Recipe type: Personal Care
Cuisine: NA
Serves: 2 cups
  • 2 cups Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp Vitamin E Oil
  • 8 drops grapefruit essential oil
  • 10 drops tea tree essential oil
  1. Place all the ingredients in an electric stand mixer bowl (or use a handheld electric mixer and a glass bowl).
  2. Using the whisk attachment, slowly increase the mixing speed to medium-high as if you were making egg whites.
  3. Continue mixing for 8-10 minutes. The lotion should be forming soft peaks and look very smooth.
  4. Turn off the mixer and remove the bowl.
  5. Carefully spoon the lotion into a glass container with an air-tight lid such as a wide mouth pint canning jar with a metal lid.*
  6. Store in a location with a consistent temperature.**
*If the lotion is stored in a plastic or metal container, the essential oils in the lotion could damage the container.
**Because the lotion is made from coconut oil, if the temperature become cold, the lotion will harden, and if the temperature gets too warm, the lotion will melt. However, the lotion can still be used; the consistency will simply be altered! If the hardened or melted lotion is undesirable, the lotion can be whipped in the mixer again.
