How to Make Your Own Body Lotion

feelgood quickie header logodiy body lotion

Last week we looked at how to make your own deodorant, and today I wanted to keep the DIY beauty inspiration going with this recipe for homemade body lotion!

Store-bought creams and lotions are often full of mystery ingredients, and if you want to buy something more natural, the price tag can be on the high side. Plus, store-bought lotions come in single-use, disposable containers. Boo on that! Instead of hitting the big box store for something that you don’t totally feel good about, try whipping up your own all natural vanilla body lotion instead.

This video from gorgeously green shows you how easy it is to make body lotion yourself. If you can’t find the ingredients for this at your local natural foods store or co-op, we have many of them in our brand new Feelgood Style Shop’s DIY Beauty Supplies section!

Do any of you guys make your own cosmetics? I’d love to hear what you’re whipping up in the comments!
