The very first thing you will need to know how to do is infuse herbs in oils. So head on over to this post to learn that process.
I'm gonna let ya'll in on a little secret, however: you don't have to use an oil infusion. I started off with using just regular avocado oil in this recipe and still loooooved it. But using a rose petal or rose hips oil infusion really ups the game on this stuff because rose moisturizes and causes your skin to glow! It is well worth the wait! But if you are new to infusions then you can simply start your infusion, but also make yourself this recipe using regular avocado oil while you are waiting for your infusion to finish (it takes anywhere from 4-6 weeks for an herbal oil infusion to be ready).
The recipe makes enough to put a 16oz bottle of it in 2 bathrooms (since most people have 2 bathrooms in their homes). If you only want 1 then all you need to do is cut it in half. You ONLY need an amount smaller than the size of a dime every time you use it.
Don't wanna take the time to buy all the supplies or make it yourself? No problem! Buy from me and I'll send you some! Here's where you can order it.
Now here is the recipe!
Lavender-Lemon Sanitizing Lotion
- 1 c. Rosehips or rosebud infused Avocado Oil (waaaaay cheaper to buy the oil from
- 2 c. Aloe Vera Gelly
- 1 tsp. Vitamin E Oil
- 1/2 c. Witch Hazel
- 1 TBSP Lavender Essential Oil
- 1 TBSP Lemon Essential Oil
TOOLS YOU WILL NEED:
- Glass Mixing bowl (or metal is fine)
1. Add all ingredients to mixing bowl and whisk hard for at least 30 seconds. Let sit for
another 30 seconds. If the oil begins to pool and the mixture continues to look like liquid,
then whisk for 30 more seconds. Repeat this for however many times (usually takes me
3 - 5 times) until mixture has the consistency of lotion and is mixed all the way through.
Add lotion to your soap dispenser and you’re done
