Benefits of Making Homemade Lotions

Making homemade lotions has numerous benefits beyond just the joy of creating something with your own hands. One of the most significant advantages is the peace of mind that comes from knowing exactly what you’re putting on your skin. You can rest assured that the ingredients are all-natural and safe for your body. Additionally, making your own lotions can save you a considerable amount of money, especially if you’re interested in using high-quality, organic ingredients. But it’s not just about the cost savings. The process of making homemade lotions can be a relaxing and creative hobby that provides a sense of accomplishment and pride. And there’s nothing quite like giving the gift of a homemade lotion to a loved one, showcasing your thoughtfulness and care. 

What’s in This Solid Lotion Bar Recipe?

Almond Oil

Almond Oil is rich in vitamin E, which helps to soothe and protect skin from environmental stressors. Plus, its lightweight and non-greasy texture will leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed.

Shea Butter

It’s no surprise that Shea Butter has been used for centuries to moisturize and heal the skin. Besides being rich in vitamins A, E, and F, it contains fatty acids that improve elasticity and protect against environmental stressors. Not to mention, it’s non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog your pores!


Beeswax is a two-for-one in this recipe! It gives the lotion bar a solid consistency and has amazing benefits for your skin. Beeswax is a humectant, meaning it attracts and retains moisture, keeping your skin hydrated and smooth.


Looking for a way to make a solid lotion bar that isn’t too greasy or thick? Look no further than cornstarch! This ingredient leaves the recipe feeling less greasy on your skin. But for those looking to take their recipe to the next level, consider switching out cornstarch for Simply Earth’s Natrasorb Bath Powder. This high-quality powder will ensure your lotion bar holds onto its fragrance longer and delivers a luxurious feel to your skin.

Pine Essential Oil

Pine Essential Oil creates a wonderful evergreen and woody aroma that will uplift your senses. But that’s not all! It also cleanses and deodorizes the skin, leaving it fresh and revitalized.

Bergamot Essential Oil

With its fresh, citrusy, and floral aroma, Bergamot Essential Oil has been shown to both uplift and calm mood, and even balance cravings. What’s more, this versatile oil has natural deodorizing properties, making it the perfect addition to your skincare routine.

Ho Wood Essential Oil

Ho Wood Essential Oil’s combination of woody and floral scent is soothing to the senses, as well as calming and centering. Plus, it helps to rejuvenate your skin, making it the perfect choice for those with minor skin irritations in need of healing.

Autumn Air Essential Oil Blend

One of the key ingredients of this recipe is Autumn Air Essential Oil Blend, which boasts a delightfully spicy aroma and has uplifting properties. That means not only will you benefit from this lotion’s moisturizing properties, but you’ll also feel invigorated and refreshed with every use.
