Recipe for Homemade Lotion using Beautiful Violets

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Measure out the violet infused oil and the beeswax into a quart-sized mason jar.
  2. Fill a saucepan with a few inches of water, put the jar in the water, and bring the water to a boil on the stovetop, melting the wax.
  3. Once the wax is melted, remove the jar from the heat, and whisk in the clay, vitamin E, and essential oil (if using them.)
  4. Allow the oil/wax mixture to cool down to room temperature while you measure out the remaining ingredients into a small jar.
  5. When the mixture is cooled enough, the hardening wax will cause the oil to become cloudy and the edges will start to harden.
  6. Stir the water and aloe vera juice together. 
  7. Slowly add in a stream of aloe/water while using your stick blender to emulsify the mixture.
  8. Blend with the stick blender for a couple of minutes until the lotion is creamy and smooth and there aren't any streaks of oil or chunks of beeswax remaining.
  9. Store, covered, in a cool place. If you won't be using it very quickly, refrigeration will prolong the shelf-life.
