Seasonal Recipes: Whipped Coconut Lotion with Frankincense and Vitamin E.

This coconut body lotion is really quick and easy to make, and results in a lotion with a light, soufflé-like texture.


1 cup coconut oil, room temp
1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
5 drops essential oil of your choice (effective essential oils for skin lotions include lavender, frankincense and geranium)

Whip for 6 mins in an electric mixer, pour into an ambient-temperature jar (so it doesn’t return to oil-like consistency)

Stores well for over six months – on really hot, sunny days, place in the fridge.
