A silky smooth homemade lotion.
Immediately pour the lotion into a jar and store away from light and heat.
Water Note: Using water, without a preservative, shortens the life-span of products significantly, so it's always best to use water-based products for short-term use. This recipe provided makes a lot of lotion, so I cut the amounts provided here in half. I think the halved recipe is the perfect amount since I'm the only person using on a daily basis. I also store my lotion in the fridge since I don't add a preservative. The lotion isn't "pumpable" when it's stored in the fridge (I keep mine in a jar), but it's still just as lovely.

Preservative: If you'd like to add a preservative, Leucidal Complete is my recommendation (this is very affordable, if you're going to make lotion on a regular basis). You can read more about how to use it (amount needed) and how it works, here.
I've found that the best way to clean the utensils and jars after making this lotion is to use my Sal Suds dish soap and hot water.
