This after sun lotion recipe is for a 3 oz. travel size lotion bottle. If you are using a larger bottle, do the math to be sure you’ve got the right amounts of everything.
Travel size lotion bottle or a glass jar
4 tbsp. shea butter with vitamin C natural lotion (or your favorite plain, unscented lotion.)
1 tsp. jojoba oil
8 drops pure lavender essential oil
5 drops pure roman chamomile essential oil
Label and scotch tape if desired
There are 2 ways you can go about this, and I will tell you this mainly because I learned the hard way and want to spare you from doing what I did!
If you are using a bottle with a nice open top or a jar though, mix ingredients in a measuring cup. First, measure out your lotion and then add the jojoba oil to it.
Whisk them up nicely to get them well blended, and then add your essential oils. Once it’s all blended, place into your lotion bottle.
If your lotion bottle has a small opening at the top, then go ahead and add ingredients right into the bottle itself and then do some shaking and stirring with a stir stick to get it all mixed. If you try mixing it outside the bottle in a measuring cup, it is really hard once you whip it all together to get it back into the bottle without a disaster!
