When I found a recipe for a lotion that is not greasy, actually absorbs and works, I thought I would give it a try!
Have you ever heard of hard hand lotion? Well, it is so rad. It looks like a bar of soap but the warmth of your hands gently melts it as you apply it to your skin. It is made from 3 simply ingredients. Coconut oil (I love this stuff), Shea butter, and beeswax. You could also add essential oils for different scents or even cocoa powder for a soft chocolate scent. That's it!
I took the three ingredients, melted them down in a double boiler, poured into molds, and that is it. It takes less than 20 minutes to be able to enjoy silky smooth hands! As a added benefit, the smell of beeswax and coconut oil is just heavenly!

This week I plan to make homemade natural sunblock, bug repellent, diaper rash cream and whipped Shea butter!
