homemade beeswax lotion

November 29, 2011

i am grateful … so very grateful to have stumbled across something so  potentially valuable for our family.

homemade lotion. who knew?! i had dabbled in making moisturizers before but didn’t have great success. for us, and for our girl especially, finding a good moisturizer is a deal-breaker. it’s that important.

and as a mama, i am constantly faced with choosing something that may provide some temporary relief but is filled with chemicals (and/or pharmaceuticals). after all, i want both short-term relief and long-term healing – now, for both of my kids.

so i am overjoyed {and tempering my total exhilaration as we should wait a few days for full effect} about this lotion we made last night.

it was super easy to make and we had everything on hand but the beeswax. i spent a total of $2.16 on the beeswax, and had the coconut oil and olive oil (key ingredients in my kitchen) and calendula oil already..

it is luxurious, and thick but not too thick. it smells delightful – beeswax! and best of all … ,my girl loves it. her skin loves it, and her skin can immediately “diagnose” whether a lotion feels good. she can envision healing. thank GOD.

{not super clear but you can get an idea of how it looks!}

    Beautiful 🙂
    Deut. 28 describes not being able to put olive oil on our bodies as a consequence of disobedience. Seems like the converse would be that olive oil on our skin is a blessing. Glad you’re receiving the blessings– beautiful 🙂
