Homemade Lotion

I made my first homemade lotion today. Although it's great, it is not the consistency that I was looking for. It is more like chap stick. I will definitely use it but I am already looking for ways to improve. Any suggestions would be great. I basically heated up Coconut oil, Olive oil and beeswax in a mason jar over a pot of water. It all melted together and then I poured it in a small jar to cool. I wanted to make it without scent for my daughter's skin, but I'm thinking a lavender oil would be nice to add. I just read about putting this all in a mixer with water and adding vitamin E to soften up the consistency. Not sure I want to ruin my blender with wax just yet.

  1. Maybe more coconut oil and less beeswax? I've never made lotion. Let us know when you develop a recipe that works.
