DIY 3 Ingredient Lotion Recipe
- 1/3 cup shea butter

- 10 drops lavender essential oil
- 5 drops chamomile essential oil (optional)
- In a microwave safe bowl, melt the shea butter in 30 seconds increments until completely melted.

- Add in your essential oils and mix once more.

What if I don’t have the semisolid coconut oil? Can I use the liquid coconut oil? Pls reply
If you use liquid, you won’t be able to make a whipped lotion. Just place your liquid coconut oil in the fridge for a few hours and it should get to the perfect semi-solid state 🙂
