemade lotions can save you lots of money and help you avoid toxic chemicals. If you love using lotion instead of oils to moisturize your skin, here are a few simple steps to make your own supply.
The basic recipe for lotion making is just about combining oils and water with an emulsifier. Depending on your needs, you can make the lotion creamier, heavier or lighter by adjusting the ratio of oil to water.
Although most emulsifiers are chemical-based or chemically modified natural products, we recommend using emulsifiers that are not derived from mineral oils or animals, and do not contain borax or triethanolamine.
