Betcha didn’t know that whipping up your very own scented lotion was SO EASY! If you’re already making a scented body scrub, why not make a matching lotion too? Not only will they be the perfect pair for your skin, together they make a great gift! And like it or not, we’re getting pretty darn close to the holiday season!
So while you’re busy in the kitchen making your home smell fall-esque, change up your bath products too. Warm banana bread is a yummy fragrance for cozy days spent in leggings and oversized sweaters.
Here’s how to make your own batch!
To 1 cup of lotion base I added 1 teaspoon of fragrance oil
and about 1 TBS of vitamin E oil (I just squeezed it straight from the bottle into the lotion).
With your whisk, beat all of the ingredients together until you no longer see a separation of oil and lotion. This may take a few minutes. Just be sure you really whisk it well to incorporate everything together.
Spoon the lotion into a lidded jar or old lotion bottle (I used a mason jar which turned out really cute!) for storage and use as needed. Like I mention above, this lotion is the perfect follow up to a matching sugar scrub. Both are so easy to make but when used together leave your skin feeling soft and smelling oh-so delightful!
