Making your own body lotion can be fun and gives you more control over what you’re putting on your skin. Pulse shea butter, coconut oil, vegetable glycerin, vitamin E oil, and extra virgin olive oil in a blender on high speed until they’re fully mixed together without any lumps. You can also add 1 teaspoon of an essential oil to give your lotion a nice fragrance. Transfer your lotion to an airtight glass or plastic container. If you keep the lotion in a cool, dry area, it should last for at least 18 months. Make sure you clean and disinfect your blender before using it for food.
